“Blessed is the womb that bore you, and the breasts that you sucked!” Mike and Terri Aquilina offer a rich array of evidence for the emotional, physical, spiritual and psychological importance of breastfeeding. Drawing on everything from scriptures and the Church Fathers to modern medical journals and Pope John Paul II, they posit that “breastfeeding has a ‘sacramental’ quality; it stands as a natural sign of something divine. Indeed, it is among the most profound and personal experiences of the divine beauty revealed in nature.” Such an important message for mothers today!
