“Giuseppe Sarto, the future Pope Pius X, visited his 70-year-old mother after being ordained a bishop. She kissed her son’s ring and, suddenly pensive, pointed out her own simple silver wedding band saying, ‘Yes, Giuseppe, you would not be wearing that ring if I had not first worn mine.’” — Eucharistic Adoration for the Sanctification of Priests and Spiritual Maternity by Congregatio Pro Clericis
