St. Rachel (17th century BC)
Rachel was a wife of the Old Testament Patriarch, Jacob. She spent many years of her marriage ashamed of her sterility, then thought to be a sign of God's disfavor. However, late in life she had two sons, Joseph and Benjamin.

Reflections from the Saints

Mary seeks for those who approach her devoutly and with reverence, for such she loves, nourishes, and adopts as her children.
– St. Bonaventure
