Happy Mother’s Day

 

The Most Important Person on earth is a mother.

She cannot claim the honor of having built Notre Dame Cathedral.

She need not.

She has built something more magnificent than any cathedral-a dwelling for an immortal soul, the tiny perfection of her baby’s body.

…The angels have not been blessed with such a grace.

They cannot share in God’s creative miracle to bring

new saints to Heaven.

Only a human mother can.

Mothers are closer to God the Creator

than any other creature;

God joins forces with mothers in

performing this act of creation…

What on God’s good earth is more glorious

than this: to be a mother?



-Joseph Cardinal Mindszenty
