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
