The Most Important Person on Earth
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 - 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 creatures. 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
The above is a writing I just love to share for Mother's day. I want to add that in my opinion, having a mother is as glorious as being one. Our Moms chose life. Also, this weekend is a wonderful time to thank those who have been like a mother in our lives. A phone call or note can be VERY meaningful. Remember too, Our Heavenly Mother Mary loves you...go to her in prayer and ask for her intercession. She will not let you down I promise.
Happy Mother's Day!
