As we celebrate and remember our mothers, and all the mother figures in our lives, the Pro Life Committee would like to share a beautiful essay on motherhood. We wish all the mothers in our parish family many blessings on this special day and always!
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 acts of creation…
What on God’s good earth is more glorious than this: to be a mother?
~ Venerable Joseph Cardinal Mindszenty
