Happy Mother’s Day

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
