Mothers 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—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

Moms make us strong. They are our shelter in the storm, they teach us to overcome. Moms protect us. We owe a great debt to our mom. All the world owes a debt to these powerful women.

Thank you to the women who have said yes to life and offered the best of themselves to raise their children. They are the true heroes that build our society and allow us to flourish.

Make sure to wish your mom and all moms a Happy Mother’s Day for their loving heroic life.
