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: than to be a Mother?
