The most important person on earth is a mother

Patty Knap

Years ago, I came across a beautiful poem celebrating the joy of motherhood.

It was so striking that I posted it on the refrigerator where it stayed for years. When it was finally faded and tattered, I went online to find and print it again.

Here it is:

"The Most Important Person on Earth is a Mother"

"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?" ~ Venerable Jozsef Cardinal Mindszenty

Those words so perfectly exemplify the saving work of pregnancy centers!
