Cardinal Mindszenty’s Praise of Mothers

by Cesar Franco on May 9, 2020

“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
