Mother: A true VIP

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
