Mother’s Day

A very Happy Mother’s Day to the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of Jesus Christ and the model for all Catholic Mothers, and to all of the mothers out there! Have a wonderful day!

“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

    Thank you Damsel for that wonderful post. I say this prayer each day at None for all the Faithful but those in Holy Orders and Religious life in particular From the Mirror of Our Lady: O most Blessed Virgin,you stood by your Son, sharing in the pain of His passion, pray that we would never weigh lightly the redemption that He won for us by his wounds on the tree. Amen
