Each May the Pro-Life Ministry
honors our Mothers
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
