The Most Important Personon earth is a mother. She
cannot claim the honor ofhaving built Notre Dame
Cathedral. She need not. Shehas built something moremagnificent than any
cathedral-a dwelling for an
immortal soul, the tiny
perfection of her baby's
body…The angels have notbeen blessed with such a
grace. They cannot share inGod's creative miracle to bringnew saints to Heaven. Only ahuman mother can. Mothersare closer to God the Creatorthan any other creature; Godjoins forces with mothers inperforming this act ofcreation…What on God'sgood earth is more gloriousthan this: to be a mother?
-Joseph Cardinal Mindszenty
Here is a wonderful and famous hymn to remind us of the simple beauty of creation. (A link is included if you wish to also hear it)
Refrain: All things bright and beautiful,
all creatures great and small, all things wise and wonderful: the Lord God made them all. 1. Each little flower that opens, each little bird that sings, God made their glowing colors, and made their tiny wings. (Refrain) 2. The purple-headed mountains, the river running by, the sunset and the morning that brightens up the sky. (Refrain) 3. The cold wind in the winter, the pleasant summer sun, the ripe fruits in the garden: God made them every one. (Refrain) 4. God gave us eyes to see them, and lips that we might tell how great is God Almighty, who has made all things well. (Refrain)
