A Mother's Prayer

I recieved this prayer from a sister after giving birth at the hospital. It made me cry!  This sums it all up...what a miracle a baby is. That we as women can grow a perfect human being inside our bodies! Its amazing to think about!

A Mother’s Prayer

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 human creature.

God joins forces with mothers in performing this act of creation...what on God's earth is

more glorious than this:


Happy Mother's Day!
