To Be a Mother

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?

Probably you know the Youtube video “May feelings”. Young students of Universities of Madrid say reasons pray the holy rosary. (in Spanish, with english subtitles)
See it:
It is one of the most watched videos on Youtube in May.
