"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 swelling 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 Creater than all other creatures. 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?"

By: Joseph Cardinal Mindzenty

Crane Family Bedtime Prayer

Father, who I cannot see,
Look down from Heaven on little me,
The angels through my darkness spread
Their holy wings about my bed.
Keep me safe because I am
The Heavenly Shepherd's little Lamb.
God Bless my family and
Help me to be a good little boy/girl.
