I found this quote on my Parler account this morning. I’m not sure I have ever given this as much thought as it deserves.
“The Most Important Person on earth is a mother. She cannot claim the honour 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?”József Cardinal Mindszenty
I did a little research on Cardinal Mindszenty, and he lived an incredible life of service very much like the Apostle Paul. Take moment to read this short narrative from the History Channel on the life of this incredible servant of God. After reading the above from the History Channel, I have one last link for you to follow. This link takes to the U.S. Embassy website in Hungary and gives a first hand account of the Cardinal’s arrival there.
