What is More Glorious?

Some days as a work at home mother, keeping the correct emphasis on the mother part requires a lot of discipline. These words of Joseph Cardinal Mindszenty help me keep my priorities focused:

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?

— Joseph Cardinal Mindszenty

    Thanks, Giselle. There are a number of online blogs catering to work at home moms. What makes this one unique, I think, is my belief that motherhood IS glorious, and the non-mom skills many of us mothers have can also be used for the greater good. Getting to work with other like-minded moms who have expressed an interest is an added blessing!
