Honoring My 2 Mothers for Mother's Day 2011

Mary, our Heavenly Mother

My earthly Mother in between myself and my younger sister 

"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 place for an immortal soul, the tiny perfection of her baby's body...Even the angels have not been given such a grace! What is more glorious than this - to be a mother."  
-Joseph Cardinal Mindszenty
On this Mother's Day, I am so grateful for the gift of motherhood!  

Today I pray for my own mother ( I love you Mom!), my deceased grandmothers, mothers who give birth to their children in sometimes the most difficult circumstances, mothers who adopt their children, woman who are struggling with infertility who long to be mothers, and children, young and old, whose mothers are no longer here on earth.

Happy and Blessed Mother's Day!
