Motherhood and Cathedrals

A mother is the most important person on earth. 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. 
                 – Joseph Cardinal Mindszenty

    And, of course, both describe Our Lady of Sorrows.
