Prayer of Prolifers/Most Important Person--A Mother


Holy Card with a prayer on the front and back.

The front reads: 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 human creature...What on God's earth is more glorious than this: to be a Mother. Cardinal Joseph Mindszenty.

The back reads: The Prayer of Pro-Lifers: O God, The Father and Creator of human life, help us never to become discouraged in defending the full breath of that most precious gift, from the miracle of fertilization to the spiritual serenity of a natural death. Inspire us to remember that without you we are powerless, and that what we do for the least, especially the helpless unborn dearest to you, we are actually doing for your Son, who lives and works in and through us. Protect us against the wiles and wickedness of the devil, "a murderer and a liar from the beginning." May the Holy Spirit enlighten us along our daily way! Amen. Rev. Paul Marx, OSB
