A few beautiful words from Cardinal Pie on motherhood

“Let us remember these words of Christ: ‘And for them do I sanctify myself, that they also may be sanctified in truth.’ Every Catholic mother should say these same words.

Only God knows the influence that the sanctity of a mother has on the soul of her children. Almost all the great saints have had very pious mothers. The first grace that is given to a man is to have a mother according to the heart of God.

Dear mothers, your motherhood does not end until you have formed Jesus Christ in the heart of your children. Baptism is only a seed and the baptized is nothing but a newborn. After planting the seed, it is necessary to make it grow. That is your mission, and you will not be able to carry it out unless you yourselves are holy.”
