Some gems from Fulton Sheen

I love that bishop.

Was watching one of his old videos in which he shared two profound thoughts on motherhood.

We are in a sense like Christ... think of His words at the Last Supper and apply them to an expectant mother who might say the same thing to her child: "Take and eat, this is my body... this is my blood."

Also, regarding the responsibility to raise our children with a strong sense of morals and spirituality he said: "Whenever a child is conceived, a crown is made in Heaven. Woe to the woman if that crown is forever empty."
