My wife found this great quote over at the Oremus blog.
"Every mother, when she picks up the young life that has been born to her, looks up to the heavens to thank God for the gift which made the world young again. But here was a Mother, a Madonna, who did not look up. She looked down to Heaven, for this was Heaven in her arms."
- Archbishop Fulton Sheen
Fit's pretty well with the Kissing the Face of God Christmas card, doesn't it?
