Rome for the Home

Since today is the feast of St. Frances of Rome, I would like to share some great advice from her for all you housewives and homeschool moms out there:
"It is most laudable in a married woman to be devout, but she must never forget that she is a housewife and sometimes she must leave God at the altar to find him in her housekeeping." —St. Frances of Rome
When you can find God in the little things, in the every-day, mundane chores, then these things become more like something you do for the greater glory of God and less like things that you merely do because you have to. I know, I know, easier said than done, but that doesn't mean that it can't be an ideal for which we can all strive, whether you are a stay-at-home mom or not.

Pax Christi,

I find it easier to glorify God in my duties as a housewife more so than being a secretary. I choose housewifery :D
