Holy housewives

July 5, 2013

Devotion in a married woman is most praiseworthy, but she must never forget that she is a housewife.  Sometimes she must leave God at the altar, to serve Him in her housekeeping.
(St Frances of Rome)

A few months ago, on the Roman Catholic Spiritual Direction website blog, Fr John Bartunek LC responded to an inquiry concerning married women growing in spirituality/holiness.  His response, along with many of the Comments from readers (which can be found at the end of the article), offered quite a few suggestions.  Perhaps this topic might interest some women in our Community, or provide them with resources to suggest to their daughters or daughters-in-law.
