Duty Before Holiness

One more link from one of my favorite Catholic Christian bloggers, Jennifer at Conversion Diary:

Duty Before Holiness

Let me know if this hits home for you as much as it did for me.

Oh yeah... This quote from St. Frances of Rome really opened my eyes, and at the same time it's comforting: "A married woman must often leave God at the altar to find Him in her household care."
I have just started reading the 1997 abridged edition of "Holiness for Housewives" by Dom Hubert van Zellar (orig. copyright 1951). Chap 1 begins with "Don't be misled by a false notion of holiness." Good reading there.

I don't get many comments here, it was fun to hear from you, Barb!
