'My Superior'

'I remember reading that obedience to one's superior is more meritorious than all the self-imposed mortifications, fastings, and prayers.

'Then I realized my superior is really my vocation as a wife and mother.  Therefore, my duties and responsibilities of motherhood must come first.  And, done with the right intention - for the greater glory of God - all my actions are lifted up in prayer.'  (from our friend Rose)
