'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)
