MARY: OUR MODEL IN ORDINARY LIFE "We can't forget that Mary spent nearly every day of her life just like millions of other women who look after their families, bring up their children, and take care of their houses. Mary sanctifies the ordi­nary, everyday things -- what some people wrongly regard as un­important and insignificant: everyday work, looking after those closest to you, visits to friends and relatives. What a blessed or­dinariness, that can be so full of love of God." Let us offer to our Mother today: Affectionate details of service and attention to those closest to us.
