St. Frances of Rome
You are your child's first and most important teacher. You will make the greatest impact on the person they become. Do not take your job lightly! Do not let society tell you that what you do as a mom is not valuable. You have the most important job in the world! Jesus himself said, "Whoever obeys and teaches these commandments will be called greatest in the Kingdom of heaven."
One more thing: Today's saint, St. Frances of Rome was a wife and mother who in her youth wanted to serve the Lord. Her family had other plans and she married and had children. She was able to serve God where she was, where He wanted her to be. I really like this quote attributed to her, "Says Frances of Rome: “It is most laudable in a married woman to be devout, but she must never forget that she is a housewife. And sometimes she must leave God at the altar to find Him in her housekeeping” (Butler’s Lives of the Saints).
Prayer: Dear Lord, Help me to realize the value in what I do each day. Help me to teach my children to live by your commandments and to do your will. St. Frances of Rome, pray for me. Amen.
