You might be tempted to think that living the Gospel message is all about shouting from the rooftops. Dorcas is an example of a woman quietly living the gospel right where she is. Clearly the early church viewed her work of taking care of the poor and sewing for the widows as important. Even Peter knew about her. And apparently, her work wasn't done.
One more thing: Society has a way of telling moms that the domestic life isn't important. The bible clearly tells you something different. Taking care of the domestic church is a noble and important part of the body of Christ. You are doing God's work, even in the sometimes mundane job of Mom!
Prayer: Father in heaven, bless the work of my hands. May taking care of my family communicate your love to them. Help me to view my work as a prayer and the domestic tasks as living out my vocation. St. Dorcas, pray for me. Amen.
