A Meditation for Homemakers

St. Francis de Sales tells us about St. Catherine of Siena:

Her manner of meditating was as follows. While she was dressing meat for her father, she imagined she was preparing it for our Saviour, like another Saint Martha, and that her mother held the place of Our Blessed Lady, and her brothers that of the apostles, rousing herself in this manner to serve the whole court of heaven in spirit, while she employed herself with great delight in these low services because she knew such was the will of God. (174)
