I had really hoped to post something relating to guardian angels since today is the feast of guardian angels. However, most of the tidbits I found about angels were a little too schmoozy for my taste. So you get a good quote from my patron saint, St. Frances of Rome. She was especially close to her guardian angel who would light her path so she could tend to the poor. For this reason she is patroness of motorists.
Her quote seems very fitting to our week here. I missed Mass last Sunday because of JuJu's emergency room visit (a very, very rare occurrence for me). Since then I have wanted to attend daily Mass each day. This hasn't been possible because each girl has successively come down with this bug. Today is first Friday and a feast, and I am afraid we won't make it to Mass. Banana is going to have to go to the doctor for a strep test.
“It is most laudible in a married woman to be devout, but she must never forget that she is a housewife and sometimes must leave God at the altar to find him in housekeeping.” ~ St. Frances of Rome
And just so I am not entirely neglectful of today's feast, this little quote made me smile after a long week of tending to sick children:
"The reason angels can fly is because they take themselves lightly." ~G.K. Chesterton, "Orthodoxy"
