Reflection Quotes:

“My mother’s mother, my abuelita Amada, worked for nearly two decades as a live-in housekeeper and nanny…While housekeeping isn’t a job anyone in the United States particularly dreams of doing…I imagine her there in that Los Angeles mansion, ordering that family’s universe: sorting laundry like darkness and light, bringing order and routine to children’s schedules, taking strange American ingredients and creating nourishing meals and healthy snacks, calling them into being. She understood something that for years I’ve struggled to understand: all work has meaning, and all work has dignity. Her work meant something because it reflected the working God who created her.” Karen Gonzalez, “The God Who Sees”

“Our sanctification does not depend upon changing our works, but in doing that for God’s sake which we commonly do for our own.” Brother Lawrence
