Our Lenten Journey Day Twenty-Five

Today is the feast of the Annunciation.

Meditate on the Blessed Virgin Mary's practice of hard work. Like most women of her time, she had to make all of her food from scratch, draw water from a well, and wash her family's clothing by hand. However her primary job was to care for Jesus throughout His life. taught Him to walk, eat, get dressed, say His prayers, etc.. After Jesus died, she took care of His body and made sure that He was cleaned and entombed properly.

Help with your  mother's chores for today .
