Remembering My Primary Vocation

"...We must go out and spread the Gospel and the light of Christ with the world. We can't just hide the light under a bushel, and fool ourselves into thinking that suffices for our Christian obligation ... The more I thought about the message, one question kept nagging at me - with the emphasis on "doing unto others," so strong, how many of us are taking a moment to recognize what we are doing to those closest to us?" The thoughts nagging at me from this past weekend's homily lead me to reflect on my primary vocation as wife, and how I need to be the light of Christ not just to those outside my home, but also extend that light to those closest to me - particularly in my vocation as wife.
