Here's the start...
Why do we do this each week? What does all this recounting of rosaries and bedtimes, cleaned closets and date nights add up to? It adds up to witnessing. One of the big problems with Catholicism lived is it does not make the news. A woman feeding their children, caring for their home, romancing their husband, this is what we hope should be the norm. It does not impress to do these things because it should be the baseline. To do what is holy is to become it, and as St. Teresa of Avila said, “God is in the pots and pans.” He must want to spend a lot of time with me, because there are always dishes.
However, given the nature of our nature (fallen), what we aspire to do as ordinary, is in fact, extraordinary. It is holy.
There's more, so go and read and participate, even if it's just in the comment section. :)
