The Extraordinary Ordinary

"Holiness is not so much about doing extraordinary things 
as it is about doing ordinary things in an extraordinary way
 with extraordinary love."
~Deacon Stephen Najarian

This is a quote from Deacon Stephen Najarian's homily today, no doubt inspired by a well known quote from Mother Theresa.   What a great thought to reflect upon.  What are the ordinary parts of my day?  Changing diapers, writing notes in clinic, taking out the trash, cleaning up toys, driving to work, mealtime with our families: each ordinary moment becomes extraordinary when we live it out with the extraordinary love of Christ.  Hallelujah.
