All [the laity's] works, prayers, and apostolic undertakings, family and married life, daily work, relaxation of mind and body, if they are accomplished in the Spirit...all these become spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
- CCC No. 901
Reflection: Catholics learn from an early age to "offer up" their trials and sufferings, but in truth, every action of our lives can and should be "offered up" to God.
Prayer: Father, may every area of our lives be a pleasing sacrifice to you.
