#MyMassTakeaway for Third Sunday of Easter.
Why don’t I get Sunday rest?
Monday through Saturday, I work. I feed and dress kids, teach them school, prepare their meals, and clean up their messes.
Laundry, dishes, cooking, cleaning – they’re all my responsibility.
Sunday comes around. The “day of rest.”
I wake up in the morning.
I get the kids dressed.
Load them in the car, bring them to Mass, wrangle the baby the whole time, come home, make breakfast, wash the dishes, pick up stray laundry, make lunch, prepare for the next school week, make dinner, brush teeth, tidy the kitchen, plop into bed exhausted.
Where’s my Sunday rest?
Several years ago, I complained about this dilemma to my confessor.
