Our Goddaughter, MaryCatherine, WON FIRST PLACE (within her age category of 0-4) in the All Saints Day Coloring Contest at Illuminated Ink!
Didn’t she do a lovely job? I think it’s beautiful!
There is currently another contest for coloring this beautiful Christmas picture!
Now… maybe this time I will be a good mama and actually MAIL IN my kids pictures! Little do they know that their submissions to the All Saints contest are sitting here next to my computer STILL!
Prayer of Mothers
Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.
