Happy Santa Lucia Day!

Our morning got off to a rough start for a number of reasons, but after a quick trip to town for donuts sweet rolls and a BIG mocha for me, the day got much better! Twinkle Toes was so excited to wear her Santa Lucia crown and serve our teatime snack.


All the children really enjoyed the special treat.


We read Hanna’s Christmas which we happened to run across at the library. It was such a darling book, and I highly recommend it!! (That is, if can find it at your library, since it is out of print, and quite expensive.) The kids did a bit of copywork and colored the beautiful picture of St. Lucy found in Fenestrae Fidei. This is our FAVORITE coloring book. The kids all love coloring pictures from it, plus I LOVE that you are allowed to copy pages for use within your family. (A HUGE plus in my book!)

  We are adding these colorings along with the ones for our Jesse Tree to our New Liturgical Year notebooks! Did Captain do a nice job? And I just have to share one more picture… I know, your thinking, enough already! But here is one last one of Chiquita trying on the Santa Lucia Crown…
  Next year I think I will definitely be making two! Oh! And if you have a second… Click here, here and here to see todays Santa Lucia posts from a few of my favorite blogs! I just love the Catholic Church and it’s many traditions!

Relying on Your goodness, O God, we humbly ask you, by the intercession of your servant, Saint Lucy, to give perfect vision to our eyes, that we may serve for your greater honor and glory. And we pray for the salvation of our souls in this world, that we may come to the enjoyment of the unfailing light of the Lamb of God in heaven.

St. Lucy, virgin and martyr, hear our prayers and answer our petitions.

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.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
