Our Cast of Saints

by | Nov 1, 2007 | All Hallows Eve, Holidays, Saints | 6 comments

Our All Saints Party was quite a success once again! It just gets better each year! The kids all had such a wonderful time dressing up, carving pumpkins, playing games, and just having lots of fun and lots of sugar!

Saint Magnus – Earl of Orkney
Captain has wanted to be him since he first learned about him after winning a CD titled “The Last Viking” at last years party! Captain & I made the flag of the Orkney Islands to go with his costume. He is also holding an ax, since St. Magnus was killed with an ax.

Blessed Jose Luis Sanchez del Rio
This is one of Rascals favorite saints. We also learned of this saint from a CD story “My Battle Name is Jose Luis” by Glory Stories. Blessed Jose Luis was a Christero and was sentenced to death by his godfather at the young age of 14. I had been a little stressed about putting this costume together (I can’t sew and costumes have NEVER been my forte). I went to Walmart to try and find a Mexican flag. I asked the woman… and she looked at me funny and said, “Um… NO.” So I came home and saw my felt box. I started to sew, and finished by hot gluing 3 pieces of felt together and adding a picture of Our Lady of Guadalupe from one of hubby’s old t-shirts. It worked perfectly, and Rascal was THRILLED!

Saint Cecilia ~ Patron of Church Music
Twinkle Toes wanted to be St Cecilia. She loves pink, and St. Cecilia is depicted wearing pink in our Picture Book of Saints. I was trying to figure out how to come up with a miniature harp, but I was able to make one at the last minute. Doesn’t she look darling?

Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha
I had this costume I bought years ago, and it just never looked quite right on Twinkle Toes. However, Chiquita fell in love with it! She is missing her little cross in this picture, but it is still cute. She had such a great time.


Peanut didn’t dress up… It was all I could do to get the other kids costumes together… But I couldn’t leave him out of the line up… This is a picture of him with his Great Auntie. She stopped by to see the kids! I love this picture!

This last picture is of the whole group! We had a TON of wonderful costumes this year… I’m sure the Saints were smiling!

    How do you find the time?
    Great job on all the costumes
    All you kids look great.

    If you give me enough time next year, I’ll try to make them again and not so close to the wire. Twinkle toes must have been sitting on pins and needles when it arrived on the very same day.

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.
