Our Lady of Guadalupe Celebration

by | Dec 13, 2007 | Uncategorized | 1 comment

Yesterday we went to an Our Lady of Guadalupe Celebration put on by the small catholic high school that a few of my siblings attend.

It started with Mass, at which the students led the music singing beautiful Gregorian Chant hymns.

Afterwards, we went out to the school for coffee and snacks.

My boys with their uncle, my little brother.

While there, the students gave a presentation to the children about Our Lady of Guadalupe.

My sister is the second from the right.

We got to see a recent project the students did on hell. It was very interesting to hear them explain their displays. The following three were done by my siblings.

Then they had a pinata for the younger ones, which, of course, was a hit!

As well as pictures of Our Lady of Guadalupe for the kids to color.

We were even able to talk the students into singing us a few Christmas carols in Latin and Spanish.

My twin sisters are on the left and one of my brothers is on the right.

It is such a blessing to have this school available. They are offering a solid Catholic education, and have 7 teachers for the various classes, most of whom home educate their own children. It is such a blessing for these kids to be able to be receiving such a wonderful education.

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.
