I wanted to let you all know about my new recipe blog :

So far I have a wonderful group of women who will be contributing “Recipes for Celebrating the Feasts and Seasons of the Liturgical Year.”

“For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what has been planted…a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance…” – Ecclesiastes 3:1-4. Likewise, there is a time for fasting and a time for feasting. In our culture of immediate gratification, many have lost sight of the importance of seasons. For Catholics, the observance of the different seasons and feast days as proclaimed by Holy Mother Church is essential to restoring the proper and holy rhythm of the liturgical year. Catholic Culture

Mealtime provides a great opportunity for observing these different seasons and feasts of the Catholic Church in our homes, the “Domestic Church.” I just love finding fun recipes to use for our meals as well as for our afternoon craft & snack times! Us moms are cooking and baking every day, why not sanctify these mealtimes and teach our children even more about their faith at the same time!?!

Don’t miss Meredith’s post for making Crepes for the Feast of St. Bernadette, which is TOMORROW!!! Thank you Meredith!!

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.
