I mentioned in my post Fasting and Feasting for All Hallows’ Eve, All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day that “I had also hoped to make Sugar-Candy Skulls this year, but unfortunately I never got around to ordering the supplies.”
Well, I was so surprised when a box arrived in the mail, just a few days later, filled with ready made Sugar Skulls and all the supplies we would need to decorate them! They were sent from Mary at Our Domestic Church, who I have so enjoyed getting to know through blogging.
THANK YOU MARY!
Rascal made the one with the orange feather and told me that he was a Viking. “That’s why he has a helmet on.”
Didn’t they turn out cute?! It’s pretty easy to tell which ones the girls made, and which one the boys made… The girls all added earrings to theirs! 🙂
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.
