Feast of St. Francis of Assisi

by | Oct 4, 2008 | Feast Day Plans, Liturgical Year, St. Francis of Assisi | 1 comment

As I mentioned earlier this week, this has been a great week for celebrating the Saints. On the Calendar for today is dear St. Francis of Assisi.

To be honest, I am a bit wiped out from all the festivities, but I couldn’t let this feast pass without doing a little something in his honor.

So, today we will be:

O God, Who, by the merits of blessed Francis, didst increase Thy Church by bringing forth a new progeny, grant us to imitate him in despising earthly things and ever to rejoice in partaking of heavenly gifts.

St. Francis of Assisi ~ Pray for Us!

    We are having pizza and animal crackers too. Not homemade though. Well, the pizza isn’t entirely but the cookies are! And I hope we will be coloring some pictures although I think my kids are getting a little burned out.

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.
