Happy Feast of St. James!
Today is the feast of St. James
, who happens to be one of my boys patron saints, and a favorite in our home!
For some feast day recipes, head on over to Catholic Cuisine. I posted a delicious looking recipe for Tartelettes de Saint-Jacques à la Mangue (which I am probably not going to be able to make, since we are heading to town for doctors appointments.)… However, for dessert, I will be making some Coupe Saint-Jacques and a Tarta de Santiago!
Do you have any special plans for today?
O Glorious Saint James, because of your fervor and generosity Jesus chose you to witness his glory on the Mount and his agony in the Garden. Obtain for us strength and consolation in the unending struggles of this life. Help us to follow Christ constantly and generously, to be victors over all our difficulties, and to receive the crown of glory in heaven. Amen.
St. James the Apostle ~ Pray for us!
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.
