Our Santa Lucia’s Braided Bread
turned out delicious, the girls looked darling in their nightgowns and crowns
, and they really enjoyed “waking” the (very awake yet cooperative)
boys. Although it has already melted, we even woke up to our very first snowfall
I’ve been busily painting more Wooden Saints (I need to hurry, since I would like to give the whole set to the girls with their Christmas Present)
, Snuggles is sleeping, and the rest of our kiddos are playing board games with their daddy. I love Saturdays!!!
So, what are you up to this weekend?
O glorious Santa Lucia, who combined the profession of faith with the glory of martyrdom, help us to openly profess the truths of the Gospel and to walk in faith according to the teachings of our Savior.
Oh Virgin of Syracuse, be thou the light in our life and the model for our actions so that, after following in thy footsteps here on earth, we can rejoice together with thee in the vision of our Lord. Amen.
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.
