“St. Patrick was captured by some bad people. Then he was a shepherd for six years. Then escaped, but then the sailors said, “no, we won;t take you.” But when the dogs wouldn’t stop barking the captain said, “Oh, all right.” So Patrick went back home. Then he had a dream and heard “come among us again, please Patrick! please Patrick!” So he went back to Ireland to teach about Jesus. St. Patrick was also a bishop.” ~ Captain

“St. Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland. He told people about God, by using the shamrock to tell them about the Blessed Trinity. He made all the snakes go into the ocean. I like St. Patrick because I’m Irish! (big grin!) ” ~ Rascal

“I wike St. Patrick, and even I wike you! Momma, can I please do Spelling Time, cause I know what the letters are!” ~ Twinkle Toes

“This is mines. It’s St. Patrick. See the snakes, momma. I don’t like snakes.” ~ Chiquita

    Would you be willing to share the source for the St. Patrick mosaic coloring page? Thanks for your blog!

  3. Jessica Gordon

    Of course! The page comes from Fenestrae Fidei: A Coloring Companion for Catholic Mosaic, which is sold by Hillside Education.

    One of the things I *love* about this coloring book (in addition to the beautiful pictures), is that the copyright allows for making copies to use with your family!!

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.
