Looking Back

“Baptism is the sacrament that gives our souls the new life of sanctifying grace by which we become Christians, children of God, and heirs of heaven.” ~ My Catholic Faith

My (super tall) brother Sean/Altar Boy, Hubby’s Brother/Deacon (now Father),
Twinkle Toes and her Godparents


It was five years ago today, when my hubby’s oldest brother, who had recently been ordained a Deacon with the FSSP, performed his very first baptism ever on our daughter, Twinkle Toes. It was one of my first introductions to the Traditional Rite, and it was absolutely beautiful!

It has been such a blessing to have our last three children baptized by their uncles! In fact, on occasion, I am asked by friends, if we could hurry up and have another baby, just so they can attend a Latin Mass once again! 😉 (It’s pretty sad that it takes having a baby–or an occasional visit from my bil’s–to be able to attend this mass, but such is the case, at least in our diocese.)

Happy Baptismal Day Twinkle Toes!!!

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.
