Plans for the Feast of St. Teresa of Avila
Last month while I was looking for ideas to celebrate the feast of St. Therese of Lisieux, I ran across a darling St. Teresa of Avila Paper Doll.
UPDATE: Thanks to a reader, here is a new link for the paper doll!
Since St. Teresa of Avila’s feast is celebrated tomorrow, October 15th, I printed the paper doll out onto card stock for my girls. I’m so excited to give it to them… They are going to love it!
Oh! Also in honor of St. Teresa, I am planning on making Pan de Santa Teresa (St. Teresa’s Bread) for breakfast. I just posted the recipe over at Catholic Cuisine. It sounds very yummy and fairly simple… Right now, simple is good! 🙂
Oh my Lord! How true it is that whoever works for you is paid in troubles! And what a precious price to those who love you if we understand its value. ~ Saint Teresa of Avila
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.
