…with prayers for dear Margaret and her sweet family!

Mother of Sorrows ~ Pray for us!


  1. Christine

    Beautiful. Prayers for Margaret. All of us are so sad.

  2. Margaret

    So sorry to hear about your friend. I lost a baby at 9 weeks. Very similar story.

    My prayers are with her. I have felt that emptiness before, only time can help the healing. I am so sad for her.

    Thank you for your sweet intercession, Jessica! Even before I saw this kind post, I was thinking of our beloved Thérèse and how very hard it must have been for her sisters to see her die at so young an age. It would have been easy to question the wisdom and the will of God but now we see what a perfect gift her life was, even cut short as it was.

    This is what I am trying to do–have faith in an event that I don’t understand. It does not “make sense” to lose four children in a row, but God’s ways are not our ways.

    May God bless you & yours. This is a beautiful website.

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.

Our Family

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.
