The winner of the Year of the Priest Faith Folder is…

(Drumroll, please!)

Erin from

“This looks fun! I am excited about The Year of the Priest especially since my “baby” brother is a seminarian!”
(Please send me your email address and I will forward it to Lindy.)

Thank you to everyone who stopped by and left comments. I always love hearing from you all, some for the first time! 😉

For those of you who did not win, you have till Sunday to leave a comment over at Mary Ellen’s blog for yet another chance to win this Lap Book, or for only $7.99 you can support Faith Folders for Catholics and purchase a copy yourself! (If Lindy hadn’t generously shared one with my family for hosting the give-away, I would have definitely purchased it anyway!)

Oh, and can I ask you all a favor? Someone very dear to me could really use prayers this weekend. Could you please say a Memorare for a special intention? Thank you!

I hope you all have a very Happy 4th of July!
May God bless America this Independence Day!

    Belated greetings!
    I spent the 4th July in Dublin. I attended the All Ireland Rally for Life which saw over 2,000 people march to the Irish parliament.

    The Irish media have ignored this event.

    Thank you everyone!

    CP ~ That is so sad to hear that the Irish Media ignored the Rally for Life. What a great turnout! Keep up the good work!

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.
