The Holy Sacrifice

by | Feb 19, 2009 | First Communion, Home Videos, Videos | 14 comments

Our friend Marc has just created another beautiful video titled The Holy Sacrifice. He has put together a series of images and video set to the hymn “Pange Lingua Gloriosi Corporis Mysterium” by St. Thomas Aquinas.

I may be just a tiny bit partial since all of the priests pictured in the Consecration photos are very dear to us (plus he even included the picture of our oldest son just before he received his First Holy Communion!), but isn’t it wonderful?!?

    Thank you everyone!! ♥

    Erin, yes he one of the priests pictured!!! =) So is the priest that married hubby & I, the priest that my boys serve Mass for on Fridays, and hubby's 3 brothers who are all priests with the FSSP.

    I thought so!! Wow, 3 brothers that are priests…that is amazing!

    It is pretty amazing, isn’t it?!
    Especially since there are only 5 children in hubby’s family–1 girl, followed by 4 boys) They are all such wonderful priests, and SUCH a blessing to us!

    Our family’s big day is set for Pentecost Sunday. The boys will be baptized, the older children and Tim and I will have our first Eucharist. It is hard to wait! 🙂

    It is much like the wafting scent of a rose that comes and goes! So calming, so peaceful, so indescribable really. Not to mention how truly blessed you all are! Thank you for sharing it!

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.
