In Honor of Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha

by | Jul 3, 2009 | Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha, St. Kateri Tekakwitha, Summer with the Saints | 3 comments

Yesterday afternoon, despite the heat, we headed back to Marci’s home for another:

Summer with the Saints

This week she had decided to feature Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha, whose feast day is coming up on July 14th. Here is an overview of our afternoon:

~ Coloring Pictures ~

Marci had this picture available for the children to color. She also read them the short story from the coloring page in addition to Father Lovasik’s Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha.

~ Making Holy Cards ~

~ Craft Time ~

Making Cross Necklaces

~ Snack Time ~

While the children were coloring, Marci had trail mix on the tables for them to snack on. Can you tell which bowl was on their table! 😉

After the crafts were done we headed inside (it had to be around 100 degrees yesterday afternoon?) to decorate cupcakes with candy corn.

O God who, among the many marvels of Your Grace in the New World, did cause to blossom on the banks of the Mohawk and of the Saint Lawrence, the pure and tender Lily, Kateri Tekakwitha, grant we beseech You, the favor we beg through her intercession; that this Young Lover of Jesus and of His Cross may soon be counted among her Saints by Holy Mother Church, and that our hearts may be enkindled with a stronger desire to imitate her innocence and faith. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha, pray for us!

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.
