In Honor of Our Lady of Fatima
We had a fun afternoon yesterday, celebrating the feast of Our Lady of Fatima. First we watched The Day the Sun Danced: The True Story Of Fatima while I baked some mini Dancing Sun Cupcakes. After that I read my children the story of Our Lady of Fatima by Father Lovasik, while they colored this beautiful coloring page.
After that, I gave in and let them watch one more movie, The Miracle of Our Lady of Fatima, so I could get back to my book!! 😉 Which, I might add, I started and FINISHED yesterday — that is, if 2am this morning counts as yesterday! I’ve been totally hooked to this series!
I hope you all had a lovely feast of Our Lady of Fatima!
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.
