In Honor of Our Lady of Fatima

by | May 14, 2009 | Liturgical Year, Marian, Our Lady of Fatima | 7 comments

We had a fun afternoon yesterday, celebrating the feast of Our Lady of FatimaFirst 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!

    Jumped over here from Pinterest. WHERE did you get that coloring book. I had that as a child about 30 years ago! Also, I assume that you like that series of Saint movies. I've been tempted to get them for my children, but I read some reviews that weren't so great. I totally trust your opinion. What ages? Thanks!! Need to get things in order for the 13th!

    It is a gorgeous coloring book, isn't it?! I am pretty sure that our copy was given to us by my Mother-in-Law (who runs a Catholic Book Store) but I could be wrong – it could have been from one of the children's godparents… I don't remember purchasing it myself… My copy was published in 1987 and I did a search over at Amazon with the ISBN number and found this product page. I hope that helps!

    And, yes, I do love the CCC Saint movies, but I grew up watching them, so perhaps I am a bit bias? This is one of my favorites, in addition to Nicholas: The Boy who became Santa; Francis the Knight of Assisi; and Bernadette – The Princess of Lourdes. Ages 3-10 or so, though my 11 year old will still watch them… I guess it would depend on the child.

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.
