In Honor of St. Francis of Assisi

by | Jun 30, 2009 | St. Francis of Assisi, Summer with the Saints | 2 comments

Last Wednesday we went to Marci’s home for:

Summer with the Saints

She had decided to feature St. Francis of Assisi this time and the children all had a wonderful time! Here is an overview of our afternoon:

~ Coloring Pictures ~

Marci had this picture available for the children to color. I also love the one by Charlotte and the ones found in this book.

~ Making Holy Cards ~

~ Craft Time ~

~ Snack Time ~

Snacks were simple this week: Cookies, Raisins, and Punch. It made me laugh when Rascal said, “Look Mom! I made a smiley face with dried up lips!”

~ Group Photo ~

When we came home my children pulled out all of our books about St. Francis and we’ve been looking through them all week. I also keep getting asked if we can make some more Wolf Paw Cookies!

We have plenty to keep us busy for a few days:

St. Francis of Assisi ~ Pray for Us!

    Looks like it was a blast! I wish we could have gone. I know Daisy would have rather been there than getting that tooth pulled!!!

    Cute! The dried up lips thing made me laugh out loud. St. Francis of Assisi reminds me of a pretty little Tridentine parish in our city. 😉

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.
