Little Flowers Girls’ Club ~ Industry

by | Apr 28, 2009 | Little Flowers, Little Flowers Wreath I | 8 comments

Last Thursday we had our Little Flowers Girls’ Club meeting on St. Frances Xavier Cabrini and the virtue of Industry.

Once again, since the weather was gorgeous, I hosted the meeting at my home in the afternoon, giving the girls an opportunity to have some play time in addition to our meeting.

As usual we began our meeting with the prayer to St. Therese and the Acts of Faith, Hope, and Love. We then continued with a review of the virtue and saint we learned about at our last meeting.

I printed out Charlotte’s St. Frances Xavier Cabrini Coloring Page to color, and then be added to the girl’s notebooks.

Next I introduced the virtue we will be working on, Industry, and read a short biography of the saint for this month, St. Frances Xavier Cabrini.

Following the lesson the girls began making their notebook pages. I included the memory verse and for Industry, a short quote, and the prayer to St. Frances. Here are the links to Daffodil and the image of St. Frances that I choose, and my sample page:  (You can download my document here: Text & Mother Cabrini.)

*YES!! I spelled “Frances” incorrectly, and didn’t notice until after the meeting… Oops!

The girls have gotten so industrious at putting their pages together, and they were done in no time!

They did a lovely job as usual. Here are the completed pages:

Snack time was next. Dee Dee had snacks for this meeting, and she did a wonderful job! She made the cutest Daffodil Cupcakes using Wilton Flower Silicone Fun Cups and Charlotte’s Daffodil Cake recipe. The girls loved them!

Before the girls all headed out to the swing set to play I snapped a quick group photo. I was so excited to see that everyone remembered to wear their sashes this time!

Here are some more great resources, for learning more about St. Frances Xavier Cabrini:

Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini, pray for us that we may be industrious!

Saint Therese, the Little Flower, 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.
