Here are a few more pictures (actually they are “video stills”) from our friend Marc, taken at the beautiful Mass at a local cemetery for the Holy Souls.  Thank you Marc!

    This is such a beautiful idea. I so wish they did something like this here. Thanks for sharing.

    Just curious what books your girls are holding… they look like Fr. Lovasik illustrations, but they appear to be more nicely-bound! I have been looking for a children's missal that is good for pre-reading aged children but most seem to be on a bit of a higher level…

    Mass in the cemetery for All Souls Day is a beautiful idea!!

    It really is neat! It wasn't that many years ago, when the cemetery was clearing out lots of overgrown blackberry bushes, that they uncovered the Catholic section of this cemetery, including an old altar!!

    On the Friday prior to All Souls, Father commented on the forecast (rain again) and wondered if we would be able to have Mass. I had to remind him that rain is forecasted EVERY year on All Souls, and it ALWAYS stops long enough for him to offer Mass at 10am. He smiled. =)

    Erin ~ The missals the girls have are actually very old missals given to the children by one of their uncles. They are beautiful, but I have not been able to find any like them…

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.
