On the Feast of St. Maximilian Kolbe

by | Aug 15, 2009 | Kids Artwork, Liturgical Year, Saints | 2 comments

Today, August 14th, is the feast of St. Maximilian Kolbe.

After dinner this evening my children asked to listen to The Knight and Our Lady! The Story of St. Maximilian Kolbe while coloring Charlotte’s wonderful coloring page.

They also asked me to post their finished pictures for you all to see:

Left:  by Captain (age 9)  Right:  by Rascal (age 7) 

Left:  by Twinkle Toes (age 5)  Right:  by Chiquita (age 4)

In the meantime, also inspired by Charlotte, I tried making some St. Max’s Candy for dessert.

I ended up using pecans, since that is what I had in the freezer.  The candy didn’t turn out anywhere near as pretty as Charlotte’s, but I do have the same china and my children thought the candy was delicious!
Thank you Charlotte!!!

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.
