Shower of Photos 2009 :: Day 5 (Palm Sunday)

Our “Palm of Palms”

Using an idea from The Big Book of Catholic Customs and Traditions for Children’s Faith Formation, we made a palm branch using all the palms in our family and hung it on the sliding door in the kitchen. As you can see in the picture, it is an absolutely gorgeous day today so we are headed outside to BBQ and enjoy the sun, before the rain returns in a couple days. I hope you all are having a very blessed Palm Sunday!

O Almighty and everlasting God, Who didst cause our Savior to take upon Him our flesh and to undergo the cross, for an example of humility to be imitated by mankind: mercifully grant that we may deserve to possess not only the lesson of His patience, but also the fellowship of His Resurrection.

    This is a great visual reminder for your children. Don't forget to save the handprints afterwards because they grow all too quickly and these are perfect for a scrapbook later on. <3

    What a wonderful craft for Palm Sunday! I will have to print this and put it in my notebook for next year.

    You do an amazing job with your family. I am just discovering you and love all your stuff. I wanted to let you know, too, that I linked to the Catholic Cuisine site from mine. It’s a great fit with my mission. I couldn’t get the widget to work with WordPress, unfortunately. Thank you for all the good “keeping it holy” ideas for kids! If only I could find time to DO some of them!

    Have a Blessed Holy Week! Lori

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.
