Last year I ordered Lucia, Saint of Light to give to our little Chiquita on the feast of St. Lucy. Since it was backordered, and didn’t arrive on time, I saved it to give her this year instead. Though we had listened to the audio version of this book before, the illustrations in the book are lovely! I just realized that the link I included to the audio download in Ideas for Celebrating St. Lucia Day! was incorrect. I updated the link, but thought I would post it for you here as well, just in case any of you would like to listen to it today:

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.
