On the Feast of St. Anne

by | Jul 27, 2010 | All Saints Day, Feast Day Plans, St. Anne | 2 comments

We colored a beautiful picture

… ate a delicious Watermelon Pie


… won a gorgeous “St. Anne” Rosary (Thank you Anne!!!!)…

… read a lovely short story, and prayed for the intercession of this beloved saint.
Good Saint Anne, you were especially favoured by God to be the mother of the most holy Virgin Mary, and thus grandmother of our Saviour Jesus Christ.  By your intimacy with your most pure daughter and her divine Son, kindly obtain for us the graces that we seek.  Secure for us the strength to perform faithfully our daily duties and the help we need to persevere in the love of Jesus and Mary.  Amen.

I hope you all had a very blessed feast of St. Anne!

    Congratulations on winning one of Anne's beautiful rosaries! We own a few of her exquisite chaplets. 🙂

    And this is the third time I've seen this statue of St. Anne in a blog post! I just ordered it from an online store yesterday and can't wait for it to come in. Hooray for early birthday money! 😉

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.
