On Rose Sunday

by | Mar 14, 2010 | Contests, Giveaway, Prayer Request | 1 comment

I hope you are all having a blessed Laetare Sunday!

We just arrived home from Mass with coffee and a box full of donuts.  Yum!    The girls and I considered baking a Simnel Cake today, but opted to spend the afternoon making either a Strawberry Brownie Shortcake or Sunflower Cupcakes instead, as we slowly make our way through “S” Week.

Anyhow, I am just popping in to announce the winner of our recent giveaway!

Congratulations to . . . Jenny!

I will mail the Vessels & Vestments game and little St. Therese doll just as soon as I receive your mailing address.  ðŸ™‚

Thank you all for taking the time to check out Catholic Artworks and share your favorite products.  I really enjoyed hearing from all of you!

Before I go, can I ask you all to say a quick prayer for my Grandfather?  It has been one year today since he passed away, and we miss him dearly.  Thank you!

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord. And let perpetual light shine upon him. 
May his soul, and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

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.
