Happy Lætare Sunday!

Rejoice with Jerusalem and be glad for her, all you who love her… 

This Sunday is traditionally called Lætare Sunday from the opening words of the Entrance Antiphon.  Today the strictness of the Lenten liturgy is interrupted with words that speak to us of joy!

After dinner we will be enJOYing a Strawberry Boston Cream Cake that we picked up on the way home from Mass. However, if I had seen Charlotte’s post earlier, I would have opted for Laetare Sundaes!  We might just have to make some to go along with the cake.  I also better call up a couple of my siblings to see if anyone wants to stop by. . . We opted for a small cake, but I want to make sure we don’t end up with any leftovers!  🙂

I pray that you are all filled with JOY on this beautiful Lætare Sunday!

    We actually enjoyed our sundaes last night and attended the re-dedication of our organ concert (along with harp, flute, and clarinets!) tonight. I took my girls and it was such a wonderful evening!

    praise God for your JOYfilled day and dessert.

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.
