Our Cast of Saints ~ 2011

by | Nov 2, 2011 | Costumes | 8 comments

I had hoped to post these pictures yesterday, but our internet ended up being down, and then all the phone lines in our town and the next town over stopped working as well!   It was so strange to not having a working phone-lines (most cell phones wouldn’t even work, including my own) and I wasn’t able to check out my library books, had to pay cash for a prescription, and even the banks had limited services available!   Late last night the fiber optic cable at the phone company was repaired, and then sometime this afternoon our internet started working again!  Yay!!  The good thing is that it forced me to rest in my free time yesterday and go to bed early last night, since we were all up very late on Monday night for our party, went to Mass yesterday, and then headed back to a historical cemetery for Mass this morning.  It has been a wonderful week!  

St. Ignatius of Loyola

St. Francis Xavier
St. Catherine of Alexandria
(costume details here)

St. Lucy

St. George
St. Cecilia

St. George had so much fun with his little Baby Dragon Puppet,
 and St. Cecilia loved her little gold Harp.
Father C. didn’t even recognize Rose with the long blond hair, and asked “whose little girl is this?”  He couldn’t believe it was our Rose!  She was hysterical and just loved the wig… I didn’t think she would keep it on her head!  

I hope you all had a blessed 
All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day!

    Great costumes! Had to chuckle…when I saw the boys in their beards I thought that is a glimpse into their future and what they will look as grown men 😉 I didn't recognize Rose either! Get that rest in as much as possible.

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.
