This morning, inspired by a friend – who I have yet to meet, even though she met two more of my sisters today! – I turned on the rebroadcast of the Royal Wedding, and started preparing an “afternoon tea” of Crown Shaped Cookies (everyone decorated their own), Strawberry Heart Tea Sandwiches, Royal Peach Tartlets (I didn’t have any raspberry jam), and Tea. It was so much fun and the wedding was beautiful! I really had no idea that my children would enjoy watching it so much… And it was a perfect opportunity for a little impromptu History lesson!
A Royal Wedding Afternoon Tea
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.
