… arrived in the mail this afternoon, on the first of two very special days! I love the little ways in which the Holy Spirit is always working in our lives. 
God is good… all the time! 

Note: The author of this book, who kindly and generously gifted me with a copy of Saint Christopher following my post about their Saint Catherine of Alexandria book, has offered a special to my visitors here at Shower of Roses. If you would like to order any of the books from Potamatis Publishing, they will refund 10% and ship the books at no charge! Just mention that you “found them from Shower of Roses!”

    I received a special book today in the mail too!! It brought tears to my eyes, just reading the title!! I'd never heard of it. Beautiful book. Thank you so very much Jessica!! God bless you.

  2. Nicole Bradica

    Many prayers for you and your family as you celebrate your saints in heaven. God Bless you.

  3. Barbara

    God constantly blesses us with little miracles, we have but to notice them!

  4. Cheryl

    They have some beautiful publications on hard-to-find saints. We have the booklet The Story of the Vasilopita (St. Basil) which I like to read on the feast of St. Basil(January 2). It is small–a nice stocking stuffer or little gift for the "12 Days of Christmas." "The Nativity of Christ" and "The Gifts of the Magi" are also beautiful little booklets and nice stocking stuffers. I like to use the booklets to teach kids about "reading icons."

    The candle is actually the one that you sent to us! I love it!! And I found the "candle sleeve" while I was out shopping the other day. 🙂

  6. Jessica Gordon

    Thank you! May God bless you and your family too!

  7. Jessica Gordon

    I'm so glad it arrived, and I was more than happy to send it to you! It's perfect for your precious little man! 🙂

  8. Jessica Gordon

    Thank you for the suggestions! I will have to look into them.

  9. Jocelyn

    Where's the "like" button? 🙂

    What age would you say this book is geared to? Would it be a good read aloud book for preschool/kindergarten age? I am looking for a good St. Christopher book for my boys to help them learn about the saint we will be asking to watch over their daddy while he.is deployed.

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.
