Martin de Porres: The Rose in the Desert
Today, November 3rd, is the feast of St. Martin de Porres. After a very busy week, this momma is tired! I don’t have much planned for today, but I do have a new picture book for the children.
Martin de Porres: The Rose in the Desert, written by Gary D. Schmidt, was published earlier the year and will be a welcome addition to our ever growing collection.
You can find additional ideas for celebrating this feast day in the archives or over at Catholic Cuisine.
St. Martin de Porres, Ora pro nobis!
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.
