A Catholic Magazine for Children

by | Jul 31, 2012 | Magazines | 8 comments

Do your children have a favorite magazine?  I’ve been meaning to share about the magazine subscription that we have for our children for awhile now, and was reminded yesterday when our Summer Issue of St. Mary’s Messenger arrived in the mail! 
St. Mary’s Messenger is a full-sized, full-color, quarterly Catholic magazine for children, ages 7 to 12, which provides children with a fun and entertaining way to learn more about their Catholic faith, Jesus, Mary and the saints!  It is an excellent magazine, and our children get excited every time it arrives in our mailbox!

Yesterday afternoon, as Captain was reading was reading the article Bear of St. Clare’s, he stopped and  said, “MOM!  I know these nuns!  There is Sister Agnes Clare, the one that always helps at Family Camp!”  It ended up being the first thing the kids showed their daddy when he arrived home from work last night!
Some of the other articles in this latest edition include:  Fun for Life (an article on raising funds for ultrasounds), a poem about The Boston Tea Party, Two Tones New Home (another story about a dog), The Pilgrimage to Santiago, Young Washington Boy Miraculously Healed by Bl. Kateri, Recipes and Games, Summer Saints, Seeds and Weeds, information on Spiritual Bouquets, and even includes a packet of wildflower seeds to plant.  It really is a wonderful magazine!
You can find out more about St. Mary’s Messenger or order a subscription here.

    I thought we had signed up to be notified when this was actually in print but this is the first I've seen of it. I'm glad they got it printed but I wish we had known sooner.

    We signed up for the magazine too, but I never heard back. I'm glad it's out, just in time for gift orders :0)

    I love the scapulars. where did you get them, re the sturdy?

    The scapular pictured was actually a gift from my brother-in-law. He gave them to all the kids last summer. I am pretty sure he picked them up at a Carmelite Convent in PA, when he was there giving a retreat. My kids are pretty hard on their scapulars, and wear them 24/7, and they seem to be holding up well!

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.
