    praise God for your blessings– beautiful daughters, beautiful traditional form of the sacraments, traditional priest as your brother-in-law and beautiful blog to share it all.

    Wonderful to have the Tridentine Rite for First Holy Communion! Too bad so many churches no longer have communion rails… As a convert from Lutheranism, I grew up kneeling for communion – until I became Catholic! Ironic, huh? Many blessings for your girls!!!

    Congratulations to both of you girls. Really breathtaking. That moment of receiving Jesus for the first time. So precious.

    I was so surprised to see Fr. Gordon! He was the assistant priest at St. Anne's for two years. He was such a blessing to our parish community.

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.
