On the Feast of St. Cecilia :: A Sweet and Simple Treat
Let the deep organ swell the lay,
In honor of this festive day.
Let the harmonious choirs proclaim,
Cecilia’s ever blessed name.
Can You Find Saint Cecilia?
The dresses arrived this week from Sew Sweet by Shannon
and were sent as samples – along with some adorable Felt Breakfast Food
– for hosting a giveaway here at Shower of Roses! (Thank you Shannon!)
Shannon is a 17 year old Catholic homeschool graduate who recently opened her shop over at Etsy! She offers modest clothing for girls
, lovely tote bags
, and much more
! I immediately fell in love with all the beautiful and well-made items she sent and am already considering another dress for Rose (maybe in green?)
and a couple of her tote bags
for myself and oldest daughter.
Sew Sweet by Shannon has generously offered the following two prizes to the visitors here at Shower of Roses!
Please enter the giveaway below:
Cecilia with a two-fold crown,
Adorned in heaven we pray look down,
Upon thy fervent children here
And harken to their humble prayer.
Sancta Cecilia, 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.
