A House Divided…

by | Mar 24, 2015 | Archbishop, Latin Mass, Sermons | 6 comments

Here is another inspiring sermon, all about the need for unity in our Church, which was recently given by our Archbishop during the 2015 Gregorian Chant conference on March 7, 2015 at the Brigittine Monastery in Amity, Oregon.  

Note: You can view the rest of the photos from this Mass here. The video and photographs were taken and edited by our friend Marc Salvatore and posted with permission. Thank you Marc!

In other news, the Cathedral Parish of the Diocese of Santa Rosa in California is currently raising money for a sanctuary renovation. It looks like it is going to be beautiful! You can find all the details here along with a link to their Go-Fund Me page.

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.
