Celebrating Michaelmas

by | Sep 30, 2015 | Angels, Michaelmas, St. Michael | 0 comments

Angel of peace! come, Michael, to our aid, 
Thou who didst once chase discord from the sky; 
Come, calm those boisterous passions that have made 
Such havoc here as they have made on high; 
Drive strife and rancor to their kindred gloom, 
To Hell, their fitting, their eternal tomb.
Spirit of might! O Gabriel, display 
Thy matchless power against our ancient foes. 
Visit those sacred temples where we pray—– 
‘Twas at thy potent word those temples rose; 
Whose worship raised these shrines throughout the earth; 
Thou wert the herald of His future birth.
And Raphael! of the glorious seven who stand
Before the throne of Him Who lives and reigns; 
Angel of health! the Lord hath filled thy hand 
With balm from Heaven to soothe or cure our pains, 
Heal or console the victim of disease, 
And guide our steps when doubtful of our ways.
Michaelmas Cupcakes, Garlic Angel Hair (served with AIP Steak, Sautéed Greens and Carrots), Sparkling Blackberry IZZE drinks, and a little gift for a special boy…
Happy Michaelmas!

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.
