Recent Talk on the Liturgy from our Archbishop

by | Nov 15, 2015 | Altar Boys, Archbishop, Latin Mass | 2 comments

I’ll be back soon with this year’s Advent Book Basket and Printable Labels. In the meantime, I wanted to share the recent talk on the liturgy that was given by our Archbishop. It’s long and I haven’t had the time to listen to the whole thing yet, but from what I hear (my husband has already listened to all of it) it is great!

From Instagram – Nov. 8th
Speaking of the liturgy, once every two months, if we can find a priest willing to travel to our parish, we are blessed with a Mass offered in the Extraordinary Form. Our November Mass was last weekend! (Our recent All Souls Mass was Novus Ordo, celebrated Ad Orientum.)  Our older boys did an excellent job serving, my husband’s choir sounded beautiful, and the Church was full! We are so grateful to our pastor and to all the priests who have been offering this for us the past couple years. 
Our friend Marc, who filmed and edited the above video, sent us a few more pictures of ours boys serving! Thank you, Marc! 

“The secret of happiness is to live moment by moment and to thank God for all that He, in His goodness, sends to us day after day.” 
– St. Gianna Beretta Molla

    I love how Archbishop Sample is celebrating the mass Ad Orientum. It is encouraging to our priests. We've been blessed for the last two years to have our mass celebrated this way. We are so blessed to have Archbishop Sample shepherding our diocese. Thanks for the post.

    "Lex Orandi; Lex credendi." "How we pray is how be believe." These are important words to think about in light of the last 50 years….

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.
