November 3rd – Feast of St. Martin de Porres

St. Martin always preached, “Love every creature that you meet.” 
So when he found sick animals, he saved them off the street. 
Crunch! Crunch! Crunch! 
You could hear him walking by, 
Whether mice, cats, dogs, or donkeys: none he would deny.

Today is the last day to enter the giveaway for a chance to win a copy of Saints on the Go! along with three of the Shining Light Dolls featured in the book: Saint Martin de Porres, Saint Teresa of Calcutta, and Saint Padre PioYou can enter the giveaway here!

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.
