Just look at that smile!

Along with his blessing, this holy man of God also gave our baby a 2nd class relic of St. John Paul II!

    What a wonderful blessing! We met Cardinal Burke last year, and he was so kind and wonderful. His homily was excellent and inspiring. We are all blessed to have him. I pray for him often!

    My jaw just dropped to the floor! What an incredible honor to meet this holy cardinal AND to be given a second class relic of a wonderful saint! I have a very pious jealousy of you right now (is that even possible?! Lol!) God bless your little one, and your family, on this very special occasion. I'm so very glad that God's blessing your family in such miraculous ways.♥♥♥

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.
