.: St. Maximilian Kolbe & St. Augustine :.
Like last year
, the boys decided to wear “saintly” t-shirts representing their confirmation saints
! Captain (17) is wearing his St. Maximilian t-shirt that he received at the beginning of this school year and Ranger (15) is wearing his brand new St. Augustine t-shirt that arrived in the most recent box from Catholic T-Shirt Club
last week! Perfect timing!!
.: Our Lady of Fatima :.
Sister Lucia and Saints Jacinta & Francisco
Twinkle Toes (14) as Our Lady of Fatima, Bud (age 5) as St. Francisco, Chiquita (age 12) as Sister Lucia, and Rose (age 7) as St. Jacinta
Three of the girls convinced their youngest brother to dress up as St. Francisco to go along with their costumes. They were inspired by the 100th Anniversary of the Apparitions
and the canonizations of Francisco and Jacinta earlier this year!
.: St. Francis Xavier :.
Snuggles (age 10) as St. Francis Xavier
.: Our Lady of Guadalupe :.
Grace (4 months) as Our Lady of Guadalupe
Happy Feast of All Saints!
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.
