Life is the Most Beautiful Gift of God

by | Jan 15, 2018 | Archbishop, Catholic T-Shirts, Pro-Life | 5 comments


Our oldest son was invited to attend the Archbishop’s Discernment Retreat this past weekend. He ended up making the trip with a few local friends who were also attending the retreat. He made sure to pack along the latest t-shirt from our subscription to wear to the 2018 Roe v. Wade Memorial and March in Portland following the retreat. I was so excited to get a text/picture from friends who ran into him at the March for Life! He had a wonderful weekend and got back home safely late last night.

From the archives: Culture of Life Studies Pro-Life Prints is a fun and engaging hands-on way to teach children more about the dignity of every human life!

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.
