Dear St. Anthony

by | Jun 14, 2018 | Miscarriage, St. Anthony | 4 comments

Dear St. Anthony, pray for me to the Little Jesus, 
whom thou didst hold so lovingly in thine arms. 
Obtain for me the grace to love Him with all my heart. Amen. 

It’s been four years since my last miscarriage, when we lost our baby Anthony on the feast of St. Anthony. The pain is still there, when I think about him and all of our little ones in heaven, and I never know when the tears will hit… This year’s anniversary is a little easier than some of the past thanks to our beautiful “rainbow baby” who brings so much laughter and joy to our family each and every day.  #GodisGood #miscarriagesurvivor #amothersloveisforever #rainbowafterthestorm
Happy feast of St. Anthony!

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.
