The Easter Book by Rev. Francis X. Weiser

I love my out-of-print copy of The Easter Book by Father Weiser and am so happy to see that it has just been reprinted by St. Augustine Academy Press!

“If you enjoyed learning about holiday traditions in The Christmas Book, you are sure to love its sequel, The Easter Book. Father Weiser has here applied his winning formula to an explanation of the fasts and feasts of the Lenten and Easter seasons with equally fascinating results.”
Chapters Include: Introduction/The First Easter, Man and Nature, Farewell to Alleluia, Pre-Lent and Carnival, Sackcloth and Ashes, The Great Fast, Customs of Lent, Passiontide, Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday, The Feast of Feasts, Easter Sunday, Easter Hymns and Music, Easter Symbols and Foods, and The Easter Season.

Another BRAND NEW release from St. Augustine Academy Press is the Religion in Life Curriculum to go along with The Highway to Heaven series which I’ve blogged about in the past here. At this point we only own a copy of Practical Problems in Religion, but I am looking forward to adding the rest of these books to our home library.

“Developed in the 1930s by the Marquette Institute of Catechetical Research, the Religion in Life Curriculum is more than just a Teacher’s Manual for use with its accompanying textbook series, The Highway to Heaven. It lays out an entire Religion Curriculum that includes music, art, reading and classroom activities.”

Here is a peek at what we are studying this week: The Crucifixion in Highway to God Book 7/8 and my 7th Grader and I are reviewing the answers to the “Problem Questions” found in Practical Problems in Religion.

.: Giveaway :. 
The publisher has generously offered to send a copy of The Easter Book along with the whole set of Religion in Life Curriculum Teacher’s Manuals to one of my visitors here at Shower of Roses! 
(Giveaway closes on April 3rd. Winner will be announced in this post on April 4, 2018)

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.
