On the Last Sunday of the Liturgical Year

“We must live in this world, as if our spirits were in Heaven and our bodies in the tomb. We must live a dying life and die a living and life-giving death, in the life of our King and sweetest Savior.” – St. Francis de Sales

    When I realized it was the Feast of Christ the King today, I thought to myself, I'll bet Jessica's family made a beautiful Crown Cake to celebrate! I dream of getting that awesome cake pan one day 😉 Happy Feast Day

    I'm curious how you are able to explain or celebrate or whatever I'm trying to say (non sleeping baby brain here!) with both the old and the new calendar? We have been attending an FSSP parish for about a year now, and sometimes attending our local diocesan parish. I realized yesterday (we had planned to go to FSSP) that on the old calendar feast of Christ the King we were at the local parish, and so if we didn't go to the local parish yesterday we would have not gotten to celebrate the Christ the King Mass, so we changed our plans to the local parish. Do you just go ahead and celebrate both calendars? Any wisdom you have for me would be appreciated !

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.
