In your charity, would you please offer a prayer for the soul of my dear mother-in-law, Luz Beatriz Gordon, who passed away on Wednesday evening, August 28th, and for our whole Gordon family…

April 2018 – A couple photos from our trip to Arizona to introduce “Grace” to her grandmother.
It’s been just over two years since my father-in-law passed away the day before I went into labor.
Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord, and let 
Perpetual light shine upon her.
May she rest in peace.
May her soul, and the souls of all the faithful departed,
through the mercy of God rest in peace. Amen.

    I offered a prayer for her. The tradition came to mind where the mother of a priest receives the cloth with which he wiped his anointed hands, to "show St. Peter." She must have three to present! So very sorry for your family's loss!

    Hugs! Will keep her and your family in prayer. What a perfect name. Luz-light! What a light of love she is in those photos and to each of you in your memories! A friend of mine had some Gregorian masses said for her mother after she died. Is this something your family does, too? I would love to do this for my dad. Do you know of anyone who offers this with the traditional Latin mass?

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.
