Ave, Ave, Ave Maria!

Hail, Refuge of sinners! Hail, Star of the Sea! 
Hail, Queen of Creation! Our hope is in thee.
All hail, Virgin Mary! This Star guides our way, 
our country’s Protectress, America’s Way!

“Whether the world has war or peace depends on the practice of this devotion, along with the consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. This is why I desire its propagation so ardently, especially because this is also the will of our dear Mother in Heaven.” -Sr. Lucy (March 19, 1939)

In his sermon during Mass, Father explained the devotion and how each of the five Saturdays are acts of reparation for the five ways that people offend and blaspheme against the Immaculate Heart of Mary. You can more about it here: https://www.bluearmy.com/first-saturday-devotion/

    I love seeing these pictures! You look so free! No masks and no social distancing! We need to move to your state! We haven't been to mass in months because of the mask requirements. We live in Texas.

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.
