On the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary

by | Sep 9, 2020 | Back-to-School, Marian | 1 comment

Bestow upon Thy servants, we beseech Thee, O Lord, the gift of Thy heavenly grace: that as the childbearing of the Blessed Virgin was the beginning of our salvation, so the solemn feast of her Nativity may bring us an increase of peace. 

Early morning Mass (for some of us), classes, then back-to-school treats, an extra decade of the rosary while lighting ten candles, and birthday cake for our dear Mother Mary! We technically started our new school year a couple weeks ago, at least most subjects-when online classes began for my high schoolers and the boys started their sophomore year at Christendom, but we officially celebrated today.

Happy Birthday, Blessed Mother!

    This is a special post. Your Birthday Cake looks delicious! I enjoy celebrating The Thirty Days of Mary each year with my husband beginning on the Feast of Our Beautiful Lady's Assumption.

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.
