Celebrating Michaelmas

by | Sep 30, 2020 | Angels, Feast Day Plans, Michaelmas, St. Michael | 2 comments


Michael, prince of all the angels, While your legions fill the sky, 

All victorious over Satan, Lift your flaming sword on high; 
Shout to all the seas and heavens: Now the morning is begun; 
Now is rescued from the dragon She whose garment is the sun!

I tried adapting our Michaelmas Blackberry Cobbler recipe using Cassava Flour and Coconut Sugar… 
Didn’t turn out wonderful but I enjoyed having a refined sugar-free treat!
St. Raphael, St. Michael and St. Gabriel from Naturally CatholicOstheimer Dragon
St. Michael Saints ‘N Stitches from Waltzing Matilda
All decked out to celebrate his patron saint! 
St. Michael Socks • St. Michael T-Shirt from Catholic T-shirt Club • St. Michael Coffee Mug
Mighty champion of the woman, Mighty servant of her Lord, 
Come with all your myriad warriors, Come and save us with your sword; 
Enemies of God surround us: Share with us your burning love; 
Let the incense of our worship Rise before His throne above! 

The special little gift I purchased hasn’t arrived yet…
but the younger kids were so excited when this
Special Edition Saints Around the World Box arrived! 

I was just (unsuccessfully) looking for our copy of The Great Battle for Heaven! Perfect timing.
St. Michael Statue, another My Holy Cards Holder, and all sorts of other goodies too!

The Great Battle for Heaven

The Children’s Book of Angels
Gabriel, messenger to Mary, Raphael, healer, friend and guide, 
All you hosts of guardian angels Ever standing by our side, 
Virtues, Thrones and Dominations, Raise on high your joyful hymn, 
Principalities and Powers, Cherubim and Seraphim!
Blackberry Bubly and Izze Sparkling Blackberry Drinks

I had planned to make our Apple Chicken to serve with Angel Hair,
but changed my mind after seeing Ruby’s Chicken Scampi… Yummmmmmmmm!

Our annual Michaelmas Cupcakes are always a favorite! 
Devil’s Food Cupcakes with swords for “stabbing the Devil!” 

3 Archangels Saint Block Set from Almond Rod Toys • Playmobil Swords
Happy Michaelmas!

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.
