Pictures from Palm Sunday

by | Apr 6, 2020 | Lent, Palm Sunday | 1 comment

“Of the weeks in the Church’s year Holy Week is truly singular for the fullness, majesty, and devotion of the ceremonies. From apostolic times special care had been taken to celebrate the central mysteries of our redemption, and in the course of time three days — Friday, Saturday, Sunday — came to be set apart for the liturgical memory of Christ crucified, Christ buried, Christ risen. A little later was added a fourth day, of solemn ritual remembrance of the institution of the most Holy Eucharist. A further addition was made on the previous Sunday, to celebrate the triumphant entry into His holy city of Christ our Lord, Messias and King.” – Roman Catholic Daily Missal (1962)

After praying along with our parish’s live stream of the Holy Mass for Palm Sunday, we were able to drive by and pick up Blessed Palms from a basket outside the doors to the church 🌿

Benedictus qui venit in nomine Domini.  
Hosanna in excelcis!

Blessed is He that cometh in the name of the Lord. 
Hosanna in the highest!

    These are great photos and the palm of palms is so cool! I especially love the holy card made from blessed palms. I'm definitely going to have to try to make one (or some.) 🙂 Thank you so much for sharing.

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.
