Our Lady of Guadalupe Brunch on Gaudete Sunday

by | Dec 13, 2021 | Advent and Christmas, Our Lady of Guadalupe | 5 comments

Morning Offering to Our Lady of Guadalupe
Immaculate Heart of Mary, Heart of my Mother, Our Lady of Guadalupe, I unite to thy purity, thy sanctity, thy zeal and thy love, all my thoughts, words, acts, and sufferings this day, that there may be nothing in me that does not become through thee, a pleasure to Jesus, a gain to souls, and an act of reparation for the offenses against thy Heart. 
On the Menu: 
St. Juan Diego’s (Crepe) Tilma with (Strawberry) Roses
A Woman Clothed with the Sun (Oranges)
Crushed Serpent (Crushed/Extra Crispy Bacon)
Crescent Moon Rolls and Starry Cinnamon Rolls
Bishop Zumarraga’s Candy Cane Crosier
Aztec Cocoa and Orange Juice


This year my husband pulled out a book his mother had given us many year’s ago, Saints of the Southwest, and read about Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe during our brunch. He also read our Our Lady of Guadalupe Pop-Up book to everyone. The babies really loved seeing all the pop ups! 







“Are there peoples inside?” asked our little two year old in her raspy voice… 
Our sweet baby girls both had croup this past week but finally started to improve by the weekend. 
… and of course they pulled out some of our Our Lady of Guadalupe Dolls and Blocks!


“Am I not here who am your Mother? 
Are you not under my shadow and protections? 
Am I not the fountain of your joy? 
Are you not in the fold of my mantle, in the cradle of my arms?” 
– Blessed Virgin Mary to St. Juan Diego 
Our Lady of Guadalupe, ora pro nobis!

    Wonderful photos! "Saints of the Southwest" will be added to my book wish list as I love and live in the Southwest. Well, it isn't very nice where I live but it is in the Southwest.

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.
