Pray for the Carmelites

by | Oct 2, 2021 | Carmel, Carmelites, Latin Mass | 2 comments

Please read these recent news articles and keep the Carmelites in your prayers: 
 

“I urge my brother Bishops, priests, and above all the faithful laity to raise their voices against the destruction of Convents of contemplative life and traditional religious Communities. It is necessary to give not only spiritual and moral support, but also material and media support to the victims of an attack that has been getting worse in recent weeks after the promulgation of the Motu Proprio Traditionis Custodes, so that the persecuted religious sisters may be defended and those who are responsible for this persecution that is hateful in the eyes of God and the entire ecclesial community may be exposed.”
+ Carlo Maria Viganò, Archbishop
Former Apostolic Nuncio to the United States

God bless and protect Archbishop Viganò!

    Yes, definitely keep them in your prayers! They're in my diocese and we have reaped so many good fruits from them!

    It has taken me until now to even find the words for a comment on this tragic and terrible situation, this persecution of these Christians. Even so, words fail. I cannot comment on something that is so incomprehensible and so clearly not of God, so, in tears,I repeat- God bless and protect Archbishop Vigano! And God bless and protect these holy Carmelites!

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.
