The Annunciation Puzzle

by | Mar 13, 2022 | Annunciation, Giveaway, Marian, Puzzles | 47 comments

“Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it done to me according to thy word.”
With the feast of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary coming up in a couple weeks, I pulled out this beautiful new puzzle Friday afternoon for our family to start working on assembling. I thought it might take a week or two to finish but they had it completed by dinner! 
We’ve assembled many puzzles in the past and this was such a fun one with lots of vibrant color variations making it possible for everyone to help. I would love to add more of the Joyful Mysteries puzzles to our collection. 
The puzzles in this series also include a beautiful sacred art poster in each box along with an insert explaining the meaning and significance of these timeless works of art.  Our children found joy exploring this First Joyful Mystery depicted by Blessed Fra Angelico, who Pope John Paul II declared patron of Catholic artists.

.: Giveaway :.

O God, Who in Thy love didst send an Angel to the Blessed Virgin, to tell her that she would be the Mothers of the little Jesus, we ask Thee to hear the prayers which she makes for us in heaven. A Young Catholic’s Daily Missal

    We usually pull out a couple big puzzles to do for Lent to keep down our screen time, this would be a lovely addition. Our favorite is a 3D puzzle of St. Peter's Basilica.

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.
