Celebrating the Saints :: Our 2022 Costumes

by | Nov 9, 2022 | All Hallows Eve, All Saints Day, Costumes | 5 comments

I’ve been meaning to share these pictures from All Hallows’ Eve here on the blog and finally had a few moments to finish up the post. I took them just before our guests arrived for our All Hallows’ Eve/All Saints Party. It was such a fun evening and thankfully the weather (mostly) cooperated!
.: Our Lady of Knock :.
Our Lady of Knock Costume
In Ireland Our Lady dressed 
in shades of white and green, 
to show that she would always be
the Emerald Isle’s Queen…
Her costume included this white dress, cape, green fabric for a belt and this crown.
.: Our Lady of Fatima :.
In Fatima Our Lady stood
upon a holly tree. 
She dressed in white
like crystal light
and held a rosary… 
White dress, gold cord for a belt, round table cloth for a veil, her confirmation rosary, a cord with a gold ball (made from wrapping a little ball with gold chenille pipe cleaners), and a homemade crown. I’m still amazed she made her crown out of cardboard and glue!
“The Lady was holding rosary beads, which were as brilliant as stars—the crucifix seeming to give off the most radiant light of all.”
 
“A cord with a little ball of light hung from her neck and towards the bottom of her tunic was a star.”
 
Our Lady of Fatima with Sister Lucia and Saints Jacinta & Francisco
.: St. Francisco Marto :. 
He originally had a different saint in mind, but was talked into St. Francisco Martin by his sister and two of their friends! He carved a sheep this year to go along with his simple costume and went down to the river to find a stick/shepherd staff.
.: Our Lady Queen of the Angels :. 
She stands there shining like the sun,
in robes of blue and red;
a crown of twelve bright sparkling stars
she wears upon her head…
Wine Red Dress, Blue Cape, gold cord, Crown of Stars, homemade Immaculate Heart
Her sweet friend dressed as a beautiful angel for our party! ♥
.: St. Augustine :. 
His dad helped him make a crozier out of an old pole and some paint and I ordered him a mitre!
The rest he rounded up from the costume bins.
.: St. Thérèse of Lisieux :.
“You cannot be half a saint; you must be a whole saint or no saint at all.”
– St. Thérèse of Lisieux
.: St. Elizabeth Ann Seton :.
This St. Elizabeth Ann Seton costume was actually made by my mother-in-law back in 2006 for our oldest daughter when she was 3 years old. She made them all their costumes that year!!
My mother-in-law passed away two weeks after our youngest was born in 2019…
It was so special to see her wearing that sweet hand-me-down costume this year! ♥
A couple more group photos… I had a hard time picking a favorite of everyone!
All Saints in Heaven, pray for us!

    My goodness, what beautiful children, and what beautiful saints. May I ask a question, perhaps it will inspire a post — how have you kept your children close to the Church into their teenage and young adult years? Your girls dress so feminine and beautiful and appear so devout, and your sons seem so strong and confident in their faith. How have you managed to achieve this?

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.
