“Allow me, brothers, to look toward heaven rather than at the earth, so that my spirit may set on the right course when the time comes for me to go on my journey to the Lord.” – St. Martin of Tours

I have so many partial posts in my drafts folder… Here’s one I was able to finish up from the feast of St. Martin of Tours last year.

Crafting Lanterns

Like their older siblings Celebrating Martinmas back in 2013, our littlest girls loved crafting their own Martinmas Lanterns!

Find the directions here.

Family Rosary, Bonfire and S’mores

We had Snow on Martinmas again and it was coooooollllllld… Our annual Celebrating Martinmas Lantern Walk was very brief, we opted to huddle around the fire pit with blankets for our family rosary and then roasting s’mores.

Martinmas Lantern Walk

Dear well-beloved Saint, you were first a soldier like your father. Converted to the Church, you became a soldier of Christ, a priest and then a Bishop of Tours. Lover of the poor, and model for pagans and Christians alike, protect our soldiers at all times. Make them strong, just and charitable. Always aiming at establishing peace on earth.

St. Martin of Tours, pray for us!

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.
