Sunday marked the beginning of one of the best weeks in the liturgical calendar~The feast of the Arch Angels.  The kids had angel food cake and read about the angels, even taking some time to learn the St. Michael prayer. Today we read one of our favorite books, St Jerome and the Lion and since […]

On the feast of…

I love feast days and two of the best are All Saints and All Souls.  I love the saints and studying them.  They’re a great example for my kids because most of them certainly weren’t perfect their entire lives.  But once they converted, they had a zeal I hope my kids imitate. We have our […]

The Saint That Found Us

Today we have a new saint!!! Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha was canonized, and  I couldn’t be happier. She is an American and the first Native American to be canonized. When Squirt as 7, we used to read this little book about saints each day.  He would practice writing, (in what I would now consider narration but didn’t know that’s […]

On St. Francis

I may have just jinxed myself. We blessed the dog. Yes, the dog that runs when the gate is open, is an annoying barker, digs, and sheds…what’s beyond trifecta? She’ll probably live until she’s 20 now. And I will have nobody to blame except myself.  And that beloved saint, St. Francis of Assisi. You don’t […]

The Feast of St. Joseph

Today is the feast of St. Joseph.  He is the patron of  fathers, carpenters, those seeking employment, the Church and a peaceful death.  (And probably a lot more.) Long ago, when I was waffling between boyfriends, I begged St. Joseph to intercede on my behalf and send me my Joseph. His prayers worked. I have […]

On The Feast of All Saints

I love the Saints.  Love Them. Honestly, it’s one of the best parts of being Catholic. Apologetics 101: Catholics don’t worship Saints, they ask for their prayers.  Kind of like asking your friend to pray for you. Today we look at all the men and women who have gone before us.  Some have been seemingly […]

St. Gerard

Today is the feast of St. Gerard. He happens to be the patron of expectant mothers as well as the Baby Hulk’s namesake. Considering the amount of pregnancies I’ve had, he has become pretty special to me. We didn’t do a lot to celebrate today, but we did bring out the cheesy little statue I […]

In honor of St. Bernadette’s feast day, Friday afternoon a friend and I took our children to the Grotto at Our Lady of Lourdes parish off of 290. Oh My Gosh! This place was awesome! I’d seen a few pictures, and honestly, was a bit worried the place would be cheesy. I couldn’t have been […]

The Feast of St. Blaise

Today is the feast of St. Blaise. When Lance was confirmed, he chose St. Blaise as his confirmation saint because St. Blaise is patron over those with throat ailments. At one point in our marriage, (when one of the babies arrived, I think), Lance’s throat started closing in on him. Fear, maybe. We found a […]
