The Lamb Suffered for Us

"The Lamb who was slaughtered for the sake of our salvation still thirsts – His desire for our salvation is greater than could be shown by His suffering – for His suffering is without end, as is His love."
~ St. Catherine of Siena ~

Words to Remember

"He will provide the way and the means, such as you could never have imagined. Leave it all to Him, let go of yourself, lose yourself on the cross, and you will find yourself entirely."
~ St. Catherine of Siena ~

St. Catherine of Siena, pray for us!

Lent is Just Around the Corner

Our garden is starting to clothe itself in purple, reminding me that Lent starts next week.


The appearance of the crocuses also reminds me that it's time for me to start focusing on cleaning up the garden of my soul and to help my children to want to do the same with their souls. 


God is good!


*Please excuse the photos. I lost my camera and my phone's photos are subpar.

The Nature Center

We spent part of the day with some friends at a local nature center. My little boys were excited to see the ducks. I couldn't help but smile when I heard Kieran exclaim, "There's a duck. There's a duck."


We're looking forward to another field trip next week. 😊

Tummy Time

Aidan enjoys his few minutes without his "boots and bar" each day. He's very good at rolling from one place to another and pushing himself backwards. Sometimes, I just sit and watch my baby boy in awe. When I see him rocking back and forth on all fours, I can't help but be amazed. He was in and out of a cast on his right leg from July 6 to October 28. Since then, he has worn his shoes and bar for 23 hours each day. Despite all this, he is exactly where he should be. I know that like his brothers and sisters, he will crawl when he is meant to do so.

God is so good!

2016 Personal Reading

Characters of the Passion
by Ven. Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen
Fr. Saguto recommended this book to me. It is excellent reading for Lent.

Covenanted Happiness
by Msgr.  Cormac Burke
This was another Fr. Saguto recommendation. I'm glad that I read it.

Humility of Heart
by Fr. Cajetan Mary de Bergamo
This book took me almost a year to read. I will be rereading it this year. I highly recommend it.

St. Monica and the Power of Persistent Prayer
by Mike Aquilina

St. Monica: Model of Christian Mothers
by F.A. Forbes

Tasha Tudor's Garden
by Tovah Martin
This is one of my favorite gardening books. I can dream...

Preparing Our Hearts and Minds

The manger is ready and waiting to be filled with soft hay each time one of
our children offers a good deed to God during Advent.
"Before Our Lady conceived Our Lord in the flesh,
she conceived Him in the interior silence of her soul."
Advent Recollection: Silence ~

I hope to listen to this Advent Recollection Series again. If we are quiet, it is because, once again this year, my family and I will be focusing on the beauty of Advent and being Christkindls to each other. We will be preparing our hearts, minds, and souls for the coming of our Savior, Jesus Christ.

May God bless you with a peaceful, faith-filled, and fruitful Advent!
