Feast Day

Today is the feast of Saint Joseph, the name- sake of our small Missouri city. We made a "Table" with fancy bread. Meggar created an Easter Egg wreath with 3 tiny fleur-de-lis flowers.
Winger made a Monstrance!
Polar Bear intertwined his cross!
Dorito made the staff of St. Joseph, complete with an iris flower.

...yuMMMy feast day treats with their Mother's homemade blackberry jam for afternoon tea!

(We watched "Staircase" from NetFlix --the story of St. Joseph's miracle staircase for nuns in New Mexico. A+)

Please join us in a Novena in preparation for Meggar's Confirmation on April 6th.
St. Catherine of Alexandria,
pray for us.

Novena to the Holy Spirit
O Holy Spirit, You are the Third Person of the Blessed Trinity! You are the Spirit of truth, love, and holiness, proceeding from the Father and the Son, and equal to Them in all things! I adore You and love You with all my heart. Teach me to know and to seek God, by Whom and for Whom I was created. Fill my heart with a holy fear and a great love of Him. Give me compunction and patience, and do not let me fall into sin. Increase faith, hope, and charity in me and bring forth in me all the virtues proper to my state of life. Help me to grow in the four cardinal virtues, Your seven gifts, and Your twelve fruit. Make me a faithful follower of Jesus, an obedient child of the Church, and a help to my neighbor. Give me the grace to keep the commandments and to receive the sacraments worthily. Raise me to holiness in the state of life to which You have called me, and lead me through a happy death to everlasting life. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Grant me also, O Holy Spirit, Giver of all good gifts, the special favor for which I ask... (State your request here...) if it be for Your honor and glory and for my well-being. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Winger and Polar Bear got "Silly String" for their 10th birthday, so they used the warm weather today to be silly.

Happily, these colored eggs turned into an appetizer to hold everyone over until the main meal was ready! Alleluia!
