Equipping Catholic Families for January Saints 2022!

Equipping Catholic Families for January 2021 Saints!

Welcome to our monthly summary of crafts and family traditions related to the Monthly Devotion, Key Feast Days and the appropriate Season of the Liturgical Calendar.

  • Prompt Me to Pray through the 12 Days of Christmas PDF is PACKED with prayers and prayer prompts to tap into all the wonderful gifts God has given us within our Faith! It has simple summaries and excellent prompts to pray: to pray with gratitude, to foster the virtues and gifts already infused into us at Baptism, and to help us appreciate all God’s Grace and Tools He freely offers to us, as we pursue holiness.

I’ve added some new stamps in the shop!

With our own custom Super Saints artwork for over 60 Saints, I’m pleased to be able to add new Saints Stamps to the shop as they are requested by customers. I was happy to include the St Benedict medal graphic behind St Benedict’s head. It almost looks like a very specialized halo.

Prompt Me to Pray through ADVENT is a 16 page 8.5″x5.5″ booklet that introduces a practical plan for more consistent prayer from the heart, particularly during the Liturgical Season of Advent.

{Movie Review} Bridge of Roses: Our OWN Miraculous Marian Shrine and Pilgrimage Site in CANADA!

I’m so excited to share news of this brand NEW documentary of our own Miraculous, Marian Shrine and Pilgrimage Site in Canada!

The video is so nicely created with a reenactment of The Story of Our Lady of the Cape (starring my favorite Bishop, Bishop Scott McCaig and Fr. Ben St. Croix) and featuring inspiring interviews from two of my favorite Companions of the Cross, Fr. Roger Vandenakker and Fr. Mark Goring, as well as Fr. Donald Calloway  of the Marians of the Immaculate Conception.

We are so blessed to have Our Lady of the Cape; our own National Shrine in Quebec, Canada!

“Bridge of Roses: The Story of Our Lady of the Cape is a faith-affirming documentary that recounts the remarkable story of Cap-de-la-Madeleine near Trois Rivieres, Quebec – its missionaries, miracles and 400 year relationship with the Mother of God.”

from our National Shrine Notre Dame du Cap

I purchased the digital download of the movie for just $11 and watched it on Vimeo.

Check out this awesome movie  here: Bridge of Roses

I was also SO excited to hear about the giant Marian Congress held in our nation’s Capital in 1947!

and… I eagerly enrolled in the Rosary Confraternity at rosarybridge.com joining a minimum of three rosaries each week with thousands praying around the world!

The Time I met Jesus on a Park Bench

So much of what we do each day is experienced through our senses. In conversation with others, we hear them, we see them, we experience our surroundings (even if we’re on Zoom!) and it is tangible. When we pray in mental prayer, from the silence of our hearts, we can lose sight of Whom we are praying to, perhaps sabotaging our efforts to be vulnerable, desensitizing ourselves, and impersonalizing our relationship with Jesus, because we can’t easily perceive or imagine His Presence.
