Weaving the Faith Liturgical Living Book by Catholic Icing {Review}

Finally! ONE Binder to contain all the Liturgical Living Printables, Saints Day Celebrations, Catholic Planner, Prayer Bank, Family Recipes, Sacrament, Saint and Calendar printables I have gathered over the years! I have over 50 Catholic Craft Kit Printables in the Arma Dei Shoppe
packed with the Saints, Sacraments, Catechism, Prayers, and Catholic Crafts. I have also collected a plethora of awesome resources through the Catholic Mom Bundles for the last four years. I have SO much Catholic Clipart to make this Liturgical Living Book my own and I think it will be an incredible Family Heirloom that I’d like to replicate for each child as they start their own families.

Feast Day Fun: Catholic Crafts for February

Equipping Catholic Families for February Saints Days!

This is our monthly summary of crafts and family traditions related to the Monthly Devotion, Key Feast Days and the appropriate Season of the Liturgical Calendar. As our kids get older, our activities and commitment to Catholic crafts has changed and adjusted (at least for our tween, teen, and young adult kids)! While we haven’t exactly been adding a lot of Catholic crafts around here, we do enjoy pulling out the crafts and programs we’ve developed over the years, sometimes sharing them with younger families in our parish!

Oremus {Book Review}

This is such a handy little prayer book, especially for me since our Parish started having Adoration every Thursday evening and Friday morning.

I’m too young to have learned the Latin prayers and this book has all of the prayers: Morning Prayers, Prayers at Meals, Evening Prayers, Prayers for Adoration and Holy Communion, The Rosary, Consecration to Mary, Stations of the Cross, Divine Mercy, many Marian Prayers, Psalms and so much more! And they are all presented in English on one page, and Latin on the facing page. So even if you grew up memorizing these Latin prayers, now you can know exactly what you are saying with the translation right in front of you.
