Happy Feast of St. Lucia! Now I couldn’t not celebrate today JUST because I didn’t have anything ready. We have our very own Lucia, so we had to! I was able to randomly pull things together, BUT let me tell you...even though the crown is made and the bread is baked...it was a rough go! There was crying and time-outs and even an injury in the making. Sometimes I think I’m just not cut out for this kind of thing! In honor of “the light” today, I had to admit that because I think it’s easy to fall into the trap of seeing all the amazing celebrations out there and somehow thinking your less-than for not doing what others are doing. We rarely hearing about the process, and sometimes things are messy and hardly fun! But...it’s funny...after all is said and done, I suuuuper enjoyed celebrating the day! It was really cute to see Lucy all dressed up (and she kept dropping the bread which was hilarious), and I was kind of impressed that I was able to pull some sort of bread thing together even though I hadn’t planned it! (Remember me? The non-baker!! (Thanks puff pastry and jam!!!)) All this to say: just do what you can, and don’t beat yourself up for what you don’t do, or for what’s messy along the way! Happy St. Lucy’s day!!! St. Lucia, pray for us! ❤️ . . . . #catholic #christian #catholicfaith #catholicism #bissisterhood #jesus #prayer #catholicliving #catholicsisters #projectblessed #peaceinchrist #christianliving #jesuslovesyou #catholicism #catholicblogger #blogger #heartofchrist #holyspirit #catholicconnect #philotheafound #hope #virtue #stlucia #saintlucy #saintlucia #feastday
All these Marian Feast days leading up to Christmas! Does Mary take our attention away from Christ? No, Our Lady always leads us by the hand to her Son. What better Feast Day reminds us of this than the Feast we celebrate today? The Virgin Mary appeared to Juan Diego in Mexico on December 12th, 1531. She instructed him to tell the Bishop to construct a temple in the spot where she appeared. When the Bishop didn’t believe him, Mary sent him back to the Bishop carrying roses, which do not bloom on that hill in December. There was also a miraculous painting of her apparition on her tilma, and after word spread, approximately 8 million people converted to Christianity. The image of Our Lady shows us that she is not to be worshipped, even though she is more powerful than the Aztec god’s—appearing as an Aztec princess, standing before the sun and over the crescent moon, yet with her head bowed and hands folded in prayer, showing that she herself is not God. Mother Mary always leads us to Christ, offering her love, guidance, compassion and protection along the way. She hears our sorrows, is with us in hardship, and draws us always closer to Jesus. Happy Feast day, friends! Mother Mary, Our Lady of Guadelupe, pray for us! . . . . #catholic #christian #catholicfaith #catholicism #bissisterhood #jesus #prayer #catholicliving #catholicsisters #projectblessed #peaceinchrist #christianliving #jesuslovesyou #catholicism #catholicblogger #blogger #heartofchrist #holyspirit #catholicconnect #philotheafound #hope #virtue #mary #mothermary #ourlady #ourladyofguadalupe #tilma #juandiego

Hail, bright star of ocean, God’s own Mother blest, Ever sinless Virgin, gate of heavenly rest. Taking that sweet Ave which from Gabriel came, Peace confirm within us, changing Eva’s name. Break the captives’ fetters, Light on blindness pour, All our ills expelling, Every bliss implore. Show thyself a Mother; May the Word Divine, born for us they Infant, Hear our prayers through thine. Virgin all excelling, Mildest of the mild, Freed from guilt preserve us, Pure and undefiled. Keep our life all spotless, Make our way secure, Till we find in Jesus, Joy forevermore. Through the highest heaven, To the Almighty Three, Father, Son and Spirit, One same glory be. Amen.//Happy Feast of the Immaculate Conception! Mary, most pure, pray for us! . . . . #catholic #christian #catholicfaith #catholicism #bissisterhood #jesus #prayer #catholicliving #catholicsisters #projectblessed #peaceinchrist #christianliving #jesuslovesyou #catholicism #catholicblogger #blogger #heartofchrist #holyspirit #catholicconnect #philotheafound #hope #virtue #mothermary #immaculateconception #mary
