Piano Recital!

Posted on

Abby,  Mary and their friend Ginny participated in the OMTA Music Festival last weekend.  All three girls did a wonderful job.  They have an awesome piano teacher.  Abby has been taking lessons for nine years,  Mary for four years.    Ginny has been playing for two years now.  It was my privilege to  take all three girls to the festival.

What She Said

Kim, so eloquently, has moved me to tears. I too have received many of The Big Questions. I pray I can recall these sentiments next time.

Oh the BABIES!

Both Maryan and Valerie are in labor (or maybe holding their babies by now!)  Pray for them both today! 

 Remember Oh most gracious Virgin Mary that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession was left unaided.  Inspired by this confidence I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins my Mother.  To thee I come, before thee I stand sinful and sorrowful.   Despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy, hear and answer me.   ~Amen

Prayer for a Safe Delivery

 O great Saint Gerard, beloved servant of Jesus Christ, perfect imitator of your meek and humble Savior, and devoted child of Mother of God, enkindle within my heart one spark of that heavenly fire of charity which glowed in your heart and made you an angel of love.
O glorious Saint Gerard, because when falsely accused of crime, you did bear, like your Divine Master, without murmur or complaint, the calumnies of wicked men, you have been raised up by God as the patron and protector of expectant mothers.

Preserve Ruth from danger and from the excessive pains accompanying childbirth, and shield the child which she now carries, that it may see the light of day and receive the purifying and life-giving waters of baptism through Jesus Christ our Lord.


  Please Pray for dear Ruth today.  She is laboring with her seventh blessed child!
