Happy Anniversary!

Today is my hubby's oldest brother's 4th Anniversary of his ordination to the holy priesthood! He was ordained on the Feast of his favorite saint no less, Saint Rita of Cascia.

Happy Anniversary
Father!


To celebrate the feast of St. Rita, the children and I will be reading a brief story about her from the Picture Book of Saints, while we enjoy a tea in her honor.

I hope you all have a blessed day!

Most gracious Heavenly Father, We thank you for our faithful priests and bishops, whose spiritual fatherhood and example of fidelity, self-sacrifice, and devotion is so vital to the faith of your people.

May our spiritual fathers be guided by the examples of Saints Peter and Paul, all the Apostles and their saintly successors. Give them valiant faith in the face of confusion and conflict, hope in time of trouble and sorrow, and steadfast love for you, for their families, and for all your people throughout the world. May the light of your Truth shine through their lives and their good works.

Assist all spiritual fathers, that through your Grace they may steadily grow in holiness and in knowledge and understanding of your Truth. May they generously impart this knowledge to those who rely on them. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
