Honoring Our Lady


Yesterday was the feast of the Queenship of Mary, as well as the traditional feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary!

I spent most of the morning and early afternoon running errands and grocery shopping (By myself!!!!) so I didn't have an opportunity to make a crown cake like we did last year.  Anne did though, add hers turned out absolutely beautiful!  Perhaps we will be able to make another one in May, on the traditional feast of the Queenship of Mary, which is also the day Captain received his First Holy Communion...   (Speaking of which, I still laugh whenever I remember that day!)

Nevertheless, I still had a little bit of time to whip up a batch of simple crown cupcakes and print a few lovely coloring pages for our children to enjoy after we prayed the rosary last night.

Hail, holy Queen enthroned above, O Maria.
Hail, Queen of mercy and of love, O Maria.

Triumph, all ye cherubim, Sing with us, ye seraphim,
Heaven and earth resound the hymn:
Salve, salve, salve Regina!

Our life, our sweetness, here below, O Maria!
Our hope in sorrow and in woe, O Maria!

Triumph, all ye cherubim, Sing with us, ye seraphim,
Heaven and earth resound the hymn:
Salve, salve, salve Regina!


(The children & I practiced this beautiful hymn each morning this past week in honor of Our Lady's feasts both this Saturday and last.)
