Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread

Artisan bread – only 4 ingredients


The Lord’s Prayer, as taught to us by our Savior, seems simplistic on the surface – yet is profound and multi-faceted in its message. One of the petitioning lines of this prayer has always intrigued me: ‘Give us this day, our daily bread’. Although this sentence of supplication speaks to our daily, physical needs, it has a connotation of so much more.

HAPPY SAINT Valentine's Day!

When Victor (another Catholic Blogger!) from Happy Saints graciously gave me permission to use his awesome saint pictures in a craft, I was so excited!  I just love this company and their adorable saint pictures!

These made an awesome matching game to help my 5 year old learn more about the saints…

…and she’s handing out her SAINT Valentine cards tomorrow…what a nice Catholic change from Barbie and Buzz Lightyear!

Our Lady of Lourdes ~ A Few Crafts and Activities

Our Lady of Lourdes Felt Doll/Statue ~ Craft
Here is another felt doll/statue! It’s Our Lady of Lourdes and she’s perfect to make and/or display on her feast day- Feb 11th. This doll/statue is a project that will require some assistance from older crafters who can use a hot glue gun to add the gold trim to Mary’s veil.  Or if you sew, you could sew it on, too!

It’s made with a paper picture of Our Lady of Lourdes

Host a Card Shower for a Priest!

Our parish priests put forth so much effort for us! They have a life of sacrifice, stress, and heartache with very little appreciation from we parishioners. We need to show these devout men that we are thankful for their sacrifice and living witness. 
How?
Host a Card Shower!

For those who don’t know what a card shower is….It’s when a large group of people join together to send cards to someone. Each individual should take a few minutes to send a store bought card or a hand-made card to the your parish rectory. Normally, the time frame for this would be over the course of a week or month. 
As the host you simply need to get the word out!!
