Pray For Us!

Last year we started something new after reading a suggestion from a local homeschool group. According to the instructions, each member of St. Faustina's order would pick a yearly Saint to guide her. Instead of picking one Saint for the whole year, since we have little people with short attentions, we choose a slip every month. One of the older three reads the slip and another makes the "sign" to hang. Then, to the best of our ability, we pray for that Saint's intercession, learn about the Saint and when it happens during the same month, attend Mass on the Saint's feast day.

This month we were lucky to be guided to St. Antony of Egypt so we will plan for Mass as a family on the 17th and hopefully be well-versed in his story by then. It is full of good stuff, like fighting with the devil. Thank you, Holy Spirit, for choosing someone who will ignite our desire to learn about these holy men and women.

In closing, let's look at the last 12 Saints (Blesseds, Archangels, Holy Souls) who "chose us" in 2014:

Saint Dominic, Pray for Us!
Blessed Francisco of Fatima, Pray for Us!
Child Jesus, King of Love, Pray for Us!
Blessed Charles de Foucauld, Pray for Us!
Saint Gianna Beretta Molla, Pray for Us!
Saint Francis Xavier Cabrini, Pray for Us!
Archangel Raphael, Pray for Us!
Saint Bernard of Clairvaux, Pray for Us!
Saint Francis Xavier, Pray for Us!
Holy Souls in Purgatory, Pray for Us!
Saint Helen, Pray for Us!
Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton, Pray for Us!

We are blessed!
