Oh, Dearest Mother, Sweetest Virgin of Altagracia, our Patroness. You are our Advocate and to you we recommend our needs. You are our Teacher and like disciples we come to learn from the example of your holy life. You are our Mother, and like children, we come to offer you all of the love of our hearts. Receive, dearest Mother, our offerings and listen attentively to our supplications. Amen.

Maggie, this looks wonderful! Several times in making my Easter plans I had come across people saying to use toothpics, but I could never envision it, so your pictures helped tremendously! I believe we will make a crown of thorns this year! Thank you!

I love this idea! We use a homemade wreath (from backyard branch) each year and I add toothpicks. Normally, the kids take out a toothpick each time they make a sacrifice, but I really like the idea of taking out a toothpick each day day and adding a rose for each Sunday. Thanks, Maggie! I'm going to see if the kids would rather go this route this year.

Thank you for this!!! I'd been wracking my brain for a craft idea for Little Flowers for self control and this came in a timely manner!
