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.

St. Ignatius of Antioch. Try to get to one of the Epistles on the way to Rome...wow, what reading. Scroll down to "Things to Do" on the link. Most everything can be done around the dinner table. Here's an excerpt from the Letter to Rome:

CHAPTER IV.--ALLOW ME TO FALL A PREY TO THE WILD BEASTS.

I write to all the Churches, and impress on them all, that I shall willingly die for God, unless ye hinder me. I beseech of you not to show an unseasonable goodwill towards me. Suffer me to become food for the wild beasts, through whose instrumentality it will be granted me to attain to God. I am the wheat of God, and am ground by the teeth of the wild beasts, that I may be found the pure bread of God. Rather entice the wild beasts, that they may become my tomb, and may leave nothing of my body; so that when I have fallen asleep [in death], I may not be found troublesome to any one. Then shall I be a true disciple of Jesus Christ, when the world shall not see so much as my body. Entreat the Lord for me, that by these instruments I may be found a sacrifice to God. I do not, as Peter and Paul, issue commandments unto you. They were apostles of Jesus Christ, but I am the very least [of believers]: they were free, as the servants of God; while I am, even until now, a servant. But when I suffer, I shall be the freedman of Jesus Christ, and shall rise again emancipated in Him. And now, being in bonds for Him, I learn not to desire anything worldly or vain.


We have dough rising to bake pretzels The Hot Cross bun suggestion on the link above is great if you're making rolls or muffins for dinner. Use red frosting for the cross.

Hey Gwen, I think Catholic Culture is undergoing renovation right now -- or at least I think I remember getting an e-mail about it a couple of weeks ago? so right now that link is to a "coming soon" generic page... but, yeah, hopefully REAL SOON!!!
