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.

Can you believe it's that time again? I'm working on redesigning the weblog and would like to invite you to participate as a contributor, if you wish. Please send a sample (or a link to one) to my email address: nissa@gadboisfamily.com

I love Lent. But I think that most of us miss the point of the season. It isn't about temporarily giving up chocolate, or smoking, or... whatever. When the season is over, will you take it up again? Have you grown in grace at all?

Much better, I think to sacrifice more time to prayer, to service. We must die to ourselves during the Lenten season, so that one Easter we are re-born - a new creation in Christ Jesus, and more worthy than we were to be a bearer of His name (Christian), and of His Gospel.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! For the weblog that is.
I don't know what I could contribute but I thank God that I will have the fruit of your efforts to turn to for inspiration again this year. I was just meditating last night on how tremendously God has blessed so many of you women with great talent which you then generously share with the rest of the world.
For this I will continue to Praise Him!
