Schools Out!

For most of us school is out!  If you are like me I enjoy the break from routine but it also allows for more time with my children and I can have a better prayer schedule with them with all the extra time.  Usually during the year my kids have adoration time at school, but once that is over it is even more important for me to make the effort to take them to the chapel.  Often times we can make a visit to Jesus before heading to the pool or library.  Any time you are heading out the door is a good time for a quick visit to see Jesus and pray!  :)  You don't have to stay for an hour, I suggest you go more often for short visits, it helps the kids to develop their prayer life and trust in Jesus. 

Here are two photos from our last adoration day at school for this year at St Francis of Assisi parish in Wichita, Kansas.

Today we celebrate Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament and the first apparition at
Fatima!  I know we have talked often about the messages of Fatima.  It's because
of how important these messages are still today!  :) Lucia was quoted as saying,
not long before her death, that the messages were more important now than when
they were given!  And, they would continue to be of importance for years to
Read more here about the importance of Adoration and Fatima....
Please feel free to contact us if you need any help or inspiration, or have any
questions at all.  God bless you all and please keep us in your prayers and we shall
be praying for all of you as well!

Divine Mercy

We are nearing the end of our Lenten journey. It is never too late to take the kids
to adore Jesus....perhaps you hoped to start earlier but busy days got in the
way...don't lose heart!  Take a few minutes after school, after a short trip to the
store, on a Sunday afternoon....drop in the chapel for just a few minutes if that is
all you can spare.  It is always a good time to pray together before Jesus.  
Remember the 6th day of the Divine Mercy Novena and think about how your
children are fulfilling this by their times of adoration...they give strength to Jesus
in that hour of agony.....

Lent, a time to adore

Lent is an especially good time to bring children to adore Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament.  Fill the time not spent before the tv with time before the Monstrance, adoring Jesus....giving thanks for the Eucharist remaining with us, Emmanuel, God with us!  :)
