~ The Royal Wedding ~

 Special Wedding Prayer composed by Royal Pair: 
"God our Father, we thank you for our families; for the love that we share and for the joy of our marriage.
"In the busyness of each day keep our eyes fixed on what is real and important in life and help us to be generous with our time and love and energy.
"Strengthened by our union, help us to serve and comfort those who suffer. We ask this in the Spirit of Jesus Christ. Amen."

The Royal Couple ~ Kate & William (aka Duchess & Duke of Cambridge)
Beautiful. Dignified. Refreshing. Joyful. Honor. Fruitful. Lovely.

I just love Weddings! 

I wish them all the best!

Blog Kick-Off ~ Holy Thursday ~ Easter Triduum

"How came this man by all these things? And what wisdom is this that is given to him, and such mighty works as are wrought by his hands?  Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary?" 
~ Mark 6:2-3

This blog shall be dedicated to Our Mother, Mary.  May she guide and protect us always.
And to Christ, Our Savior and Reedemer;  May He be glorified now and forever!

Tonight we will attend the HOLY MASS OF THE LORD'S SUPPER with Washing of Feet, Procession and Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament...

We will be preparing our hearts and home for Easter...May not be back until after Easter...
Until then, Wishing you and yours a Joyful and Blessed Easter!
