Joining Like Mother, Like Daughter for some pretty, happy, funny & real times!
Although we are still in the season of Lent, we are celebrating many feast days. There are just so many Angels and Saints and we love to learn about them and ask for their intercessions throughout the year...In Lent, or out of Lent.
"Golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints." Revelations 5:8

We just celebrated the feast of St. Joseph (March 19), the spouse of Mary, and the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary (March 25).
There are many was to celebrate feast days, even in Lent:
From decorating with statues or art work, to reading about a saint, or writings from a saint. A favorite of mine is to celebrate with foods. We have to eat...everyday. We might as well incorporate the day with those associated with the patron in honor. We love to sample new and exciting international types of food. Foods that are authentic to the lands of the saints and traditional recipes that have been handed down from both old and contemporary customs. They can be familiar or exotic. They can be simple or extravagant... But they always remind us of our beloved saints.
"First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all men, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life, godly and respectful in every way. This is good, and pleasing to God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth." 1 Timothy 2:1-4
By far, the most ordinary way we have celebrated a feast day is to attend the Holy Mass, which is extraordinary. It is the perfect prayer and celebration. Unfortunately, this past school year has been challenging to make every Liturgical celebration. We attend daily Mass when we can, and pray at home and celebrate with foods and decor and readings and prayers...
Let us CELEBRATE!
