Praying for Matthew Karol

Prayer During Hurricane Season

  • Prayer for Hurricane Season
    O God, Master of this passing world, hear the humble voices of your children. The Sea of Galilee obeyed your order and returned to its former quietude; you are still the Master of land and sea. We live in the shadow of a danger over which we have no control. The Gulf, like a provoked and angry giant, can awake from its seeming lethargy, overstep its conventional boundaries, invade our land and spread chaos and disaster. During this hurricane season, we turn to You, O loving Father. Spare us from past tragedies whose memories are still so vivid and whose wounds seem to refuse to heal with the passing of time. O Virgin, Star of the Sea, Our Beloved Mother, we ask you to plead with your Son in our behalf, so that spared from the calamities common to this area and animated with a true spirit of gratitude, we will walk in the footsteps of your Divine Son to reach the heavenly Jerusalem where a storm-less eternity awaits us. Amen. Originally dedicated to the victims of Hurricane Audrey in 1957. - Fr. Al Volpe, Cameron Parish, LA

Prayer to End Abortion

  • Prayer to End Abortion
    Lord God, I thank you today for the gift of my life, And for the lives of all my brothers and sisters. I know there is nothing that destroys more life than abortion, Yet I rejoice that you have conquered death by the Resurrection of Your Son. I am ready to do my part in ending abortion. Today I commit myself Never to be silent, Never to be passive, Never to be forgetful of the unborn. I commit myself to be active in the pro-life movement, And never to stop defending life Until all my brothers and sisters are protected, And our nation once again becomes A nation with liberty and justice Not just for some, but for all, Through Christ our Lord. Amen!

Thanks so much for the visuals --- Looks like loads of learning fun!!!


Thanks for the pictures Cay. You said to ask away, so what did you use to make your altar? And where did you get the puzzles in the math center?


The puzzles are Doug and Melissa board products. Here's their website

I Love all their products. :)

The altar is just a two-tier bookshelf from the dollar store. The holy water bottles are from Michael's craft shop embellished with crosses the girls glued on.

The altar cloth and altar set I bought from Our Father's House.

The CGS albums by Moira Farrell are on the second shelf hidden under the cloth for easy access and so they don't get misplaced.

The flowers look fake but they were "plucked" from my sister-in-law's garden. Pretty, huh? :)


Btw, the Mosaic books are now in liturgical order. LOL


Wonderful visuals Cay, thanks for sharing them!

It's a good thing you have a blog Cay, so I can learn something :) I love the "body parts"! Really, that is a great idea. I need to get Mark's mini-Montesorri centers ready for this year (esp. those felts) and you've inspired me. Thank you!

You don't mean "baby Mark", do you? As in, the baby you just had yesterday?

Gosh, I feel old.

The last post was me. Forgot to change it...again! : /


Awesome, Cay! Thanks for all the pictures!! :)


I want to come over and play! I love the body parts photo. We are starting that study in January.


Great stuff, Cay! I love that DQ organized that space for her little sister! How very sweet of her!


Your learning centers are wonderful. I pray and hope my classroom(s) can look that good.


Neat stuff!

I just need to get rid of all my "clutter" and get some neat stuff like that for Sam and Jack. :D



Wow that is SO cool! I love it all. :) My daughter is 5 and started kindergarten this year. She attended a Montessori preschool last year, before we moved. I admit to missing that school so very much! We are homeschooling and I wanted to have Montessori things too - these are great ideas, thanks for sharing! :)

House Prayer

  • (Adapted from Our Lady of the Oaks Retreat House Prayer)
    God our Father, Open our hearts to your Presence. Open our minds to your Guidance. Open our lives to your Love, Through the intercession of Our Lady Bless us, bless our family and our home. Make us an instrument of your peace And a sign of your presence. Unite us to your Son, Jesus, in such a way That all who see and know us may see and know Jesus. By our unity to Him on Earth, Unite us to Him Forever in Heaven. With faith and confidence We ask this in the Name of Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord. Amen.
