I just drew the name of a saint to be my patron for the year. Micah Murphy of Truth and Charity blog has set up a “Draw a Saint” generator with 130 saints. Head on over there to choose your patron for the year. You will find the Saint Generator here.
I drew Saint Edith Stein, also known as St. Theresa Benedicta of the Cross.
May the Lord bless you in this new year of 2013!
We officially began our new school year with First Friday Mass and Adoration last wee, but out “classes” didn’t begin until today. We started the morning with breakfast out at a local diner and prayer for a successful day and year. We had a few hiccups throughout the day, but all in all in went well. I think that we may ask St. Benedict to be our patron this year. Our first lesson in Latin included the motto of the Benedictines, “Ora et labora.”
Thank you for the day. Please help us to continue to have good attitudes and to do our best.
St. Benedict, ora pro nobis.
My children are now grown. My youngest is a high school graduate heading off to college. I still love homeschool curriculum and I will continue to share what I know and what we successfully used. I’m in a state of “Now what?” in my life and starting to think about things beyond homeschooling.
