Our Lady of Lourdes

Things didn't go as planned desired.  We made due nonetheless and had a blessed feast day of Our Lady of Lourdes.

Sparkles (Bernadette) and Sweetie (Mary) acted out Meredith's retelling of the apparition of Our Lady.  It was the first time we made reference to Monday's With Mary.  It's beautiful.

Here are the treats we had in honor of Our Lady of Lourdes.  Sparkles was in charge of finding the correlation between the treats and feast day.

Piglets in a blanket are always enjoyed by the little ones when they get to make them on their own.  They like to add cheese.

What can I say!  I can't resist Sonic Happy Hour and I've been craving all things tart.  It's very refreshing!

Hail Mary, poor and humble Woman, Blessed by the Most High! Virgin of hope, dawn of a new era, We join in your song of praise, to celebrate the Lord’s mercy, to proclaim the coming of the Kingdom and the full liberation of humanity.

Hail Mary, lowly handmaid of the Lord, Glorious Mother of Christ! Faithful Virgin, holy dwelling-place of the Word, Teach us to persevere in listening to the Word, and to be docile to the voice of the Spirit, attentive to his promptings in the depths of our conscience and to his manifestations in the events of history.
Hail Mary, Woman of sorrows, Mother of the living! Virgin spouse beneath the Cross, the new Eve, Be our guide along the paths of the world. Teach us to experience and to spread the love of Christ, to stand with you before the innumerable crosses on which your Son is still crucified.

Hail Mary, woman of faith, First of the disciples! Virgin Mother of the Church, help us always to account for the hope that is in us, with trust in human goodness and the Father’s love. Teach us to build up the world beginning from within: in the depths of silence and prayer, in the joy of fraternal love, in the unique fruitfulness of the Cross.

Holy Mary, Mother of believers, Our Lady of Lourdes, pray for us.



  1. Lena, love the title of your blog. It was perfect that you were the first to comment on my post about the joy-filled life. Also, my hometown parish is Our Lady of Lourdes. My daughter's Confirmation name is Bernadette. I love Our Lady of Lourdes! Great treats associated with it -- very fun!

  2. Roxane - Thanks for stopping by. Bernadette is my Confirmation name too. We all enjoyed the treats. None of which, were planned. The day was full of simplicity and JOY.
