Maria Therese-Rose’s Baptism Wednesday, Nov 7 2007 

Our precious baby girl was Baptized last night. She was 4 days old; the youngest of our children to be Baptized. We’re having a Baptism party on Sunday, and I’ll post more pictures then.

Here I am during the Churching of Women. "Churching is the woman’s way of giving thanksgiving to God for the birth of her child, and predisposes her, through the priestly blessing that is a part of the ritual, to receive the graces necessary to raise her child in a manner pleasing to God." From Fish Eaters.

The first picture is before entering the church and the second one is at the Altar.

Another gift from St. Therese Tuesday, Oct 9 2007 

This afternoon I received a gift from a dear friend, Anne. Thank you, Anne, for such a perfect gift for our family. We will certainly remember you in our prayers.

Today just happens to be Tuesday, when St. Therese gives a shower of roses to those who pray three Hail Marys in her honor every Tuesday.

This gift is a Sacramental Oil from the House of Loreto. The Holy House of Loreto, the first shrine of international renown dedicated to the Blessed Virgin, has been a true Marian center of Christianity for several centuries. This is the stone house in which Jesus, Mary and Joseph lived in Nazareth.

According to tradition, in 1291, when the Crusaders were finally expelled from Palestine, Our Lady’s stone house was transported "by angels" first to Illyria (in Croatia), then to the territory of Loreto on December 10, 1294, where it remains to this day.

Oil is blessed at the Shrine and burns in the lamps before the altar in the Holy House. At certain times, this blessed oil is drained from the lamps and poured into small containers for distribution to pilgrims.
