I just found these videos on youtube.com for each Archangel that would be neat to show your children today on the Feast of the Archangels. Some of the writings and images in the video are not catholic teachings, but I think that most of the images are great and my children are very young so very visual, so it was worth posting.

I enjoyed reading this article about an interview with Laura Molla, St. Gianna Beretta Molla's daughter. It reminds me again what an amazing woman and mother St. Gianna was, and what a great sacrifice and gift she gave in giving her life up so that her unborn child could live.

I forwarded the below prayer about carrying your crosses that I read on Jessica's blog post about the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross to my husband. He has been stressed out recently about his job and the hours away from our family. Prayer and funny response below...

I read the blog Chasing Cheerios, it has so many wonderful Montessori activity ideas for toddlers and young preschoolers. The writer just had a baby girl and she posted this adorable idea for making handmade thank you cards for newborn baby gifts and well wishes. Just precious, we'll be using this idea in a little under 4 months.

I doubt this story will attract the national media attention that the recent murder of an abortion doctor did, but please keep Pro-Life advocate Jim Pouillon and his family in your prayers.

I just got back from our community's annual Greek Festival held at the local Greek Orthodox church and school. I look forward to this event every year and for weeks can not wait to taste the honey, phyllo, feta, spinach, lamb (not all in one dish of course). Well, I am always embarrassed to say how much I spent on food to take home, but I am now well stocked for a weekend of eating my favorites...
Loukoumades (fried dough drizzled with honey and sprinkled with powdered sugar and cinnamon)
I didn't even have room for a gyro, so I'll be back later this weekend for that. They have a convenient drive through pick-up on one street side of the festival. I also splurged and bought a recipe book with recipes from all the people in their church who make the best of these delicious treats. I think the first recipe I'll try is the Galaktoboureko. The kids loved the festival too as they got to ride some rides, eat some yummy cookies and listen to traditional Greek music. I also took them in to show them the beautiful church, it always takes my breath away.
