We did it!

The Kids and I finally made it to daily Mass. I've intended on going on several occasion, but it is not routine to stop everything, get ready and take the kids to Church, but hopefully it will be. I've had other Mothers tell me that going more than once a week helps the kids behave better on Sunday. We really need that, especially if we want Hubby to go to Church every week. They all did okay. Number Two Son did especially well. He was so cute, he pointed to the candles in front of Jesus and Mary and started singing his version of "Happy Birthday". The kids also got a prayer card for the Canonization of Blessed Basil Moreau:
Canonization Prayer
O God, you are most admirable in your saints. We ask, you grant us, through the intercession of basil Moreau, the Founder of the Congregation of Holy Cross, the favor we ask...we ask for the conversion of the Obama administration's position on the sanctity of Life...so that he may be glorified in the Church, and we may be led to imitate his virtues. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

O God, who in your ineffible Providence,
chose your priest, Blessed Basil, to imitate the virtues of the Holy family and respond to the needs of the Church,grant we beseech you, that, supported by his prayers and example, we may have the strength to boldly confess the Cross of Christ as our only hope.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God for ever and ever. Amen.
