Your duty is to sanctify yourself. Yes, even you. Who thinks that this task is only for priests and religious? To everyone, without exception, our Lord said: Be ye perfect, as my heavenly Father is perfect. St. Josemaria

"Love, Hope and Charity"

Last evening, we went to Holy Spirit, were they have the statue of Our Lady Queen of Peace, for a rosary event held by the Knights of Columbus for the portrait of Our Lady of Charity. It was just so beautiful! The weather couldn't get any more perfect! It started in the church, with Readings, Gospel and Homily.

Father Nolan is giving a little history on Our Lady of Charity and this event. Then we process outside while saying the Holy Rosary.

We had the children dress in the colors of Cuba (red,blue,& white), as Our Lady of Charity is patron of Cuba and my family being from Cuba it was a very meaningful event for us! I had wish that my husband and my family were with us.

We are working on Trainboy and how to properly use a rosary, its not easy. Blondie was a bit moody and PrincessGirl just looking so sweet. She really loved being there but she had wish her Papa was with us! (So did I)

Trainboy looking at the Knights as they are processing out. I just wonder what is going on in that little head? I pray that one day all of this will be ingrain in his heart as well in his mind and have a deep love for his faith... Only by the Grace of the Holy Spirit!
Bring flowers and Children's smile to Our Lady. (Blondie didn't want nothing to do with this photo.. still moody)

As we left, PrincessGirl gives a kiss on Our Lady's feet, how humble to be a child with such faith and love.
"Before God, who is eternal, you are much more a child than, before you, the tiniest toddler.And besides being a child, you are a child of God. — Don't forget it." St.Josemaria The Way #860
