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

For the Love of Mary

Our Mother of Divine Grace co-op that we belong to has been very blessed this year with the help of a religious order called the Alliance of the Two Hearts . Their love for Our Mother , Our Lord and Family is very encouraging and they are full of such grace, joy, youth and energy.

Every month we have a family day get together on Sunday, with a High Mass , lunch and than a wonderful get together with music, talks, and pure fun.

In January, we had a Marian Festival, which the kids could enter into contest such as: essay, songs, slogans , drawings, and baking.

My daughter enter a slogan and the baking. At first, it was hard to explain what a slogan is to her and give her help without giving her too much help. After a few attempts, this was what she came up on her own:She won first place in the slogan.

She also wanted to enter the baking which she made this: (with some of my help but the whole thing was her idea)
She didn't win in the baking but it sure was very good!

It was a beautiful day filled with so much love for Our Blessed Mother!

Here a boy made a lego High Mass. It was very impressive. His mother said he spent two weeks on it and didn't let anyone help him!

I love it!
