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

Our Latest News

I want to thank you dear friends for your prayers that I had requested. It seems God has a plan for our family that at times, I wish He let me on them.

My husband's job is transferring him from Northeast state of Delaware to a southern state of Mississippi. We have lived here as a family from the start of our family 11 years ago where we have very close and dear friends, a very strong home-schooling support, and a very lovely parish.

Now we have to sell our home and move to a new and unknown area (while pregnant).. However, God is good with us since my husband has a great job that he is wanted for his skills, his knowledge and his work ethics. His employer will help with a "relocation package" but in all, it will be hard to leave something you know to the unknown, people you love dearly, your children love dearly to the unknown.

But this is my lent, God is showing us, myself that He is in control, not I and that I need to let go of things and of relationship and trust Him and only Him.

As my dear 9 year tells me when I try to explain to her this plan without crying, " Mom, if it is God's will, than no matter what, we will happy."

So if you can please just keep us in your prayers that I don't lose my mind in the process of this relocation .

Have a Blessed Day...

Cecilia, I will keep you in my prayers. It is a challenging time, but hopefully, an exciting one too. "I have a plan for your life, says the Lord ..." Jeremiah 29:11. God's blessings to you and your family!

If you don't mind me asking, where in Mississippi. I went to college in Jackson and lived there for a total of 10 years! My oldest was born there. Other than the heat, it really is a great place to live! Very quiet and not so busy busy, if you know what I mean. :) I moved from Cali to Tennessee when I was 13 weeks pregnant so I can feel your pain. Prayers!

**sniff** I'm sad, though I figured it was going to happen--I couldn't think of a good reason why it wouldn't. While your daughter is wise and correct, *I* will be happier to find out in a couple years time that you are moving BACK!!!

Your 9-year old has a lot of wisdom for her years. I'm sorry that you will be suffering so many losses... but trust that God will love you through it. Everything is grace. He is in control. Our prayers are with you!

Moving is always hard, I know. But at least you will be closer to family, and Mississippi is a very beautiful place.
