What a beautiful little soul. We've made this new chapel veil in her honor.
Our Lady revealed to St. Dominic and Blessed Alan de la Roche additional benefits for those who devoutly pray the Rosary.
1. Whoever shall faithfully serve Me by the recitation of the Rosary, shall receive signal graces.
2. I promise My special protection and the greatest graces to all who shall recite the Rosary.
3. The Rosary shall be a powerful armor against hell, it will destroy vice, decrease sin, and defeat heresies.
4. It will cause virtue and good works to flourish; it will obtain for souls the abundant mercy of God; it will withdraw the hearts of men from the love of the world and its vanities, and will lift them to the desire of eternal things. Oh, that souls would sanctify themselves by this means.
5. The soul which recommends itself to Me by the recitation of the Rosary, shall not perish.
6. Whoever shall recite the Rosary devoutly, applying himself to the consideration of its sacred mysteries, shall never be conquered by misfortune. God will not chastise him in His justice, he shall not perish by an unprovided death; if he be just he shall remain in the grace of God, and become worthy of eternal life.
7. Whoever shall have a true devotion for the Rosary shall not die without the Sacraments of the Church.
8. Those who are faithful in reciting the Rosary shall have during their life and at their death the light of God and the plenitude of His graces; at the moment of death they shall participate in the merits of the saints in paradise.
9. I shall deliver from purgatory, those who have been devoted to the Rosary.
10. The faithful children of the Rosary shall merit a high degree of glory in Heaven.
11. You shall obtain all you ask of Me by the recitation of the Rosary.
12. All those who propagate the holy Rosary shall be aided by Me in their necessities.
13. I have obtained from My Divine Son, that all the advocates of the Rosary shall have for intercessors, the entire celestial court during their life and at the hour of death.
14. All who recite the Rosary are My sons, and brothers of My only son Jesus Christ.
15. Devotion to My Rosary is a great sign of predestination.
I've wanted to learn to sew vestments for a couple of years now. It just seems to me these can be such beautiful little works of art for Our Lord in the Mass--and I want to make beautiful things for the Mass! I don't think I'd be able to find the time for more than one or two a year, but that could be like a little offering to Our Lord.
I took the seminar with two other ladies and we had a great time, learned a lot and I for one am hoping I can return again next summer for another seminar. We'll see!

I'd like to begin to share some of the photos from our recent trip to Italy. Here's St. Mark's.
Hubs and me.

The stone below the crucifix is said to be a piece of the pillar from The Scourging.
Beautiful Latin Vestments.
An Illuminated Manuscript.
St. Mark's Square.
More Views from the Dome.
A Bronze Relief located Behind the Main Altar.
A bronze figure of St. Mark.
The Twelve Apostles. 14 century Gothic art.
St. Mark's Campanile, the Bell Tower.
More Ceiling Mosaics. They cover the entire ceiling. I couldn't get over the detail.
More of the Facade.
View from the Balcony.
Hail, true Body, born
of the Virgin Mary,
who having truly suffered, was sacrificed
on the cross for mankind,
whose pierced side
flowed with water and blood:
May it be for us a foretaste [of the Heavenly banquet]
in the trial of death.
O sweet Jesus, O holy Jesus,
O Jesus, son of Mary,
have mercy on me. Amen.
Most of the veggies were already prepped in the fridge. So all I had to do was add dill, capers, yogurt-mayo dressing and of course, shrimp. A dash of salt and pepper. I'll make a pasta salad to go with it for those in my family who want it. They can just mix the two together.
From Catholic Online
As a child, Ida, of Louvain, Belgium, loved the Hail Mary so much that she recited it up to a thousand times daily, genuflecting or prostrating herself before a picture of the Blessed Virgin each time she repeated it. Ida became a nun of the Cistercian convent of Roosendael. Devotion to the Eucharist permeated her spiritual life. Once, while kneeling in adoration before the Blessed Sacrament reserved at the altar, Ida offered this salutation to the Eucharist: Hail, benign, merciful, and kind Jesus: you who longed for our redemption, and redeemed us from the bonds of perpetual death with your precious blood. On another occasion, she altered the route of a journey she was making in order to visit the Blessed Sacrament along the way, praying, Hail, merciful, holy, and sweet Jesus, who for our redemption, desired the yoke of the cross. Another time, longing for heaven as she meditated before the Eucharist, she pleaded, O hope, O love, and every desire of my heart! How long shall you suffer me to be detained in this prison of flesh?
