Pizza, Our Lady, and a Rosary with friends

When we said yes to hosting the missionary image of Our Lady of Guadalupe we received a good call from our friends the Legers asking if they could come over for a rosary. They even offered to bring food! Sure thing! No problem. But if you had told me before last week that we would have 21 people in our house doing the rosary, I would have been surprised.

But one thing after another, we had 7 families from 5 parishes coming to our home including 11 children. I ran a shuttle service to handle the 8 cars including our own because due to the snow we had parking for 6 cars. We ordered 6 cheese pizzas, thanks Chris, cut vegetables, and people brought deserts.

We prayed one rosary in front of the Missionary Image of Our Lady, and were also blessed with an increase in faith as we took time to learn more about the image. A good time was had by all!

A blessed visitation by the Missionary Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe to our household

Our Household was blessed this Friday to be hosts to a very special guest: the missionary image of Our Lady of Guadalupe.

Two weeks ago I was asked if I would pick up the missionary image and move it down to Worcester and back to Fitchburg. No problem I said, my favorite gym is in Worcester and the time was convenient. I had no idea what I was saying yes to! I first started to get a sense of what I was getting into, when people started calling to ask if they could visit her, or to ask when I would be moving her around.

Wow! People were really interested in this, and for good reason too! Someone else has done a very good job blogging on the subject of the missionary image so I will point you to:

However, I will add to this page, that when our lady visited our house, it was a night of grace! Mary filled each one of our family members with grace and increased our faith. Thank you Mary for blessing our house.

March for Life 2011: "I'm Pro-Life Because.."

Brian Smith: I attended the March for Life 2011 in Washington, D.C. Here is a video where FRC asks some of the tens of thousands who marched in our nation's capital in support of life, why they are pro-life.
