St. Joseph Novena

O St. Joseph, whose protection is so great, so strong, so prompt before the Throne of God, I place in you all my interests and desires. O St. Joseph, do assist me by your powerful intercession and obtain for me from your Divine Son all spiritual blessings through Jesus Christ, Our Lord; so that having engaged here below your Heavenly power I may offer my thanksgiving and homage to the most Loving of Fathers. O St. Joseph, I never weary contemplating you and Jesus asleep in your arms. I dare not approach while He reposes near your heart. Press Him in my name and kiss His fine Head for me, and ask Him to return the Kiss when I draw my dying breath. St. Joseph, Patron of departing souls, pray for us.

Happy Times in Noisy Village

Happy Times in Noisy Village, by Astrid Lindgren, Bethlehem Books

Since learning about the children of “Noisy Village” a few years ago, they have found a special place in our home. Catherine loves reading about the antics of these lively Swedish children who live on three adjacent farms in a small village. This book (reprinted by Bethlehem Books in the Fall of 2003) and The Children of Noisy Village make great read alouds for the entire family.
