- “And all our troubles thou seest; thou knows them as they occur. . Thou has always prayed to Christ God for the faithful, And has relieved much pain and misery of the sorrowful. O Holy Virgin, never cease, to the end of time, To pray for the salvation of our race. God has made thee even more glorious than the Seraphim: O hasten to us, O Joy of all the Sorrowful. May we find safety in your mantle and healing for our broken hearts.” . . . #assumption #feastoftheasdumption #ourlady #blessedmother #theotokos #prayer #sorrowfulmother #prayforus

- My kiddos (including this handsome fella) go back to school next week. We expend so much energy on preparing supplies, lesson plans, filling in the calendar and submitting paperwork. I wonder about their hearts and souls though. So many kids are hurting. It’s rough out there and spiritual warfare is real. Tonight I’m honored to speak at Holy Family Church and School in Parma, Ohio, about the nobility of our role as Christian parents. As Gus stands behind me I am reminded that as mothers and fathers, we are on the front lines as the guardians of their souls. I will also be sharing small ways to instill a holy truth in our children that will arm them with confidence, strength, dignity and courage. Grateful to do battle against the enemy tonight! Come, Holy Spirit! #StMichaeldefendusinbattle #StMichaelprayforus

- Would you be so kind as to offer a prayer for my husband? My life-traveling buddy is off on a new adventure. This time, he's flying solo as he is makes his first silent retreat (a FAR cry from life at home)! 🙉 I am so happy for this much needed time of respite. I pray the Lord renews his spirit as the fearless, faith-filled leader of our home. I've learned it's not just the actual experience that needs to be wrapped in prayer but the days leading up to, and after a spiritual encounter. For all of our weary men, Holy Spirit, enkindle the 🔥 of your love and renew their strength! 💪🏼 Psalm 42:1 🦌 . . . . #retreat #silentretreat #trappist #respite #contemplative #monastery #catholic #goodsheperd #faith #manhood #prayer #psalms #divineoffice #liturgyofthehours #monkbread #abbey #silentretreat #asthedeerlongs

- Karolina's newest love is all things flamingo. So, when I saw this dress I just had to get it for my flamingo fairy princess. Turns out, she may like it a little TOO much. Last night she pitched a fit when I took it off to give her a bath. Recently she has started self injurious and violent behaviors, and I could see the meltdown coming. Let's just say we were both in tears by the end. 😢 I hid the dress in her closet because she's pretty good about moving on and forgetting if the trigger is removed. Well, NOT THIS TIME. 🤦🏼‍♀️She got up in the middle of the night and ransacked her room looking for that dress (see “exhibit B”). When I woke her up this morning, her room was a disaster and she was sleeping (like an angel of course) 👼 cuddling that darn flamingo dress! 🙄 I've heard that other kids on the spectrum do not sleep well, and that is definitely the case with us. K is up at all hours, and it's quite stressful. I worry she may wander out of the house or hurt herself. I know melatonin is a common med for kids with #asd. Would love to hear any other nighttime tips for those who’ve dealt with this. In the meantime, don't be surprised if you see Miss K in this dress all day, erryday! 😂 . . . #autism #autismmom #asd #specialneedschildren #specialneedsmom #awareness #autismawareness #specialneedsfamilies #autusmsupport #onedayatatime

- A banner day! Meeting sisters in Christ at the Sorrowful Mother Shrine for a day of prayer and fellowship. The best part for my mom-heart was spending the day with all 5 kiddos together. ♥️ My oldest son has been working so much this summer. I miss him. 😩 He will be a senior this year and I am holding on to EVERY second that we are all in one place. At this point he's pretty much accustomed to me staring at him and weeping for no apparent reason. 😭 Grateful for this moment in time to hold on, rejoice, and soak it in. #thankyoulord🙏 --

- #Repost @dynamisalliance ・・・ THEY GAVE UP EVERYTHING- "It is, in a way, an odd thing to honor those who died in defense of our country, in defense of us, in wars far away. The imagination plays a trick. We see these soldiers in our mind as old and wise. We see them as something like the Founding Fathers, grave and gray haired. But most of them were boys when they died, and they gave up two lives -- the one they were living and the one they would have lived. When they died, they gave up their chance to be husbands and fathers and grandfathers. They gave up their chance to be revered old men. They gave up everything for our country, for us. And all we can do is remember." - Ronald Reagan #HONOR #EXT17 #everydayismemorialday

- A Letter to My Baby, . Oh, what elation and disbelief surged through my spirit when I learned you were on the way. As we prepared for Easter, the season of new life, my soul was filled with humble awe and wonder. The Author of Life was blessing us with the ultimate gift…YOU! . Sharing the news with your daddy was unforgettable. He laughed and cried and praised God when he learned you were coming…due on his birthday! I worried that people may not understand, so I guarded the miracle of your life like a priceless treasure known only to us. Your siblings prayed for you every day and for your growth and safety. Your sister, Karolina was one of the FIRST to hear the news. She is a special prayer warrior. I knew she would cherish our beautiful secret. . Your first ultrasound brought much trepidation. Would you be okay? My age. My history. Would your tiny heartbeat be there? At six weeks, I was able to glimpse your perfect body complete with the most glorious drumming heartbeat, strong and clear. Every moment I dreamed of you. Every day my love grew. . Oh, my child! You received Jesus in the Holy Eucharist in such glorious places! In Rome, Italy, Padua, and Florence. Daddy and I even prayed for your future and soul under the moonlight of Assisi. . At ten weeks, we were blessed to see you in my womb again. Grandma was there, and how you danced for us! You were growing! . At 11 weeks we learned you might have Down Syndrome. I want you to know that I would gladly have endured anything with you. Jesus tells us to “Be not afraid,” and while mommy’s faith is shaky sometimes, I always know that God is holding me and he’s holding you too. . We were anxious for yet another ultrasound. This time with the news that you are a GIRL! . We also learned that shortly before we gazed upon you, your precious heart stopped beating. . As my belly begins to emerge with the outward sign of your life and morning sickness rages on, you have flown away and left us with the sweetest dream and gift of your perfect soul. . I will carry you for just a little while longer and I want you to know how much I love you.. {continued in comments}

- And so the winter dies with a blast of icy wind Like a mournful cry, it's giving up the ghost again. Another sheet of snow melts away to gold and green Look at Peter go, he's racing to the tomb to see . Where has my Jesus gone? He is not dead, He is risen Risen indeed . And now the flowers bloom like a song of freedom Behold the earth is new, if only for the season And so the seed that died for You becomes a seedling Just put your hand into the wound that bought your healing . And let your heart believe He is not dead, He is risen Risen indeed . And the rain will fall on the furrow It immerses the earth in sorrow Mary, the sun will rise again ☀️ Mary, the sun will rise again ☀️ Daughter, listen, listen Daughter listen, He speaks your name.. -Risen Indeed.

- I know that many of you remember Karolina in your prayers regularly and I just want to sincerely thank you. Yesterday was a GREAT day. She said "It's not working" when my phone battery died. When I was cleaning up the kitchen before bedtime, I heard her crying in the other room. I asked her what was wrong? She answered "hurt toes." I can't express what a BIG deal this is. ~ Before this year, Karolina rarely replied to any direct question and never used more than one word at a time (unless she was singing). Last week, she said "bath"?" I replied, "Tomorrow, sweet girl " and she answered back "Got a bath last night?" These are the first seeds of CONVERSATION! Lord Jesus, for the first time in almost eight years, I can imagine one day having a conversation with my daughter! I always knew she was “in there” and she is finally beginning to emerge, little by little! ~ Today, she gave me direct eye contact with a smile for this photo! An early Mother's Day gift, beyond price. Feeling very grateful to see my daughter bloom into such a beautiful rose. 🌹 Thank you for your prayers for our family and our sweet girl. God bless you! 💐. . . . #autism #lifeisbeautiful #autismawareness #autismmom #asd #specialneeds #autismfamily #speech

- Happy feast of St. Mark! God’s day-planner is better than anything I could ever schedule. He blessed us with a divine appointment at St. Mark’s Basilica in Venice, in the crypt, just steps from the Saint’s tomb. While no photos are allowed in the sprawling church, we were permitted to capture a few images of this exquisite hidden grotto. Many of us were moved to tears. No words. Just a profound feeling of consolation from a Father who loves us so intimately. St. Mark, pray for us!

- The last few days have been a divine whirlwind. Florence, Cinque Terre, and Padua. Many churches do not allow photography. Honestly, I don’t even know if it’s humanly possible to capture the full splendor with a camera anyway. Today we visited Scrovengi Chapel and many in our group loved it even more than the Sistine Chapel (however, no pics). Giotto was a brilliant artist. I was also moved to tears by the basilica of St. Anthony. Many prayers offered there for your intentions. Oh, how He loves us so! . . . . #catholic #pilgrimage #italy #padua #padova #florence #thedavid #travel #catholicchurch #romancatholicchurch #art #middleages #duomo #holiday #vacation
