Links for Homeschooling Mothers

Below are some links that homeschooling mothers may find interesting. They were sent to us by a Resistance mother in the States. Some of the links include free materials, others must be purchased.
 
The first website contains absolutely beautiful ideas for Catholic handwriting projects.

Prayer for Priests

 

Prayer Campaign for Priests

 

We would like to encourage everyone in the Resistance, especially the children, to take to heart the need to pray for our priests. Let us rise to the occasion and let us all make a pledge to daily say the Prayer for Priests and to ask God to bless our priests.

 

“O Jesus, Eternal High Priest, keep Thy priests within the shelter of Thy Sacred Heart where none may harm them.

Keep unstained their anointed hands which daily touch Thy Sacred Body. Keep pure their lips, daily purpled by Thy Precious Blood.

 

Keep pure and unworldly their hearts, sealed with the sublime mark of Thy glorious priesthood.
May they grow in love and confidence in Thee, and protect them from the contagion of the world.

 

With the power of changing bread and wine, grant them also the power of changing hearts.
Bless their labours with abundant fruit and grant them at the last the crown of eternal life.

 

Amen.

 

O Lord grant us priests,
O Lord grant us holy priests,
O Lord grant us many holy priests
O Lord grant us many holy religious vocations. St. Pius X, pray for us.”

 

Please send your prayer pledges to the Recusant and let us flood Heaven with our prayers.

Please make a special effort to encourage everyone who attends the Resistance Masses to make this pledge.

Spiritual Bouquet of Actions

A Spiritual Bouquet of Actions

 

for the Resistance in General
and for Bishop Williamson in Particular

 

We would like to propose a spiritual bouquet for the constancy and growth of the Resistance in general and for Bishop Richard Williamson in particular. This spiritual bouquet will consist not solely of prayers, though, nor will it have a definite end. It will consist of all the posts we put up on the Christ the King Youth Project, and it will be a perpetual bouquet. We propose that we make a special offering to God of everything that we post–be it a prayer, picture, drawing, painting, article, photo, composition, etc.
 

We are taking this idea from the words of the Morning Offering prayers, for example, those of the Fatima Morning Offering Prayer (emphasis added):
 

“O JESUS, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I offer Thee my prayers, works, joys, and sufferings, all that this day may bring, be they good or bad: for the love of God, for the conversion of sinners, and in reparation for all the sins committed against the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.”
 

Everyone–from little children to great, great, great grand-parents–is welcome to participate in this Spiritual Bouquet!
 

Periodically, we will send the link to the Christ the King Youth Project to His Excellency and to Fathers Pfeiffer and Hewko and other priests of the Resistance.

An Original Poem from a Young Catholic

 

For sale. 1 toad for sale! 1 toad for sale!

1 prying and pining young croaking toad for sale!

I’m really not kidding, so who’ll he be missing?

Do I hear a cricket? A ripple? A little kissy?

Oh, isn’t there, isn’t there any one fly who will stop on by this old toad for sale,

This prying and pining young toad for sale?

A Lenten Poem for Children

Perhaps…
 
Dear God, I wonder, when You climbed
The hill of Calvary—
Where were the children that You used
To take upon Your knee?
Where were they?  In among the
    crowd?
And did they, too, not care
What happened to You God, dear God,
But only came to stare?
Where were the children that You
    loved?
They do not seem to be
Around as You begin to climb
The hill of Calvary!
O God I wish that I had been
A child that day! I might
Have done some little thing for You
To make the Cross more light!
I might have given You a glass
Of water on the way—
I might have whispered, as You
    passed,
“I love You so today!”
I might have done this—and yet—O!
Perhaps I would have hid
Among the people and done just
What other children did?
