Faith


The bond of father and mother in marriage gives a child his first sense
of belonging.  He makes a connection from his own father to God the Father
and is awash in gratitude for what is his, if only his small family unit.
A stranger visited our home recently and paid me a great complement, "Look at all the children...but it's so calm!"

I watch my children play all day and even though they are usually not quiet, they are in fact remarkably calm.

Once when my oldest daughter was badly injured, I was amazed that she was so calm!  For me this was nerve-racking.  And it was a bit overwhelming when I realized the source of her calmness: she trusted me.

I tell them that they will feel better soon and they believe me.  I tell them that it's going to be okay and they believe me.  I tell them that God is here and they believe me.  I marvel at the innocence of a child.  I crave the purity of this innocence, that I might strengthen my own Faith in God.

I too trusted my parents as a child.  I was calm living in a comfortable and healthy environment.  My parents taught me a level of self-denial and sacrifice that helped me transition to the responsibilities and hardships of adulthood.  And it taught me something else:

We must not ever leave the calmness of our childhood!  We must continue to practice this kind of perfect Faith.  God loves the Faith of children.  And since virtue is an action, not a feeling, we are all capable of having Faith!
Look at the calmness of a child and see innocence,
see Heaven, see God.
And marvel at this most precious Faith!
Painting by Murillo

Sadly, there are children in this world who are taught lies.  They are told depressing atheistic ideas and indoctrinated with errors of social structure and filthy lifestyles of impurity that ruin their childhood and usually their lives.  Children are born with an admirable innocence and heart naturally turned to God.  The destruction of these priceless qualities is the worst child abuse!  It is the curse of children born out of wedlock.  It is the most vital obligation of Christian family life: protect the innocence of children!

The bond of father and mother in marriage gives a child his first sense of belonging.  He makes a connection from his own father to God the Father and is awash in gratitude for what is his, if only his small family unit.  Responsibility is born along with loyalty, trust, honor and Faith...

Then the Faith of a child will grow into the Faith of a man, a Faith that is developed by grace and fortified by practice of virtue.  This Faith will be so strong and invincible that it will be capable of reaching God.

Look at the calmness of a child and see innocence, see Heaven, see God.  And marvel at this most precious Faith!

True Motherhood Will Clash With Feminist Theme on March 8



I am very pleased to share with you that Lady Day will take place again this year on March 8!  Please plan a tea party on this day and invite good ladies who work to restore the dignity and role of the Catholic lady in civilization.  It is also requested that we visit a Marian Shrine to pray in reparation and for the work of Christian mothers.



International Women’s Day (March 8) is upon us once again. Feminists will use the occasion to push their radical agenda.
This year’s feminist slogan is Push for Progress which advocates “gender parity,” another way to destroy the natural distinction and complementarity of the two sexes.
In contrast, Lady Day is also celebrated on March 8th.
This year's Lady Day will honor the sublime and sacrificial calling of motherhood, both physical and spiritual; a woman's most noble vocation in life.
It is being carried out under the noble patronage of Her Highness Duchess Pilar Oldenburg Mendez de Vigo and Lowenstein...

A Good Article: The Fedora for All Seasons

What good thoughts on the character and beauty of hats in civilization!  I really enjoyed this article today:

READ THE ENTIRE ARTICLE HERE


"This little incident gave me much food for thought. I pondered our conversation and became more convinced of how society today has been impoverished by things like the decline of the hat!
How much has been lost in the modern concrete jungles we have constructed where buildings all look the same and people wear the same clothing that fads dictate. Personality and individuality are gone in a world where torn jeans, shorts, flip flops, tee shirts and sweat suits have become suitable for all occasions whether a birthday party, funeral, wedding, or Mass on Sunday.
What role does the hat play in a society? It plays an essential role. It enhances the identity of each individual and shows the vast variety of vocations, occupations, and roles God called each one to follow...
So, if someone were to ask me if using a hat matters, my answer would be, “Imagine a world with no hats at all. Imagine a Winston Churchill without his Top Hat. Imagine a Queen Elizabeth without her diadem. Imagine a Lord Nelson without his bicorn, or imagine a modest Mexican farmer without his sombrero.”

The Demonic Nature of Vulgarity and the Graceful Nature of Sacrifice

We see that like Lucifer, pride and rebellion drive this march on;
the demonic nature of vulgarity becomes clear.
The Women's March wants pride, selfishness and chaos to reign.  It's mission is a list of conflicting causes only united by anarchical ends.

This radical movement is comprised of feminists, abortion and birth control activists, LGBT lunatics, environmentalists, even Satanists: ideologies that hate objective truth, responsibility, higher law, Christian civilization, the Church and ultimately God.

The Women's March uses extreme vulgarity with little attempt to disguise it's loathing for all things true, good and beautiful.

The sacrificial love of motherhood is the highest
capability of woman's nature.
Hateful lies against the order of God repulse the man who defends Christian civilization.  Envy of power moves women to shout shocking obscenities in the streets and murder children in the womb.  We see that like Lucifer, pride and rebellion drive this march on; the demonic nature of vulgarity becomes clear.

The Catholic lady is of course one who opposes anarchy and upholds the law of God.  She delights in God's creation and loves very much the place of woman.  She appreciates the refined beauty of traditional femininity, realizing that truth and goodness naturally build her up.  She knows the vocation of the Catholic lady is hidden, sacrificial and by this sanctified.  The sacrificial love of motherhood- either physical or otherwise- is the highest capability of women's nature.  The Catholic lady then desires to give her life to her children, to civilization and in this sacrificial act is repeatedly ennobled.  In it, we find the graceful nature of beauty and sacrifice.

Feminism: Just Another Lie!

In today's world we treat the symptom instead of the problem.
We don't want to waste any time away from the fun.
In today's world we treat the symptom instead of the problem.  We don't want to waste any time away from the fun.

For example, the situation that surrounds us is not pretty.  Women have been sexually harassed, even raped and they are upset.  But do we question the root of the problem?  Or do we mask it with emotional drugs: shallowly tweet #MeToo, wear a black gown to represent solidarity with female victims, and naively proclaim the time is up for evil men?

Many of these hypocritical women return the next day to making sexually perverse television programs or to living an amoral party girl lifestyle.

But what if we did get to the root of the problem?  What if we discovered obscene behavior, fashions and entertainment contribute to sexual harassment?  What if we discovered egoism leads to corruption?  What if we discovered children without rules grow into adults without responsibility?  What if we discovered broken marriages and irregular families increase child abuse?  And what if without God, moral standards really have no basis?  What if civilization only exists because of Christianity?  What if there is no such thing as "my truth", but only "the truth"?

And the truth is that men and women are different.  Feminism is a lie.

It is time for the fundamental differences of men and women to be recognized.  The physical and psychological strengths and weaknesses of the two sexes respectively need to be be incorporated into the design of society and institutions.  To attain excellence in any realm, it is logical to build upon natural qualities.  But we ignore truth!  This is idiotic.  The world today becomes a subjective playground where every whim and fantasy can be indulged.  Look at the number of these sexual crimes, abortion, transgenderism and same-sex "marriage"!  Lacking a higher law- or any reality at all- it is no wonder that we deteriorate...

No one will address the root of the problem:
without God, there is no will to practice
restraint and sacrifice in the vocation.
The enemies of God hand us stones to cast at civilization.  Hypocritical cries of sexual harassment are answered with anarchical cries of feminism, a prescription that failed years ago.  We are told to smash powerful men and bring down the natural order.  But these radical egalitarian and atheistic ideas ultimately drive us toward the exclusive worship of self- which justifies sexual harassment!  No one will address the root of the problem: without God, there is no will to practice restraint and sacrifice in the vocation.

The most basic institution is that of the family, under assault as women swallow the lie that they must leave the home to be powerful!  Feminists won't quiet down long enough to hear a secret whispered centuries ago: the hand that rocks the cradle is the hand that rules the world.

Because I can assure you that feminism's time will be up too!  It will only live long enough to be trampled by the next movement that hates the design of God.

Did the Three Kings come to your house?  They left some more treats here on Saturday!  Epiphany is such a special feast day and one we love to celebrate!

We have a mysterious virus going around here which may or may not be fifths disease...I do think we were exposed to it recently.  They all have different symptoms of colds/belly aches/fevers/lethargic.  We'll see if the bright red cheeks appear.  I like to figure these things out so I can treat it better since I always feel so sorry for sick children!  Thomas has slept on the couch for almost 3 days!

Come visit my Dress Shop here: The Catholic Lady Shop.  More uniquely designed items added daily!  I'm working on ladies medium weight (Winter) skirts in many sizes, listed in the next two weeks...


Anyway, I have no pictures of my outfits because my husband is working around the clock to get people heat (he manages an HVAC technical department).  The kids haven't seen him all week!  The furnaces around here were not designed to work in this extensive below 0' weather so he needs to go figure out ways to get them running (he's really, really smart)!


Here is what Becky is wearing today:







Dress- Handmade
Socks- Laura Ashley
Shoes- The Children's Place



Epiphany!

Happy New Year to all of my dear readers!  It is the year of our Lord 2018, a year when we see the world coming to crisis in many ways.  The horrors of abortion, legalized same-sex "marriage", children deprived of the basic right of having married biological fathers and mothers, these same children taught lies of perverse sexual sins and depressing atheistic ideas, Satanism taught in schools, extensive chaos in the Church and among countries...are everywhere.  This is a year to fight!  We must thank Our Lady of Fatima for the great honor she has shown us to see the evils in the world today and to be able to fight for God.


We are still recovering from an exciting weekend over here and trying to get back to school...  It's freezing outside (literally below 0 with the wind chill) so we're kind of homebound until the weather becomes decent again.  It is very messy with Christmas everywhere and actually that makes me happy when I come downstairs every morning and see the mess!  The children just go right back to their new toys and games!  This is the happiness of a big family, lots of gifts from the grandparents, Uncles and Aunts to keep them busy!

Here are a very few pictures of the week:


I know this is boring wearing all black.  But I think the girls' coats are cute at least!  They are all given to us by friends.





Oliver is growing up in some ways, and in others is still such a baby!  Let them grow at their own pace I say.




This is what my week has been like...





THANKS FOR VISITING!  HAPPY NEW YEAR to everyone!
