Pope Francis on education.

I don't think I could agree more with Pope Francis! I love how plainly he speaks, he is the "People
s Pope". No offense to anyone, but we need things dumbed down a lot (and our Pope is not dumb) but he knows how to talk to people, so the majority of adults including myself- who can only think and reason on grade school levels can understand. Check out his comments here!

My latest Mass kit find

I pretty much figured I was done collecting Mass kit parts...until tonight. I found a "ciborium" for $3.99 at the Goodwill.  Brenden squealed when he saw it, he can't say much still but he knew what it was for! {I was pretty sure stuff like this didn't exist at the Goodwills, because it is so unusual.} It's plated silver, and obviously was some sort of decorative award for someone, it has "Appreciation Alcott 1979" engraved in small letters on the side- but you can hardly see it. What's even more exciting, this matches a silver plated chalice we already had. I wish we had a gold/brass colored ciborium to match our gold set of chalices, so I will have to keep looking.

Oh and here are some cute pictures of the boys using the Mass kit. 

Happy Feast of Our Lady of Fatima!
