"The soul that perseveres in the exercise of prayer, however many sins, temptations and falls of a thousand kinds the devil may oppose to it, may hold it for certain, after all, that the Lord will sooner or later rescue it from danger and guide it into the harbor of salvation."--St. Teresa
"Souls that have no habit of prayer are like a lame and paralytic body, which, though it has hands and feet, cannot use them. Therefore, to abandon prayer seems to me the same thing as to lose the straight road; for as prayer is the gate through which all the graces of God come to us, when this is closed, I do not know how we can have any."--St. Teresa
"Prayer well made gives much pleasure to the angels, and therefore it is much assisted by them; it gives great displeasure to the devils, and therefore is much persecuted and disturbed by them."--St. John Chrysostom

I just have to share this story...
Last week we went to a presentation that our new priest gave on the Traditional Mass.
He intends to start offering it the evening of September 14.
Anyway, my girls wore their skirts, as they always do now in public, and several of the other girls were in their lovely skirts, too.
A few of the girls were not, however, but noticed the different attire.
They asked if they were supposed to wear skirts, to which one of the boys,
a 16 year old Legion of Mary member, replied,
"They're wearing skirts because they want to look pretty."
Yesterday was Justin's 9th birthday. He wanted a watermelon cake--not a cake that looks like a watermelon, but an actual watermelon instead of a baked cake. We're not big cake lovers around here, but that may change after our oldest masters the art of cake decorating.
To his pleasant suprise he received a Gerber field knife from mom and dad.
His two older brothers gave him the book "The Squire and the Scroll," a beautiful story about the five rules a man (or a woman) must follow if he wishes to remain pure of heart. All the kids loved this story.
He also received a pair of digitized junior cammies from mom and dad...
And, of course, no Schamelot birthday could be complete without a Western--this from his two older sisters.
It was a happy birthday...
