As we move past the feasts of All Souls and All Saints we move into the season of Thanksgiving (especially for us here in the US).  This is the beginning of the secular holiday season, where folks are out spending freely, putting up twinkling lights, and giant inflatable snowmen, Grinch, reindeer, whatever…you name it!  Well, before we go into all of that hoopla lets take a second to remember the blessings the Lord has bestowed upon us for the entire year.  As a…

Homestead Happenings August 2015

Well it’s official, we’ve got our first intern here at the Traditional Catholic Homestead!   OK, well he’s not actually an intern, he’s my brother…. but he’s here and he’s going to be helping me out with a ton of projects.  Some are really cool, and some are relatively mundane.  We’re going to be moving the chicken coup and setting up the new runs with rotating paddocks, upgrading the solar panels (did I mention the homestead is 100% off grid?),…

Traditionally the Feast of the Assumption is celebrated on the 15th of August every year.  This month I’m trying to get the prayers out a little early so we have time to properly prepare for this important Feast Day.  It’s proper to celebrate such an important day with some form of self denial, reflection, prayer, attendance of the Holy Mass, and perhaps a little celebration.  Here I’ve found a traditional Catholic prayer for the feast of the Assumption of Mary…
