Four Traditional Catholic Prayers In Latin

Four Traditional Catholic Prayers In Latin

Traditional Catholic Prayers In Latin Latin is the universal language of the church.  It is important for us as Catholics to learn these prayers, and even more so to teach them to our children.  Without the knowledge and proper education of the traditional, conservative teachings of our faith it will be doomed to moral relativism and protestantisation with the next generation.  This is our responsibility as the primary teachers of our children.  Thankfully the truths of our Catholic faith are still…

A July Prayer For Gardens and Orchards

A July Prayer For Gardens and Orchards

July is traditionally the month when the homestead garden really starts to kick into production.  You can really start to see the fruits of your labor!  I found another gem of a prayer in the Rural Life Prayerbook.  In case you haven’t noticed yet I’m really fond of this book, and the traditional Catholic prayers/blessings that were saved for us in it.  Anyway without further ado: A Prayer for Gardens and Orchards Almighty and most merciful God, before our first parents,…

Holy Water- A Means of Spiritual Wealth!

Traditional catholic view on the  power of holy water Holy Water is one of the sacramentals given to us by the Church that many of us partake in at least weekly.   Few really understand the true power and appreciate what a gift Holy Water is.  Catholic prayer, and family holiness are enhanced with the use of this sacred gift.  I was given this fine article from The Mother-in-Law, and I thought I would share it with you as a…

Consecration of the family to the Sacred Heart of Jesus

Consecration of the family to the Sacred Heart of Jesus

June has traditionally been a month dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.  With that in mind I’ve dug up a traditional Catholic prayer for the consecration of the family to The Sacred Heart.  I know it’s a little late in the month, but it’s never too late to make your consecration, or perform a yearly renewal.  This version of this Catholic prayer can be found, along with many others, in the Rural Life Prayerbook published by Tan Books.  This…

Why we homestead…

Why we homestead…

There are a multitude of reason a person would choose to live the homestead lifestyle.  It could be as simple as wanting to make a living off of your land to a deep seeded belief that the world as we know it is coming to an end soon (sort of a Catholic preppers thing), and everything in between.  I believe that for a person to be truly happy, fulfilled and successful living that homestead life there needs to be a…

Opening our hearts to the move…Part III

Opening our hearts to the move…Part III

We drove through Idaho headed toward Dave’s interview.  I had no idea what to expect.  We drove through luscious valleys with farmland growing anything from hops, potatoes and herbs to ranches with race horses, cattle and even elk.  I was in awe at the beauty of Idaho.  From mountains to valleys to desert and rivers we drove.  We drove up this huge grade and as we came over the top it opened up to the prairie.  It was beautiful!  I’ve…

Traditional Catholic Permaculture…. Really?

Traditional Catholic Permaculture…. Really?

Some folks may not know what Permaculture is or why I would go through the trouble of creating an entire post or perhaps series of posts on the subject.  Well I will broach the subject by stating that permaculture techniques are going to be central to our transition, as a family, from the conventional 9-5, working for the “Man”, depending on this Godless, broken system of physical sustenance for our livelihood, to a life of self-sufficiency, based on God’s plans…

Opening our hearts to the move…Part II

Opening our hearts to the move…Part II

It was on this particular morning that I truly submitted my will to God’s will for our family.  Dave and I had been married for just over 8 years with 3 children (the youngest not yet a year old) at that time.  My father, who had passed away the year Dave and I began dating had suffered many strokes.  Toward the end of his life he was in a wheelchair and couldn’t use his right side, lost almost all of…

Opening our hearts to the move…Part I

Opening our hearts to the move…Part I

My husband and I are California natives.  I, myself am a sixth generation and Dave a second generation Californian.  I personally loved California for several reasons.  I liked the warm summers, long growing seasons and anything we needed was close at hand such as shopping, activities and most important, family.  We also had several close priest friends we visited with often that would soon be missed.  I had no intentions of ever leaving until I met my husband in college….
