When you first open your eyes in the morning, make the sign of the cross and say a little prayer. I like to say, "Blessed are you, Lord God of all creation!" Say it silently if you must, so you don't disturb anyone, but say it with fervor in your heart. It feels so good.
Then before you get out bed, gently place your hand over your sweetheart's heart and silently ask the Holy Family and all the angels and saints to pray that his or her needs throughout the day will be met. Ask the Holy Spirit to guide your spouse, and ask Him to guide you as well, so you both can live God's will by saying all the little yeses asked of you throughout the day. Seal it with a kiss.
This blog's mission is simple--to encourage moms who are married to non-Catholics and raising their children in the Faith. If you know a mom who needs a little encouragement in continuing her efforts, I would be delighted if you would share Kathleen's Catholic with her. Thank you!
