I'm happy to say that we were able to put together another of our Gazettes. Yay! This means our lives are getting back to normal and on schedule. You can download or print the gazette here.
We are working on another Gazette that will be up and available to download or print in time for December 1st. It's been awhile since we have been able to make one but hope that we can keep them up again. A blessed Advent season to all!

For those of you who have asked if we were sharing our Catholic calendar again this year. The answer is yes. You can find it below and on our download page.
This is not an official calendar of the Catholic Church. It was put together by a lay person for her own family using the Saint Andrew Daily Missal, Imprimatur 1951, The Catholic Girls Guide, Imprimatur 1908 and With God, Imprimatur 1911. If you would please bring any mistakes to my attention at: firstname.lastname@example.org, I would appreciate it! God bless you all!
Please note: All prayers used in this calendar are from imprimatured sourses prior to 1958. Most of them well before that date.
Father de Ravignon, S.J., in one of his famous exhortations, says:
“Believe me, my dear friends, believe an experience ripened by thirty years in the sacred ministry. I do here affirm that all deceptions, all spiritual deficiencies, all miseries, all falls, all faults, and even the most serious wanderings off of the right path, all proceed from this single source - a want of constancy in prayer. Live the life of prayer; learn to bring everything, to change everything into prayer - pains and trials and temptations of all kinds. “Pray in the calm, pray in the storm. Pray on awaking, and pray during the daytime. Going and coming, pray. Tired out and distracted, pray. Whatsoever your repugnance may be, pray. Pray, that you may learn to pray. ‘Teach us, O Lord, how to pray.’” “’But I cannot pray.’ That is heresy. Yes, you can always pray. If you feel a disgust, nay, a horror of prayer, pray on, pray in spite of yourself, against yourself. Beg for the courage in prayer which our agonizing Saviour merited for you by His pangs in Gethsemani and upon Calvary. Pray, for prayer is our salvation.”

The purpose of this website is to share the beautiful Catholic resources that God has so richly blessed us with. All texts unless they are my own words have their sources quoted, and most of them are in the public domain.
