The Queenship of Mary

Today's feast day is fitting for our first day of school, since our school is named
Our Lady Queen of Angels Academy

From my Mary Day by Day book:

"Your renown spread forth among the nations for your beauty, which was perfect since I placed my 
splendor upon you."
Ezek 16:14

Reflection.  Mary consented to be the Mother of the Eternal Word.
At that very moment, she merited to be made the Queen of the world and all creatures.
-St Alphonsus Liguori

Prayer.  O Mary, you are our Queen.  Reign over al hearts by the queenly power of your love, so that the Kingdom of your Divine Son may come  upon earth.

  3. Thinking of you on the first day of school.

    I had one kid sleep till 1030am this morning. What a shock for that kid when he goes back to school next week!

    I LOVE OUR LADY! Lady Queen of Peace bless Jamie and her beautiful children. Watch over them. Guide them to your son.

  4. Happy first day of school and celebrating Our Lady's Queenship. How could you go wrong with a name for your school like that? Love it! Thank you, again, for your prayers and God bless your days ahead:)

  5. Beautiful post! Happy first day of school.

    BTW...just wanted to say "thank you" for the comment you left another blogger with regards to "gestational diabetes" mothers.

    I developed gestational 3x and it is misery! (Offer it up..no?!!!) Nothing is more frustrating than developing GD after eating well for nearly 28 weeks! Unfortunately (or fortunately...depending on one's outlook!), my age was more of a factor than my initial weight..although not so true by baby #3! Being 40+ and pregnant is a blessing...even with GD.

  7. Hi Jamie, that was a perfect prayer and reflection for the first day of school! My son started today at our local Catholic School for the first time. He'd been attending a public school up until now so it should be interesting to hear his observations when I pick him up today!

    I hope you don't mind but I tagged you in a fun Patron Saint Meme. It's about what is close to your heart and what you'd like to be remembered and praised for by God when you meet Him!
