We have the Eucharist our most profound gift.  This gift of Jesus himself is life-giving to us in our vocations. We have the sacraments of our faith, which give us strength. What could be better? The Sacraments are Jesus alive within us through His grace and through the gifts the Catholic Church offers us! The Sacraments join us so much closer to the Lord and as Catholic moms to the mission God has given us. As I grow older, I am appreciating these facts even more. I am referring to the gifts of our Faith. I think the older we become, the more we realize just how special it is to know, love and serve Jesus Christ and His Church. On top of all of this, being a Catholic mother and wife is the most wonderful vocation because we live life out with Jesus by our sides. We also have Our Lady with us, as our role model and intercessor. So fantastic. As readers of this great on-line family at CatholicMom.com, we have many blessings to share with the whole world. On a personal note, as a writer for this publication, I feel honored and blessed. If you have the gift of writing and you love your faith as a Catholic mom, consider joining our team! It is Special Because ... The vocation of motherhood is a blessing beyond words. We come together at CatholicMom.com to share our faith, our love of our families, and most importantly our love of God and the Trinity. The strength of our prayers and love is multiplied when we can read and share together our experiences as Catholic mothers. We are doing our best to love our families and teach our kids the importance of faith and putting God first in their lives. These lessons are not only for our children, they enrich our own faith-lives to get to know Jesus even more, his Blessed Mother and also the countless saints in our Church. I have found life is filled with more and more enlightenment and joy as we come together to read and pray together. I love the multiple features of our site at CatholicMom.com. Not only does our site offer great articles of faith, but excellent resources such as book reviews, Gospel Reflections, and much more. I hope readers will consider checking out the other links on CatholicMom.com. It is a great "getaway" to read an article to enhance our faith and family life. And it's all right HERE! Prayer I will offer a prayer for friends of CatholicMom.com and for this publication: "LORD, thank you for the awesome gift of CatholicMom.com to all of us who are mothers and wives living out our vocations. Wherever we are in this journey, we thank you for your Holy Spirit and for the light that shines in our hearts each day to bring love and joy to our families and all those we encounter. We ask you to help us to strive to make each moment count to love and serve you more each day of our lives. LORD, I also pray for the writers, editors, and all those involved in the ministry of CatholicMom.com. Help all of us to bring you to the forefront in all that we do. We ask all of this in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen."
