Church of the Home for Saturday, March 9

Women's History Month: Celebrating Mother Cabrini


To emphasize the accomplishments of women, March has been designated as Women's History Month. To help celebrate this month, we reflect on the women in our lives who have been inspirations. We look to the women we've known personally and the women who we've never met but have heard their stories.


In celebration of Women's History Month, a new movie was recently released about Saint Frances Cabrini, also known as Mother Cabrini. Eventually becoming the first American saint, her story is one of great inspiration and deep faith.


Mother Cabrini’s life was marked by challenges and triumphs. Despite facing initial obstacles and rejection, Mother Cabrini’s determination and unwavering faith propelled her forward on a divine path of service and love. Through the establishment of 67 institutions, including schools, hospitals, and orphanages, Mother Cabrini’s work touched the lives of many.


Today, as we reflect on Mother Cabrini’s enduring legacy, her cherished words resonate: “I can do all things in Him who strengthens me,” serving as a testament to the resilience and faith that guided her mission.


Who are the women who have made a difference in your life? Take time this month to celebrate them as a Church of the Home.

  • Learn more about the women who inspire you - women of the past and women currently in your life.

  • Thank the special women in your life with notes, meals, or any appropriate gesture.

  • Pray for women near and far; pray to women in heaven.


A Prayer for Women's History

We remember that March is Women's History Month.

Thank you for all the cherished women in our lives and in our histories:

mothers, sisters, friends and neighbors.

God, may women across the globe continue to be empowered,

knowing the love you offer.

READINGS FOR THIS WEEKEND’S MASSES



VIRTUALLY SUNDAY REFLECTION

God's love extends to the entire world and all of creation, not just specific groups or individuals. As sacramental people, we are called to love and care for everything and everyone, regardless of their differences. Our mission as believers is to follow Jesus' example of love. Join Tony as he reflects on this weekend's scripture readings.


Auditio Divina

Drawing upon the steps of Lectio Divina, Auditio Divina brings this ancient prayer practice into today’s world. It breaks open the lyrics of modern songs to help individuals listen with heart. 


Katie and Tony break open the song "You Raise Me Up" by Josh Groban for the Fourth Sunday of Lent.


Lyrics:

You raise me up

So I can stand on mountains

You raise me up

To walk on stormy seas

I am strong

When I am on your shoulders

You raise me up

To more than I can be

Either that's a balloon or the biggest blueberry. Ruby's not so sure if she should play with it or take a big bite.
