Coming Up in the Liturgical Year: ADVENT! Yesterday marked the new liturgical year and first day of Advent. It was also the first day we used the new English translation of the Mass. I’ll do a post about our Advent preparations soon with some good links for Advent resources.

My dear friend Claire shared this song with me. It’s “When I Grow Up” by the lovely ladies of First Aid Kit.
A Blog I Follow: Karen Edmisten. Karen is a Catholic author, wife, and homeschooling mother. I LOVE her book on the Holy Rosary and I want to get her devotional book about the Blessed Virgin. She has great ideas and insights on the liturgical year and I love reading quotes from her daughters who are adorable bookworms. They all sound like kindred spirits. I would like to grab a cup of coffee with her.
