Traditional Catholic moms-spring 2010 - Page 9

post #161 of 166
summer is definately busy! my older 2 are in ccd every morning for 3 wks in June and it is insane. (We had special permission to do a home study for the first week as we had a trip planned and then just attend 2 wks but it is really exhausting)
ds3 was in vacation bible school all week and loved it but it is like driving the kids to school every morning except it doesn't last as long as school so right back around to pick them up again.
then in the afternoon my 2 older kiddos have therapy appts every day for their spd (sensory processing disorder) some days we are there for several hours and some days we are at 2 different facilities for appts.
then swim lessons in the evenings. We signed up for 2 2wk sessions and the kids are doing really well so I am glad we did it but I am fried.
ds 2 had 5ths disease at the end of may which is no big deal but not good when you are pg. I am having symptoms now so had to have some blood testing done to see if I have it and then they will do another test in four weeks if it is determined that I did indeed have it than they will want to "monitor' the baby. It increases the risk of mc by 10% if the baby does indeed contract it so... if you ladies could pray for us I would really appreciate it.
I am 9 1/2 wks today and so far everything is going well (except for the 5ths disease). I will see my midwife shortly after 12 wks to hear the heartbeat and dh and I are both finally settling in to the idea of another baby.
I am still looking for a job. Had a job offer on sunday which was absolutely perfect and they e-mailed on wed. that they had changed their mind so still looking and can use prayers for that as well.
Wow. That was long Hope everyone is doing well.

I'm leaving for a retreat tomorrow.....a 5 day Ignation retreat. It will be very nice and quiet. I am looking forward to having time to just get my spiritual life back on track.

I am asking prayers for clarity of heart, mind and soul.

Hey everyone! Haven't been on in awhile and wanted to drop by

Cherry: Is that book just a study on different salvation philosophies, or does it talk about the "no salvation outside of the Church" teaching? My husband and I have been doing a lot of studying about that teaching and how Vatican II kind of, uh, threw it out the window. I have an awesome link to a homily by St. Leonard regarding this topic if you are interested. It really puts things in perspective.... I can honestly say it changed me.

the boysmama: We receive on the tongue only. I was raised in a charasmatic parish and received in the hand until about 2 yrs ago. After I started to learn about the Latin Mass, I came to realize that receiving in the hand is extremely inappropriate. Traditionally, on the priest is to touch the host because his hands have been purified. There is more to it than that, but that's the basic reason. I could never imagine receiving in the hand ever again. Heck, I kneel when I receive now, even if no one else does.

charbeau: I know this is late, but congrats on the baptism!

My Dh and I have been doing a lot of reading and studying lately. The stuff we are learning is amazing and sad and a little scary. Some time ago we started to be attracted to the Latin Mass, and things have just kind of progressed from there. The more you learn, the more you want to learn. At this point we are doing an in-depth look into the Society of Saint Pius X as well as the sedevacanists. As of now, I think the SSPX is correct. I wish we had a parish near us, but we don't. The sedevacanists are kind of hard to understand since they have no unity, which is a sign for me (at this point) that they are not correct.

I'm very early in a pregnancy and would appreciate any prayers you all could send my way. I have a history of m/c and the first trimester is always scary for me.

God bless! Have a great Sunday! We are traveling an hour north to Huntsville, AL to go to a Latin Mass
