I just spent a pleasurable afternoon with many remarkable women. Our local Catholic homeschool support group, St. Margaret Clitherow, had it's planning meeting here at Anchovy Meadows under the oak tree today. The Domestic Church is alive and well in Midcoast Maine. Watch out kids, the moms are pumped up and eager to teach you another year of ALL-YOU-NEED-TO-KNOW! We span the continuum from veteran homeschoolers with kids in College and married to moms who only have little ones and are just starting out. Every one of these precious ladies are laying down their lives daily to transmit the Holy Faith to their kids in a culture that is not only indifferent to Christ but aggresivelly seeks to eradicate Him from our land. They inspire me to be the best woman of faith I can be. I am so grateful for their presence in my life.
May our heavenly Mother and St. Margaret pray for us that we would have the strength (and, yes, the patience) to do His Holy Will as we educate our children for eternity. May the glory be His alone!
Have a wonderful day and an exciting school year!
