In Honor of the Month for St. Joseph

>> Thursday, March 19, 2009

Today's guest article comes from Totus Tuus Family & Catholic Homeschool and was originally published on March 10, 2009

March is the month the church honors St. Joseph - the man closest to Christ. Today, March 10th, we can start a novena to St. Joseph to culminate on his solemnity.God gave us quite a role model in this beloved and "just" saint he chose to protect his Son and Our Lady.

From Women for Faith and Family we read...

Pope Pius IX placed the whole Church under the Patronage of Saint Joseph in 1870.
In 1989, Pope John Paul II reflected deeply on the life and witness of Saint Joseph in Redemptoris Custos "Guardian of the Redeemer" (q.v).

Among the saints known to have had particular devotions to Saint Joseph are Saint Bernard, Saint Thomas Aquinas, Saint Gertrude, Saint Bridget of Sweden, Saint Alphonsus and Saint Teresa of Avila.

In 2005, Pope Benedict XVI said that in a world which is "too noisy, and does not encourage reflection and listening to the voice of God", Christians should "allow themselves to be 'infected' by the silence of St Joseph".

Also humble, St. Joseph dedicated his whole life to the interests of Jesus - an example of faith, trust, he was obedient to God's call. I have prayed that the men in my family reflect St. Joseph's character to...

- Protect the unborn

- Be unselfish husbands/ Authentic fatherhood

- Serve God and His Church/ hard-working providers

- Devote themselves to The Blessed Virgin and the chastity of their vocation

No great words or deeds necessary as the Bible in Matthew 1 :18 notes. Just an example of holiness in being lovingly faithful, placing the Lord and Blessed Mother first. How could we not want our husbands and sons, our priests to not be JUST like St. Joseph?!

I hold St. Joseph dear to me and my family and have felt an affinity to him from very early on in my reversion to the faith. As a mother of 3 sons, I like to have our family watch this inspiring DVD on St. Joseph every March. (You can rent it at Netflix.)
Totus Tuus Family & Catholic homeschool blog has focused on homeschooling/family life, traditional Catholicism and pro-life issues since May of 2007. It's author "+JMJ+" attempts to post everyday and finds it difficult to not include a picture with every story.

New Blog Roll Members - March 13th

>> Friday, March 13, 2009

Here is a listing of our newest members since our last update. Be sure to visit at least a couple of them, and let them know that we sent you!


Are you interested in having your articles published here?

>> Wednesday, March 11, 2009

In 2007, I started Catholic Mothers Online as a place to be the hub for the Catholic Mothers Online blog roll.

At the beginning of 2009, I had a new vision for this blog. Although I still think of it as the hub of the Catholic Mothers Online blog roll (which is such a great listing to find Catholic Moms who have blogs of all kinds!), it is my intention to begin to publish articles here about twice a week with content of interest to Catholic women!

This can be anything from how to celebrate St. Patrick's Day with kids to a reflection on Lenten sacrifices to finding ways to be active at your parish to a review of a great Catholic book or product. There are so many options! Here's the thing -- I really would love for it to mostly be guest articles, not just writing my thoughts or practices.

Articles can even be reprinted from your own blog, and you will retain the copyright to your article.

Articles can be short tips or ideas, or they can be an involved, picture-heavy tutorial on creating a traditional dish for Christmas. Just send it along!

If you are interested in having pieces published here (they can have been published before on your own blog), please drop Angie an email! ( catholicmothers {at} comcast {dot} net )


Working on a New Design

In my thought to do a makeover in this blog -- making it both a place with articles a couple of times a week (hopefully -- depending on exactly what we have submitted, though we do have articles now), as well as being the home of the blog roll, I thought it was important to have a little bit of an actual visual makeover too.

I'm still in the midst of doing this though, but have to step away from the computer. I will keep working on it, and hope to have it all finished up by Thursday night!

Thanks for all the support!

New Blog Roll Members - March 5th

>> Friday, March 6, 2009

I'm so excited that is finally back up and running! Because of this, I have been able to add so many people that have been waiting to be added to the roll for many months! (Those that were signed up before I had to close down sign ups.)

On a quick note, is now putting an ad bar at the top of the webpage each time you click through a link on a blog roll. However, the ads can be removed if a $20/year subscription fee is paid. I am hoping that some people might find it in this hearts to donate at least a portion of this money. There is a link in the sidebar now to donate through Paypal. I know money is tight for everyone right now, but even a couple of dollars would help!

Okay, so on to our new members:


Sign Ups Open Again!

>> Thursday, March 5, 2009

We are so excited that is back up and running! I've been busy adding and deleting blogs today.

Because is back up, we have opened sign ups back up!

Also -- watch for big changes here! My goal is to not have this be just the hub for the blog roll, but to possibly publish a couple of posts per week about Catholic topics. Anything from attending adoration to how to celebrate St. Patrick's Day with your kiddos.

Here's the thing about these posts, I don't want to write them all. I thought it would be so much better to have a steady stream of guest posts. I'm hoping that it can work out. If you are interested in guest writing about a Catholic topic here at Catholic Mothers Online, please drop me an email! It can even be something republished from your own blog!

Oh, and one more thing! Watch for a new blog design over the next few weeks! I'm pretty darn excited about that!
