A Little About Our Lady, Undoer of Knots

Alrighty,

*cracks knuckles*

(Actually, *just hurts fingers trying to crack knuckles*)

(And I lied to you. I can and actually did, crack my knuckles)

(Anyway)


Tomorrow we begin our first novena of May!

The Novena to Our Lady, Undoer of Knots!


......







But who is she?


All You Lovely Readers: Well, obviously, it's another title for Our Lady, but come on, Kat. Give us DETAILS!


Well, actually I was looking for better details explaining her and found this lovely article over at Mary, Undoer of Knots.com.

So, here is the link: TA DA!!!! 

But I'm also just going to copy and paste part of it here for you all, ok?

"EVE BY HER DISOBEDIENCE, TIED THE KNOT OF DISGRACE FOR THE HUMAN RACE; WHEREAS MARY, BY HER OBEDIENCE, UNDID IT"                                                         -Saint Irenaeus                    
"But what are these knots?They are the problems and struggles that we face for which we do not 
see a solution. Knots of discord with your family, lack of understa…

Book Review: Sylvester or The Wicked Uncle by Georgette Heyer

"Sylvester or The Wicked Uncle" by Georgette Heyer 

This book!

*GASP*

I finished it last Sunday. Monday morning actually. Because, yes! It IS a stay up until 3 AM kind of book. If you liked Pride and Prejudice, you NEED to read this book. It's....it's.....

I can't even explain it right now, so I'll just post the blurb from the back on here, ok? 

Sylvester, Duke of Salford, has exacting requirements for a bride. Then he meets Phoebe Marlow, a young lady with literary aspirations, and suddenly life becomes very complicated. She meets none of his criteria, and even worse, she has written a novel that is sweeping through the ton and causing all kinds of gossip... and he's the main character!
*sound of me gasping like a dying fish on the floor.*

Please, PLEASE read it and comment below about whether or not you liked it!

P.S. Lia REALLY needs to read this. What IS she doing with her time? School. Ha! That's crazy. Who wants to do school when you have regency no…

Marian Novenas For The Month of May

I will be putting up two novenas this month in honor of Our Lady.

Now these particular novenas, Mary Undoer of Knots Novena and The Three Hail Mary Novena, (which isn't really a novena because it goes for 3 days instead of 9, but whatever) have a different prayer each day,  so I will post that days prayer each morning.

Prayers will be up by 7 AM!!!

(Pinkie Promise!)

Now, the Three Day Novena will begin May 22, so we will end on the feast of Our Lady, Help of Christians. The Christians in the Middle East need all the help they can get, so please mention them in your request!

And the Novena to Mary Undoer of Knots will begin on the first  of the Month.


HOLY DAYS AND FEAST DAYS THIS MONTH:

May 1- Our Lady, Queen of May
May 13- Our Lady Of Fatima
May 24- Our Lady, Help of Christians
MAY 25- Feast of the Ascension! (This is a Holy Day of Obligation!) 
May 31- Visitation. Also the Queenship of Mary

(BTW: This is my favorite picture of the Visitation)




Ok, have a blessed day.

Happy Easter everyone!

Sorry I haven't been blogging lately. Holy Week was a little chaotic. Yeesh!

I've also been soul searching lately. My mom and I recently had the 'what do you want to do after high school talk.' Which was interesting. I'm trying to figure it out. I've been praying for a while and I honestly am so confused. So I would appreciate if you guys would keep me in your prayers.

I mean, I have some idea what I want to do. I just don't know if it's what I'm meant to do with my life.

I want to go to college and major in theatre. When I was in my church's play in January, I felt so at home on the stage. I felt happy.


But I suppose this is one of my fears about it. I'm not the most outgoing person. I am a little shy and have some anxiety. I want to go for it.

Thanks guys. Thanks for reading our blog and commenting all the nice things.

Love, -Lia

Awkward And Awesome: Skirts

AWKWARD:  The weird looks you getGood skirts are hard to come byThat one skirt you loved and wore everywhere just died,...because, well...you wore it everywhereWanting to be comfortable yet modest, so you pair your knee length skirt with your fandom T shirt and you just look like "Lazy Fangirl" on the top and "Classy Lady" on bottom. (Lets here it for the Classy Lazy Fangirl Ladies!)When it's windy and your skirt decides to do an impression of Marilyn Monroe.


AWESOME
You're being modest and pleasing GodYou look awesome!Skirts are awesome! They are literally the best for ANY weather! Hot during the summer? Wear short shorts under your skirt and Viola! Nice and cool. Cold during the winter? I know everyone says pants are warmer then skirts....but guess what! LIES! A skirt with pants under it is the warmest. thing. EVER!Cold in the morning and don't want to change out of your nice warm pajama pants? Wear a long skirt and tuck them into your fashion boots. (…

Pros and Cons of Cutting Your Hair

I love my pony tail. But I'm cutting my hair because I've been wearing that pony tail so long, I think it will become self aware pretty soon. (And then it can love me back and we'll be best friends. "Sorry boys. Me and my bestie here are going to town for coffee." *hair flip*)
Honestly, I haven't  had my hair shorter then shoulder length since I was three. So while I love my long fluffy pony tail, I want to try different things.
So to deal with this big step, I decided to make a blog post about it!
....

Obviously, that was written BEFORE my lovely locks were chopped off. It went ok. My hair went from mid-shoulder length hair that I always wore in a pony tail to....this. It looks kind of like Rapunzel, after her hair cut. Not quite that short and its kind of....fluffy. Oops. I forgot how big my hair was. Anyway, ON WITH THE POST! (Because you really don't want to hear me whine about my hair.)


Pro:
The more hair you've got, the more time you have to sp…

How To Deal With Birds In Church

So, this morning there was a bat in church. Just flying around, swooping over people's head and creeping them out (I was enjoying it. Bats are cool, plus the book I just finished....with the bat inspired stuff....)

So, I decided to write this post! (Obviously.) This works with bats or birds.


1. Look at the bird. Is it a small bright red songbird with a triangle crest on its head? If no, skip to step two. If yes, then laugh at the irony, because that is a cardinal.

(Obviously, this isn't my photo.)

2. Examine said flying invader.

If the bird is flying around, then look for a door. If you have more then one door, pick the one that opens to the outside. If not, pick the one with the easiest route out. If you have more then one option, pick the biggest one. That will help them find it. You don't have to get up and shut the door right away, they don't want to come back!

If they are sitting somewhere, try and catch them. If they hop up and fly around, then yay! They're no…

Awkward and Awesome: Assorted Stuff

Awkward:
When you see a cute skirt and then hold it up to show your Mom. Oh never mind. You can see right through it. When your reading a great book and you get to one of those parts where you just have to put the book down and give your brain time to register what just happened. Then you glance at your alarm clock and see it's 2 am and you notice that your eyeballs are being to burn. (But there is only five chapters left so you finish it.)When your walking through the parking lot with your Mom and see a giant pick up truck. You can't help, but stare a little. (What? I happen to like pickup trucks)  Then you notice the person inside (read: guy) staring back at you with an amused smile. Oops.That one day you don't shower, just throw in whatever and run to the store to buy ice cream...well, apparently your lazy days are "ALL CUTE BOYS GO GROCERY SHOPPING DAY"Awesome!

Book Review: The Phantom of the Opera

This picture really captures the Phantom of the Opera mood, I think.




Hello all!
So as I said in my Music of the Week #7 I promised to review Phantom of the Opera. Well, here it is, as promised!
The Phantom of the Opera is a novel by French writer Gaston Leroux. Fun Fact! The novel was inspired by historical events at the Paris Opera during the nineteenth century and a apocryphal tale, concerning the use of a former ballet pupil's skeleton in a production of Der Freischutz.
Creepy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Summary: Deformed since birth, a bitter man known as the Phantom lives in the sewers, underneath the Paris Opera House. He falls in love with the obscure chorus singer Christine, and privately tutors her while terrorizing the rest of the opera house and demanding Christine be given lead roles.
(Sounds like a real charmer there, doesn't he?)

I went into this book expecting to be exactly like the musical. Boy, was I wrong. This book is so terrifying! The Phantom is psychotic and kills …
