  • MEET OUR EXTENDED FAMILY - THE SAINTS

    from 52 Sundays "A Guide to Reclaim The Lord’s Day for Faith and Family" 
    By Anita Houghton and Tara Stenger 

    The saints are members of the Church who are with Christ in heaven praying for those in the Church who are still on their pilgrimage of faith. The saints in this year’s edition of 52 Sundays all share one thing in common: they are martyrs of the Church.  Saints help us see how our ordinary lives can be lived out in extraordinary ways.

    Servant of God Caroline Jones Chisholm (Feast Day March 25)
    May 30, 1808-March 25, 1877

    Caroline was born in England in 1808 and raised in an Anglican family. Even as a child, she was very interested in immigration and felt drawn to help the less fortunate. When Caroline was 22, Archibald Chisholm, a faithful Catholic and a Captain in the East India Army company, asked her to marry him. Caroline agreed on one condition: that he would support her in helping those in need, as she understood that to be a special calling for her. Archibald agreed. Caroline soon converted to Catholicism, and the two raised their family in the Church. While living in Madras, Caroline opened the Female School of Industry, a school for orphaned girls, illegitimate daughters of British soldiers, and local women.

    In 1838, Archibald’s health was failing, so Caroline and her family moved to Sydney, Australia in hopes that a more temperate climate would help Archibald feel better. Caroline was appalled by the poor treatment of the migrant women living in Sydney. She went to work immediately, advocating to get the women jobs, better working conditions, and shelter. Three years later, she founded the Female Emigrant’s Home, where women found shelter and assistance finding jobs.

    In her first seven years in Australia, Caroline helped over 11,000 immigrants. Her compassion and love for the poor and lonely arriving in Australia is so well-known and respected that her picture is on Australia’s original $5 bill. Caroline continued to advocate, write, and speak on immigration rights until she became bedridden the last few years of her life. Caroline died at the age of 68, and her husband Archibald died five months later.

    •Servant of God Caroline Jones Chisholm knew God had called her to serve those in need. How did her vocation to marriage help her do that?

    .‍RECIPE OF THE WEEK:

    Decorated Cakes with Homemade Whipped Cream

    Celebrate the vocation to marriage of Servant of God Caroline Jones Chisholm and her husband, Archibald, by decorating some mini-wedding cakes today using this frosting.

    1 cup heavy whipping cream

    3 Tbsp powdered sugar(optional)

    ½ tspof vanilla extract

    Cupcakes (homemade or store bought)

    Place your mixing bowl and beaters in the freezer for 15 minutes before you make the whipped cream. Remove from freezer and pour all the ingredients into the cold bowl. Use a hand mixer or stand-up mixer on low, watching for bubbles to form. Once you see the bubbles, turn the speed up to medium until peaks form.

    Chill until ready to serve.

    To decorate the cupcakes, divide the whipped cream into smaller bowls and make different colors using food coloring. Spoon into plastic baggies and snip the corner to make your own piping bags. Use candy, sprinkles, etc. to add additional decorations. Have each family member decorate their own cupcake.
