Well, I knew this blog post novena was not going to be a cakewalk, and that the weekend would be especially difficult. Alas, I missed yesterday, but I’m back on it today.
First, since it’s Sunday, a day when we typically meditate on the Glorious Mysteries, I thought I’d share a post from a fellow member of the Catholic Writer’s Guild, Dennis P. McGeehan. I’ll be honest and tell you that I had never even considered the idea that Saint Joseph might have been assumed into Heaven, but Dennis presents a very interesting case in his post, The Assumption of Saint Joseph. Check it out – I’d be interested to hear your thoughts!
Next, I’ve reached into the archives of my old blog, marthasheart.com, and found the following post which I thought was a lovely way to end the weekend – celebrating God’s great love for us, his sons and daughters.

Today, my two year old daughter waved her magic wand at me and informed me that I was Princess Aurora. She then said that I had been “princessified.”
Thinking tonight of the Coronation of Our Lady, it occurred to me that, while there may be only one Queen of Heaven, each and every one of us is a prince or princess in God’s eyes. I was actually nearly giggling during my meditation, imagining all of us running around heaven with little crowns on our heads.
Why not smile and giggle, yes, giggle, knowing how very much God loves us? That we are His children, and He loves us so much!
Throw back your shoulders and hold your head up high. Wear that crown with pride. You are God’s child, His Princess (or Prince)!
