"The whole trouble is that -- literally -- we do not know what is good for us; and what makes the trouble still worse is that we think we do. We have our own plans for our happiness, and too often we merely regard God as somebody who will help us to accomplish them. The true state of affairs is just the opposite. God has His plans for our happiness, and He is waiting for us to help Him to accomplish them. And let us be quite clear about it: We cannot improve on God's plans." This Tremendous Lover, M. Eugene Boylan, O.C.R.

The rest of this most Holy Week will be busy for me, so I wanted to share one activity that I'll be doing with my girls at home. I LOVE Catholic Icing!! It is my favorite crafty, Catholic blog. She has a beautiful Resurrection set that you can make with free printables. I used her set, but added John the Beloved and another woman. I also wrote on Mary's halo "MP" and "OY," just like she has in all the icons. You can see my printable here.

Be sure to go check out the original post here. We made a set like this for the Nativity of Christ as well. My five year old in particular plays with the set a lot, even now. I can't wait to show her this one!


  1. This craft is so simple that I thought children will not be interested to even look at it, until, I saw two little girls spending time with Mary, John and Jesus on the Cross. Bravo! Interesting, during the entire time watching them, the two girls did not place Jesus in the Kleenex Tomb, Christ is Risen!

  2. I wonder who those "two little girls" were? LOL...Thank you Father, for your support!
