And God Laughed at my Plan. - Short Story by Mrs. Haught.

August 25, 2022

Have you ever planned a beautiful day, think of how you will take some time for prayer, meditation, restore yourself to peace... only to be immediately burst out of your bubble by God's Divine... (and sometimes humorous) Providence? A Typical story of a daily dose of mortification, with Our Lord's own way to lead us to him.

Our Lord finds ways to sanctify us through our daily lives!

Have you ever been plunged into a crossroads in your life and known instantly that this decision would either mean sacrificing something you have loved and devoted your life to…or walking away from a beautiful new future that you can only dimly imagine?

 

That is exactly what my guest Jenn Kray faced. In this episode of The Christian Mother, learn how she dealt with her uncertainties and forged ahead, finding new ways to put her knowledge, skills, and experience in the service of God and her community.

 

As Jenn’s story unfolds, she shares the titles of books that helped her become the Catholic mother she yearned to be, including Around the Year with the von Trapp Family, The Year and Our Children, Raising Good Catholic Children, The Christian Mother, and The Mirror of True Womanhood.

 

Outlining her thoughts on time management, Jenn explains how she incorporates the teaching of life skills into her mothering and homeschooling and how she adapted her housekeeping expectations to the challenges of raising a large family.

 

In the latter part of the show Jenn describes her experience with The Little Flowers Girls’ Club, which is based on the virtues taught in Fr. Lasance’s The Catholic Girls’ Guide and expanded with programming from Behold Publications. Two other websites that Jenn has found useful for providing Catholic materials and/or information are Shower of Roses and Finer Femininity.

What is the role of the older women in the Church? Fr. Benedict Hughes, CMRI, explains and elaborates on this Bible instruction in this episode of The Christian Mother.

In Part 1, we discuss what was happening in the Church when St. Paul gave this instruction to Titus, the comparison to our times and the implications of the five points given specifically to the older women.

Then Father talks about the feminization of the Church since Vatican II and recommends an article he wrote for The Reign of Mary called "The Feminization of the Conciliar Church". (See it Here)

Citing several supporting Scriptures, Father shows how God decreed that women should be subject to their husbands. We discuss the wonderful memorial letter (see it here) he wrote about his mom, and he shares the inspiring story of his grandparents' establishing and keeping a Catholic home.

Next, Father explains the teaching in Proverbs 31 and highlights the most important parts and how his mother lived these teachings.

In Part II, we discuss solutions with a look back at traditions and organizations that were in place prior to Vatican II, when the older generation teaching and guiding the youth was the norm. Father discusses the important roles that retreats, Altar and Rosary Society, Confraternity of Christian Mothers, etc., played in promoting Godly women. He explains how today the opportunity of meeting with other Catholic women and building relationships is critically important. Father closes with encouragement for mothers.
