Pray the Advent Names of God

14 Dec

The O Antiphons are the prayers for Vespers from December 17 through December 23. They are the last signposts on our journey through Advent to Christmas.

Sister Joan and Sister Ansgar created art and poetry for these seven prayers.  The first one, for this Sunday, December 17, illustrates this post. These cards are available from Good Ground Press. It is too late to get them to you for your prayer this Advent, but you can order now and be ready next December.

The other six 0 Antiphons will be the daily prayer on our website at goodgroundpress.com. We wish your many blessings in this last week of preparation for Christmas.

Only $15.00. Click here to order online or call Lacy at 800-232-5533 to place your order.

Our Lady of Guadalupe

12 Dec

Today is the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Celebrate by sharing this prayer. Click here for Our Lady’s story with friends and family. The art and prayer on this page are by Sister Ansgar Holmberg. The story appeared first in Good News, one of the Pflaum Gospel Weeklies. Happy feast day!

Our Mother Who Art

You are the mother
of the dark and the light
the rich and the poor
the humble and proud.

You are the mother
of the young and the old
the strong and the weak
of those who rejoice
of those who weep.

You are the mother
of woman and man
of small and of great
of broken and whole.
You are the mother who art.


Sister Ansgar Holmberg’s beautiful artwork is featured on a series of cards available from Good Ground Press.

The Our Mother Who Art card is available in packs of 10 (with envelopes) for $15.00. Visit goodgroundpress.com to order online or call us at 800-232-5533.

Poem of the week

23 May

Each week this summer we are posting a poem on Keeping Faith Today — Sister Joan’s blog. This week’s poem is by Sister Alice Smith, CSJ, who taught Joan all she knows about writing. Thank you, Sister Alice!

Happy Memorial Day weekend to all of you.

Mother & Child by Ade Bethune

Mary of Nazareth


Mary Queen of Heaven is a mighty queen,
but Mary of Nazareth was a queen no less,
although Nazareth folk never dreamed they had seen
in the carpenter’s house a queen in working dress;
a queen sweeping a floor or laying a table,
or washing the supper things at fall of night.
And even had they watched,
 they would not have been able
to see the angel who came in a cloud of light,
an angel with great eyes aflame with wonder
who knelt before this girl and spoke to her.
The sound of his voice was more terrible than thunder,
but she was not terrified. She did not stir.
And when she spoke, the angel bowed his head,
knowing what power moved in the word she said.
~ Sister Alice Smith, CSJ
