Catholic Woman’s Almanac

Catholic Woman’s Almanac hosted by Suspicio is a way to keep track of where I am, have been and plan to be from a Catholic perspective.

  • Around the House

Since we are in the middle of a Canadian winter, my thoughts cannot help but turn to a miracle  that happened at our  house last year.  This was a miracle of multiplication and because I am leery that I will be labelled a quack or fanatic, I have not written about the many miracles that God has showered on our large family.

 Some people scoff at these mysteries, others think that miracles are relegated to biblical times but others have experienced inexplicable events that can only be called miraculous.

Our oil tank was red tagged, it could not be filled but it never ran out of oil for 5 months. Usually we fill it every 3 weeks.


Finally near the end of February we relaxed and enjoyed this unexpected miracle right into April.

Thanking God for

  • Taking care of us without us even asking! 



  • His providence. 
    ◄  Matthew 6:26  ►
    Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?

  • Some kinds of miracles happen when we are desperate, without recourse to any other solution to solve our problem. Then the Father supplies our needs. As parents of a large family we depend on Him to supply a lot of the basic necessities. Not our wants but our needs. Even our sceptical children concede that this is true.
  • The reality of depending on God is nitty, gritty, tough and goes against all our cultural and educational training and  our instincts for survival.
