Frugally Fancy is Going on Vacation

Hey y'all,

So...I've been struggling a bit....

Here's the problem:

1. Writing has kinda taken over my life this summer. Besides being heavily involved in the #RebelliousWriting movement, I'm also participating in Camp NaNoWriMo this month (which is a blast, don't get me wrong).

2. I lost my kitchen. I moved out of my old apartment at school upon graduating, and I've been bouncing around the country ever since. Needless to say, most of my meals are quick-grab/brown bag affairs. And there is no telling when I'll get another kitchen. Which makes me rather sad.

3. I haven't touched any of my needlework since the spring. There has simply been no time.....

4. My photo setup is worse than it was before. There really is no place to set up my mirror, and it's just a little too small for the photo shoots that I want to take. And ideally, I need a camera, not a phone.

So that leaves me with just agriculture and Catholicism to work with. Not that they aren't interesting topics, but...after several series posts, I'm getting rather bored and/or frustrated with them.

In short, this blog and I have been at odds with each other for a while. I've got thirty million ideas, but have no way of executing them for right now. And I love this blog too much to have it burn out on me.

So......

Frugally Fancy needs a vacation.

So I'm putting this blog on hiatus until November 2017, to be lifted at an earlier date if favorable circumstances prevail.

God bless y'all!

Old-Fashionably yours,

#RebelliousWriting

Hey y'all!

So...the interruption in my series on how to say the Rosary in Latin was not entirely intentional. I had that Father's Day post planned beforehand, and I had hoped to get the series done within a week of Pentecost Sunday.

But then Our Lord threw a project in my path. And that project was the #RebelliousWriting movement.

What is the #RebelliousWriting movement you may ask?

Well, it's a movement for clean literature, which officially started in the last days of May. A group of us young bloggers got sick and tired of seeing swearing, impurity and abuse being glorified in Young Adult Literature. So a lot of us, Catholic, Orthodox, and Protestant alike, took a stand, starting with a blogger named Gray Marie Cox (you can view her original post when you click the picture in my sidebar). I also made a post supporting this movement on my other blog, The Rebelling Muse.

God seemed to call me to go further though. A fiery zeal had started in my soul. Just saying that I supported it wasn't enough, I felt the need to help it grow.

At this point (mid-June), there had already been talk of potentially moving the movement to a website of it's own, of which I was ecstatic to hear about. I eagerly got in touch with Gray and the rest, as they say, is history.

Right now, I'm taking care of the team Pinterest, am on the writer's team, monitoring the team email, as well as *occasional* recruiting and other odd jobs. It sounds like a lot, but I'm enjoying every minute of it. I'm especially looking forward to the release of the #RebelliousWriting website, which will happen on August 9, 2017.

I would love to see this movement grow, especially among Catholic youth audiences. This movement would be a great catalyst to start a new culture of life among our youth. While it is only one part of the culture, even baby steps are better than nothing.

Old-fashionably yours,

How to Say the Rosary in Latin (Part 4, Finale)

Hey y'all!

I'm so sorry that I took this long, but we have finally come to the end! This last post will give the mystery titles in Latin and the prayers for the pope, so you can say your rosary totally in Latin!

Disclaimer: These prayers were taken and checked by multiple sources. The bulk of the prayers in this series can be found on this website: 
http://www.traditioninaction.org/religious/b012rpLatin_Rosary.htm

Here's how it will work: I'll put the text of the whole prayer in Latin first, followed by the full English translation. Then, each prayer will be broken down by line. I'll give the Latin first in colored text, then the pronunciation below it in colored italics.

So let's get started!

Thank heavens. 

(Did I ever mention that writing pronunciation is hard???) 

In addition to this post, I've also updated all of the other "How to Say the Rosary in Latin" posts so all the schemes are the same and all the italics are in the right place. (this is what happens when you write these at night). 

Hope your summer is going well!

How to Say the Rosary in Latin (Part 3)

Hey y'all,

Please forgive the interruption in our Latin lessons. I had intended to get these all done at once, but that never happened. Now I'm on a blogging spree here on Frugally Fancy in order to get some of these drafts that have been sitting around for a while.....

For this post, I'm doing the Rosary Meditation Prayer, the Memorare, and the Prayer to St. Michael. These prayers are technically extra prayers that are often tacked onto the end the Rosary, right after the Hail Holy Queen.

Disclaimer: These prayers were taken and checked by multiple sources. The bulk of the prayers in this series can be found on this website: 
http://www.traditioninaction.org/religious/b012rpLatin_Rosary.htm

Here's how it will work: I'll put the text of the whole prayer in Latin first, followed by the full English translation. Then, each prayer will be broken down by line. I'll give the Latin first in colored text, then the pronunciation below it in colored italics.

So let's get started!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Rosary Meditation Prayer

Oremus.

Deus, cujus Unigenitus per vitam, mortem, et resurrectionem suam nobis salutis æternae præmia comparavit: concede, quæsumus; ut hæc mysteria sanctissimo beatæ Mariæ Virginis Rosario recolentes, et imitemur quor continent, et quod promittunt assequamur. Per eudum Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen.


Let us pray.

O God, whose only begotten Son, by His life, death and resurrection, has purchased for us the rewards of eternal life. Grant, we beseech Thee, that by meditating on these mysteries of the most holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we may imitate what they contain and obtain what they promise, through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

(Note: This prayer is also the collect of the Mass for the Feast of the Holy Rosary.)

 The Memorare 

O piissima Virgo Maria, non esse auditum a seculo, quemquam ad tua currentum praesidia, tua implorantum auxilia, tu petentem suffragia, esse derelictum. Ego tali animatus confidentia, ad te Virgo Virginum, Mater, curro, ad te venio, coram te gemens peccator assisto. Noli Mater Verbi, verba mea despicere, sed audi propitia et exaudi. Amen.

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known, that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of Virgins, my Mother! To thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen.

Sancte Michael Archangle, defende nos in proelio, contra nequitam et insidias diaboli esto praesisdium.

Amen.

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, cast into Hell Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl throughout the world, seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

Father's Day

Hey y'all,

I apologize for my mini-blogging hiatus - I took anther 600 mile trip (I seriously need to stop making a habit of this...) and....I have taken on a new role.

I can't reveal it just yet, but I'll give you a hint: it has something to do with the #RebelliousWriting movement.

Which I'm sure that my daddy would be very proud of :).

I've always looked up to my father. Our relationship has had it's bumps, but I wouldn't trade my daddy for anybody else's.

I wish Father's Day was celebrated more in depth. While mothers have a very important role, so do fathers. Not enough people recognize the father's contribution to the family.

This holiday should recognize:

The fathers that patiently work hard to provide for their families.

The fathers that set good examples for their sons.

The fathers that protect and support their daughters. 

The fathers that lovingly touch, bop, and kiss their children

The fathers that beam as little ones talk to them

The fathers that paitiently stay in the back of the church with their squawking baby

The fathers that lovingly correct their children. 

The fathers that encourage their children to follow their vocations.

Because while fathers may not seem to have as big of a role of raising their children, their role is irreplaceable.

And we Catholics should also recognize our priests during this holiday as well. They are not called "Father" for any idle reason. They have a lot of the same qualities as a natural father; quite sharper, if I may say so.

Saint Joseph, please pray for our fathers and guide them in their vocation of fatherhood.

Old-fashionably yours,

Farm Lassie

How to Say the Rosary in Latin (Part 2)

Hey y'all!

Second Latin lesson! This time, I'll do the Apostle's Creed, The Fatima Prayer and the Hail Holy Queen.

Disclaimer: These prayers (with the exception of The Fatima Prayer, which has several Latin translations) were taken and checked by multiple sources. The bulk of the prayers in this series can be found on this website: http://www.traditioninaction.org/religious/b012rpLatin_Rosary.htm

Here's how it will work: I'll put the text of the whole prayer in Latin first, followed by the full English translation. Then, each prayer will be broken down by line. I'll give the Latin first in colored text, then the pronunciation below it in colored italics.

So let's get started!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Symbolum Apostolorum (Apostle's Creed)

Credo in Deum Patrem omnipotentem, Creatorem caeli et terrae; et in Iesum Christum,
Filium eius unicum, Dominium nostrum; qui conceptus est de Spiritu Sancto,
natus ex Maria Virgine; passus sub Pontio Pilato, crucifixus, mortuus, et septultus;
descendit ad infernos; tertia die resurrexit a mortuis; ascendit ad caelos, sedet ad dexteram Dei Patris omnipotentis; inde venturus est judicare vivos et mortuos.
Credo in Spiritum Sanctum; Sanctum Ecclesiam Catholicam; Sanctorum communionem; remissionem peccatorum; carnis resurrectionem; vitam aeternam. Amen.

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of Heaven and earth. And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and buried. He descended into hell, on the third day He rose again from the dead. He ascended into Heaven and sits on the right hand of God, the Father Almighty, from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost, the Holy Catholic Church, the Communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body and life everlasting. Amen.

Hail Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy, our life, our sweetness, our hope! To thee we cry, oh banished children of Eve. To thee we send up our sighs, mournings and weepings in this vale of tales. Turn then, oh gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy towards us, and after our exile, show onto us, the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Oh clement, oh loving, oh sweet Virgin Mary!

V. Pray for us, oh Holy Mother of God.
R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

There! Now you know most of the basic prayers. In the next post, I'll include the Rosary Meditation Prayer, the Memorare, and the Prayer of St. Michael, which are technically extra prayers that many people add to their rosaries.

Bye Bye May!!!

Hey y'all,

In the spirit of trying to lighten up this blog, I've decided to try my hand at a monthly wrap up post. So much has happened this month, it's really crazy!


In my journey through life:

I graduated college on the 100th anniversary of the 1st vision of Fatima.


I have literally travelled over 1000 miles over the past month. I'm getting really really tired of living out of suitcases.

so wish all of my possession could fit into this one bag...


I started my summer job today!!! Give you an idea of what I'm doing....

I'm possibly going to work with these guys :)

On my blog:

I hit 1000 views in the very beginning of this month (link here!).



I celebrated my six-month blogoversary (link here!)



I've posted my first guest post (link here!)


In my workbasket:

I started altering a knit shirt to make it larger - it fit a little too well before.

I'm finishing a tan linen skirt (for office wear...it was the only professional color that I didn't have!)


In my spiritual journey:

I've started to post how to say the Rosary in Latin (hopefully that will be finished by Pentecost Sunday 😀)


On my other blog: 

It was open TAG season! Book tags, blogger awards, and more! My personal favorite was the Bookish Book Lover's Tag.


That's it for now! What will June bring?

How to Say the Rosary in Latin (Part 1)

Hey y'all,

Pentecost is very fastly approaching! I can't believe, it seems that Easter was just a short while ago.....

One of the most visible gifts that the Holy Ghost gave to the 11 apostles was the gift of tongues. They could understand and converse in several different languages, including the old Latin which is still spoken in our Extraordinary Form Masses.

As a kid, I had a lot of difficulty understanding the Latin - consquently I'm afraid I developed a hearty dislike of the Latin Rite. I was attending English liturgy more often anyway, so what did it bother?

Until my dad decided to stop attending the local Norvus Ordo church and drag us to attend a TLM (which was an hour from my house) every Sunday when I was around twelve.

Needless to say, I learned to deal with it. As time went on, I grew to gradually love the TLM, and now I prefer it more than anything.

That being said, my understanding of the Latin was next to nothing - until around four years ago.

You see, my BFF/unbiological sister's family decided some time ago to pray the Rosary in Latin (I think it was to help the boys with their Latin prayers for serving, if I remember correctly).

I didn't even know that was possible!

Naturally, they taught me how to say it and I've been saying my daily Rosary in Latin for about a year or so now.  

Over the past couple of years of doing that, I suddenly noticed that I could understand a lot more of the liturgy without looking at a Missal. I'm still only able to pick out individual words, though I am getting some phrases down.

So, for this Pentecost, I will pass on my knowledge and hope it gives you the same graces (and more!) that it gave me!


Disclaimer: These prayers were taken and checked by multiple sources. The bulk of the prayers in this series came from this website: http://www.traditioninaction.org/religious/b012rpLatin_Rosary.htm

So, in a Rosary, there are 7-9 different prayers that people say: Apostles Creed, Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be, Fatima Prayer, Hail Holy Queen, Rosary Meditation Prayer, The Memorare, Prayer to St. Michael, Prayers for the Pope (Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be).

Obviously, that's a lot. Even I had to learn gradually, so I'll do the same here for you.

For this first part, I'll put up the Latin tutorials for the Sign of the Cross, the Our Father, the Hail Mary and the Glory Be. In the second part, I'll put up the Apostles Creed, the Fatima Prayer and the Hail Holy Queen. In the third part, I'll put up the Rosary Mediation Prayer, the Memorare and the Prayer to St. Michael. In the fourth part, I'll include all of the Mystery titles and the Prayers for the Intentions to the Holy Father and some other Intention titles.

Here is how it's going to work: I'll put the text of the whole prayer in Latin first, followed by the full English translation. Then, each prayer will be broken down by line. I'll give the Latin first in colored text, then the pronunciation below it in colored italics.

So let's get started!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Signum Crucis (Sign of the Cross)

In nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti. Amen

In the name of the Father and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Pater Noster (Our Father)

Pater noster, qui es in caelis, sanctificatur nomen tuum. 
Adveniat regnem tuum, fiat voluntas tua, sicut caelo et in terra. 
Panen nostram quotidianum da nobis hodie, et dimitte nobis debita nostra, sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris, et ne nos inducas in tentationem, sed libera nos a malo. Amen. 

Our Father, Who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy Name. 
Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven. 
Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. Amen.

Six-Month Blogoversary (Reflections and Stats)



Hey y'all,

Has it really been six months since I started this blog???

Wow.

I must admit, I never imagined that the time would go this quickly.

First things first, I need to thank my soul sister for helping me push this blog off the ground. Without her encouragement, I'm fairly sure that my ideas would have never reached beyond my computer.
 *sends virtual hugs and lots of virtual chocolate cause I miss her so much*

To kick off my celebration, I've added some reflections from my blogging experience thus far and I'll end with my blog stats. 

*******

Some Good Things I've Noticed:


I have a much better idea what blogging really means and how much fun it is. 

While blogs can teach, that's not the main focus. It really is more of an online journal.

The first time I got excited to blog about something was actually my second post - the one about the failed custard. That incident literally happened a day or two before I wrote it, and I thought it was really funny and wanted to share it.

My cooking scrapes are my favorite thing to blog about. But experimenting in the kitchen is not the only thing that I do. I do a lot of sewing and needlecraft. I hope to put up some posts about some of those projects soon.

Blogging has opened up a whole new set of friends and given me new insights into people. 

Blogging behind a screen has really made me embrace my inner introvert, but has opened up my social world. Weird, right?

I never was a social butterfly, only have a few very close friends in all the stages of my life. I now follow 70+ blogs and comment on a lot of them regularly. I don't feel weirded out at all.

I've also gotten to know some people from around the world and got to see some of the subtle differences between the US and the rest of the world. I find that so cool. 


Some Bad Things That I've Noticed 

I seriously need to lighten up. 

I'm sure that my friends will agree that whenever I give my opinion on something, I don't couch it very well. I tend to be rather point-blank, especially if you're close to me. I've rubbed a lot of people the wrong way, including professors and friends, with my rather antagonistic viewpoints. Sometimes I felt like there is an invisible hand that is keeping my opinions from entering the wider world and writing about it often made me feel better.

I'm fairly sure that that sentiment has leaked into my blog. I've noticed that a lot of my posts are...preachy. A lot of these "informational" posts seem to be analytical pieces that I'm interested in writing. A fun school assignment if you will.

I think that's the main reason why I started The Rebellious Muse. In addition to the serious stuff that I was writing in school, I was also doing serious work in my free time.

Granted, I like to expound on some topic, such as modesty, and give my personal spin on it. I don't mind spreading information around and clearing up misunderstandings. But "all work and no play makes Jill a very dull girl".


I need more of my own visuals

For my pictures on both blogs, I've used some of my own pictures but have relied heavily on public domain pictures from Pixabay.com as well as embedded pins. This is because I was taught in high school to have a strict adherence to copyright laws for images and other media. While Pixabay and Pinterest have really helped me out to find images suitable for my posts, I really miss going out and taking pictures. My old digital camera died a couple of years ago, and I really need to invest in a new camera before I can do that though. Sure, my smartphone works in a pinch but outfit selfies with a smartphone are not easy, let me tell you!

And I have noticed that I don't have a lot of visual appeal to my posts. I need to change that too, cause that's what I like about other people's posts. Finding visuals is one of the things that takes the longest to do when blogging, and jumping around 3 different devices really doesn't help either.

Looking Forward

So, in the future, I'm going to create more and let my DIY spirit run free for a little while....as long as my job and grad school doesn't get in the way. 

The digital camera will have to wait until either I scrape some cash together, but I'll see what the smartphone can do 😄 I've been thinking about doing some quote art when I have the time, just to pretty up the blog a little more.

Some future posts include a tutorial for sewing a medieval gown, more ag posts, and some Latin prayers.
