Our week has been so super busy, that I decided to spread our celebration of her feast over both days! For those of you that know us, you know why St. Clare is such a special saint to our family! ;)
Yesterday afternoon, after swimming, the children listened to the audio story, A Sparrow in God's Hand: The Story of St. Clare, while they colored the beautiful picture of her provided in Fenestrae Fidei.
My children never tire of coloring, and they just love the pictures in Fenestrae Fidei. (Thank you to the publisher for allowing reproducing rights for the family/classroom!)
Last night, for dinner, we had an Italian meal including spaghetti and garlic bread... And, this morning, the children woke up to chocolate éclairs. Yum!!!
After the children wake up from their naps (swimming really wears them out!), we will be reading Clare and Francis, which is suggested in Catholic Mosaic, and then do a bit of copywork to add to our liturgical notebooks along with the colored pictures.
What you hold may you always hold.I hope you all are having a wonderful week! God Bless!
What you do, may you always do and never abandon.
But with swift pace, light step and unswerving feet,
so that even your steps stir up no dust,
Go forward, the spirit of our God has called you.
~ Blessing from St. Clare's second letter to Blessed Agnes of Prague
Saint Clare of Assisi, mistress of poverty, pray for us!
