As I mentioned earlier this week, this has been a great week for celebrating the Saints. On the Calendar for today is dear St. Francis of Assisi.
To be honest, I am a bit wiped out from all the festivities, but I couldn't let this feast pass without doing a little something in his honor.
So, today we will be:
- Watching: Francis: The Knight of Assisi
- Coloring: This great coloring page
- Reading: The Good Man of Assisi, Francis Poor Man of Assisi, Saint Francis and/or Clare and Francis (Another one we *love* but will save for Advent is Saint Francis and the Christmas Donkey)
- Eating: Animal Cookies and Amy's Awesome Pizza (For more inspiration, don't miss Jenn's post at Catholic Cuisine with even more great recipes for this feast!)
O God, Who, by the merits of blessed Francis, didst increase Thy Church by bringing forth a new progeny, grant us to imitate him in despising earthly things and ever to rejoice in partaking of heavenly gifts.
St. Francis of Assisi ~ Pray for Us!
