Celebrating Martinmas

"Martin, so comfortable on his horse and cozy within his beautiful thick coat, took the coat from his shoulders, cut it with his sword and draped the largest part on the man. Something spoke inside his heart and said it was the right thing to do."

Our little guy pulled out one of the gifts he received last Christmas to play with this afternoon... Perfect for today's feast!

We also enjoyed reading Snow on Martinmas...

... decorating our St. Martin Cookies with marshmallow fondant... 
(I forgot to take a picture once they were finished! They are long gone now.) 

... our Martinmas Lantern Walk and roasting marshmallows over the bonfire... 

... and goose chicken pot pies for dinner!

{Even I got to enjoy a homemade grain-free, dairy-free AIP pot pie! Heavenly!}

O God, Who seest that we exist by no power of our own, mercifully grant that, by the intercession of blessed Martin, Thy confessor and bishop, we be strengthened against all adversities. 

St. Martin of Tours, Pray for us!
