St. Jerome and the Lion

At the end of each September, I love turning our leftover Michaelmas Cupcakes into the face of a lion for the kids to enjoy while we read the legend of St. Jerome and the Lion. You can find many options for today's feast listed in our September Book Basket. This year we are reading Saint Jerome and the Lion from our out-of-print copy (The Neumann Press, 2000 Edition) of Legends of Saints and Beasts by Ann Marie Jauss originally published in 1954.

"So valuable to heaven is the dignity of the human soul that every member of the human race has a guardian angel from the moment the person begins to be." - St. Jerome

The feast of the Holy Guardian Angels is coming up in a couple days! 

St. Jerome, ora pro nobis!
