Catholic Mosaic, Crafts, Coffee, Cocoa and Cupcakes!
Today we finally had a chance to read Peter Claver, Patron Saint of Slaves for our Catholic Mosaic study. St. Peter Claver’s feast day was actually on September 9th. But better late than never, right?!
We all got comfortable on the couch and read the story. I just love the reading selections that Cay has used in her book. I would have never found some of these books on my own.
The kids helped me make chocolate cupcakes for our tea (which will actually be hot cocoa) this beautiful fall afternoon.
We have company coming over so we will save our treats to share. We displayed them on this
awesome cupcake rack we just got from Michael’s with a 40% off coupon!
The cupckaes are not quite diet friendly, so I will satisfy my cravings with a cup of this:
(Thanks Regina for the recommendation–it’s absolutely DELICIOUS and only has 30 calories!)
The kids moved into the school room and colored their pictures of St. Peter Claver and did a bit of copy work from the book.
“The slave of slaves I’ll always be. My soul won’t rest until you’re free.”
– St. Peter Claver
St. Peter Claver, pray for us!
Prayer of Mothers
Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.
