A Saint and his Lion

by | Oct 27, 2007 | Catholic Mosaic, Crafts, Saints | 1 comment

Today, our Catholic Mosaic study lead us to read A Saint and His Lion: The Story of Telka of Ethiopia. The kids all loved the story, and were especially intrigued by the lion that St. Telka befriended.

After coloring their stained glass pictures, from the Catholic Mosaic Coloring companion-Fenestrae Fedei, of St. Telka and His Lion, the kids made these darling paper bag lions, or rather, “Anbassa” puppets from Martha Stewart’s website.

Then they headed back outside, to rake leaves with daddy and enjoy more of this BEAUTIFUL fall weather we have been having, while I made dinner.

As we were finishing up the lion puppet I hear Twinkle Toes say to Chiquita,”I’m scared of lions cause they will bite me… their suppose to bite me, Right? But daddy will save me cause he has a gun.” Poor thing!! Why would she even have to worry about lions!

The kids will paste their coloring pages into their Liturgical Notebooks on Monday and add a bit of copywork, but here is a picture anyways.

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.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
