Today was the feast of St. John the Apostle. St. John was one of the sons of Zebedee, or “sons of thunder,” and the apostle “whom Jesus loved.”
Since St. John is often symbolized with an eagle, we made an Eagle Cake for dessert. It was super easy and so much fun to make. My children loved it!
God our Father, you have revealed the mysteries of your Word through John the apostle. By prayer and reflection may we come to understand the wisdom he taught. Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
