On the Feast of St. Maximilian Kolbe
Today, August 14th, is the feast of St. Maximilian Kolbe.
After dinner this evening my children asked to listen to The Knight and Our Lady! The Story of St. Maximilian Kolbe while coloring Charlotte’s wonderful coloring page.
They also asked me to post their finished pictures for you all to see:
Left: by Captain (age 9) Right: by Rascal (age 7)
Left: by Twinkle Toes (age 5) Right: by Chiquita (age 4)
In the meantime, also inspired by Charlotte, I tried making some St. Max’s Candy for dessert.
I ended up using pecans, since that is what I had in the freezer. The candy didn’t turn out anywhere near
as pretty as Charlotte’s
, but I do
have the same china ☺and my children thought the candy was delicious!
Thank you Charlotte!!!
St. Maximilian Kolbe ~ 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.
