Saint Francis and the Wolf
“We have been called to heal wounds, to unite what has fallen apart, and to bring home those who have lost their way.”
– St. Francis of Assisi
Since one of the famous stories of St. Francis tells how he tamed the wolf that was terrorizing the people of Gubbio, Wolf Paw Cookies make a fun treat for this feast day. Here are this year’s cookies, made by our girls while I was running errands in town! The directions can be found over at Catholic Cuisine.
The book we read this year, pictured above, is Saint Francis and the Wolf by Jane Langton. You can find lots of other options in our October Book Basket.

|While I was taking pictures, our six year old insisted on sharing his favorite Saint Francis of Assisi Pillowcase from Prayer Pillowcases with you all too!
St. Francis of Assisi, ora pro nobis!
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.
