Saint a Day

Saints : A Year in Faith and Art by Rosa Giorgi is such a nice little book. There's a 2-page spread for each saint for each day of the year. The left page is a brief (a few sentences) description about the saint and the right page is work of art of that saint. It doesn't like to stay open by itself, so we're using a heavy key chain with a saint metal on it to hold the pages open.

I looked into buying a tabletop book stand, but they're more expensive than I can justify right now (hint to my honey). This one is definately on my wish list and this one and I even like this one. Instead, Ds#4 used his Kindergarten Wooden Blocks and using the wedge pieces we "built" one --but each time we change the page, we need to rearrage the blocks.

We have candles on either side of the book for what season or feast day color the liturgy would be. The book sits open all day so the kids can reflect (hopefully pray) to the saint that day.

It's so easy and incorporates a spirit of renewed prayer into each day.
