According to Scribd, it has been a month since I last uploaded a coloring page. I am still here, I promise, just very busy and feeling like I am playing a perpetual game of "catch-up". Where did January go? But since today is a very special day for us, I forced myself to finish up this coloring page and get it done today and while it might be later than I would have liked, it is still today!
St. Blaise Coloring Page
The coloring page is based on this picture hanging in my son's room. It was the bulletin cover from our parish a few years ago that I framed so I don't know where it came from.
On the feast of St. Blaise it is traditional to have your throats blessed, but in some countries, they take sticks of bread to be blessed as well that are kept and eaten for a sore throat. (Husband asked, "Homemade penicillin?") Ann Ball has a recipe for St. Blaise Biscuits in her book Catholic Traditions in the Home and Classroom but they call for beer which we don't keep on hand. I think we might just make some cinnamon bread sticks to have as a treat when we get home.
Do you have any special plans?
