Life isn't about waiting for the storms to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain.
We did get our throats blessed, a tradition I love! I remember it from when I was a young school girl. Our priest announced after Mass they would be blessing throats and I was happy to see at least half the congregation stay -- yes, we love these traditions -- and why would any one pass up a blessing? :-)Happy feast to your sweet boy (belated)!
I just love these cookies! We had our "throats" blessed too, but Father didn't use candles :( He just blessed everyone all at once at the end of Mass "since it was Sunday."
Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us!
