To celebrate All Saint’s Day this year, all the children in the religious education program at our church (kindergarten to 8th grade) participated in a procession during Mass to demonstrate their favorite Saints. In my class for First Communicants that I’m co-teaching with Dottie Davis (James’ religious class teacher from last year), Judit chose to represent Saint Teresa of Calcutta and Cale chose Saint Francis of Assisi. Dottie and I helped them research and draw their Saints.
James’ favorite Saint is Saint Michael the Archangel.
Saint Michael the Archangel is the leader of all the angels and the army of God. He is the patron Saint of grocers, firefighters, police, soldiers, paratroopers, the sick and all those who work in dangerous jobs. Our children learned the prayer to Saint Michael the Archangel during class yesterday.
Yesterday, our children also learned during class about the existence and nature of evil and about the protection of their guardian angels over them. They learned the prayer to their guardian angel.
Thank you for reading! May your guardian angel watch over you day and night.
