Franciscan Feast Kindergarten Style

But may it never be that I would boast,

except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ,

through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.   

From now on let no one cause trouble for me,

for I bear on my body the brand-marks of Jesus.




Sister Kathleen’s kindergarten class celebrates the Feast of the Stigmata of St. Francis.  They are busy about placing the marks of the crucifixion on St. Francis, just as they heard in the story of Francis in the cave.
