Two Saints

Today we are doing some cooking, for our parish Youth Supper tonight. Supper after Mass, during which Fr. Thomas Sullivan will give a homily. Fr. is from the Fathers of Mercy and is the missioner for our parish mission this week .

Today, I am reading to the family about two saints ~ Saint Zita and Saint Mark the Evangelist.

We have the book Vendela in Venice out for display and to read - St Mark's relics are in Venice and these and the lions of St Mark are discussed in the book.

I thought we'd tie our cooking in with the liturgical year - make Risi e Bisi for St Mark ( apparently a favourite dish in Venice on this feast day) and also some bread for St Zita - the Little Cook and patron of housekeepers.
