Some really cool Saints this week...

We've been reading a little bit about each, and looking at the corresponding artwork in our book - Saints : A Year in Faith and Art.

St Teresa Benedicta of the Cross

St Maximilian Kolbe

St Clare

And, of course, on Friday we have the feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary ~ A Holy Day of Obligation.

I'm looking forward to the Assumption. At the Oratory they have Vespers and benediction on the evening preceeding a holy day of obligation, starting at 5:30, and followed by the first mass of the feast at 6:30. Hoping to get there for that!

Our priest calls them Holy days of Opportunity ;-)
