Gifts to MY Heart today ~

St.Mary's Prayer Shawl Ministry

Sunday, June 3,2012
by a 'newcomer' in church
who saw our 1st official notice
of meeting day & time!

and my knitting friend in Queens,NY,
asked if we needed knitters!!!

how wonderful God's answer
to my prayers!!

from my sidebar: St.Christopher

Before the 1969 reform of the Roman calendar, Christopher was listed as a martyr who died under Decius. Nothing else is known about him. There are several legends about him including the one in which he was crossing a river when a child asked to be carried across. When Christopher put the child on his shoulders he found the child was unbelievably heavy. The child, according to the legend, was Christ carrying the weight of the whole world. This was what made Christopher patron saint of travelers and is invoked against storms, plagues, etc.. His former feast day is July 25.
