The Feast of Saints Peter and Paul

 June 29th, the Church remembers Sts. Peter and Paul.

"We praise You for St. Peter;
We praise You for St. Paul;
They taught both Jew and Gentile
That Christ is all in all.
To cross and sword they yielded
And saw Your kingdom come;
O God, these two apostles
Reached life through martyrdom."

You can listen to this hymn HERE, a few words different from the one in my hymnal.

Some wonderful ideas for celebrating this Feast day can be found at these sites:

Food for today:

Beer Battered Fish and Chips
(Any fish dish is appropriate today to remember Peter the Fisherman... the Fisher of Men.)

For Snack Time we ate Gold Fish Crackers with Pretzel fishing poles. Also I wanted to make those cute cupcakes, but I was out of steam and we already had a lot of other sweets floating around our kitchen counter so I made Mini Reese's PB Cup Boats instead.

Merciful and eternal God, Your holy apostles Peter and Paul received grace and strength to lay down their lives for the sake of Your Son. Strenghten us by Your Holy Spirit that we may confess Your truth and at all times be ready to lay down our lives for Him who laid down His life for us, even Jesus Christ our Lord.

  1. I love that pretzel stick/pb/goldfish idea. So simple, but I bet kids love "fishing"
