I love special days when they bring out the extra fancy monstrance.
|I apologize for the quality, I am clearly not good with point and shoot cameras!|
For certain feasts, they usually have a statue or some small shrine area set up to commemorate what they are celebrating.
For this feast, according to legend, St. Clare was entertaining a bishop for dinner when he asked her to say the blessing over the food. She was reluctant but obedient, and when she blessed the food, a cross appeared on the bread. In that spirit, the nuns put out baskets of blessed buns.
We decided to wait until we left Adoration to indulge in our holy morsels.
I know I'm a day late, but...Happy Feast Day, sisters.
