Kids’ Feast!

Hi, Ceci, Finn, Gus, Kieran, and Baby Mary – I miss you, both families, EVERY day, but this afternoon  I thought of you especially, when I went to the celebration of St. Joseph. YOU WOULD HAVE LOVED BEING HERE, I know!

carpetMany of the houses had these carpets with a photograph of St. Joseph hanging over the railings of their balcony.

The main street was lined with palms that looked as if they were growing oranges!

I always thought Mary, Joseph and Baby Jesus were on a donkey, during The Flight Into Egypt, but today, it was a horse – in fact, 4 horses.  Well, who knows, maybe the Holy Family had  a horse?  Anyhow, I’ll post a short video (of the horses) on FB –

The Holy Family minus Jesus (at least I didn’t see him anywhere)

The priest spoke (I have a video for Facebook, because  it won’t work on this page). After that, people went up and had some of the special bread for the day. I was in the morning procession, where we picked up the bread and marched with  it to this altar on the main street of the village!

Hair!

Finn, Gus, and Kieran, this one’s for you —

Love,

  1. Lovely. I actually forgot St Joseph day this year. Would have loved to be there wherever you are to see this pageantry.
