Feast Day Fun: St Gertrude

St Gertrude the Great (1256-1302) was a Benedictine mystic and she is patroness of the West Indies.  She was born in Germany and placed in a Benedictine convent at the age of five. She had a vision of Jesus at the age of twenty-six. She wrote a number of books and many prayers, spreading devotion of the Sacred Heart. She is also credited with this special prayer for the souls in Purgatory. Jesus, Himself told her that He would ease the suffering of 1000 souls, release them from purgatory and welcome them into Heaven, each time this prayer is prayed devoutly!

Book Review: Cloud of Witnesses

This is a beautiful board book to introduce your little one to the Saints! I received a copy in exchange for my honest review, but you can pick up your own copy for your child or Godchild through TAN.

I really like the simple and colorful illustrations of the Saints by Meg Whalen and that the text about each saint focuses on a simple and profound quote expressing one of the key teachings of each saint. The durable board book format will not be easily worn and the adorable illustrations will help catch the attention of your little one at Mass or quiet time reading before bed.
