Purpose of this Blog...

You may have noticed that not all books are equal in capturing children's imaginations and in cultivating those innocent, tender souls. My goal is to help you find the ones that do!

A Crown of Light for St. Lucia

Sulamith Wülfing – "Crown of Light"

Lucia means "light".  She is commemorated on the day of her martyrdom, December 13.  To read about how this 4th-century Christian girl from Italy who died for her faith came to be celebrated throughout Europe and especially the Scandinavian countries, click here.

Some glimpses of my parish's St. Lucia celebration...
After our Lucia Procession, we had a reception for all the families.  Coffee and Lucia Buns were served, and a very special visitor showed up...
He brought lots of gold coins!
My goddaughters enjoying themselves - making
Lucia buns was hard work!
