Today, we are celebrating the Queenship of Mary. Emerson made a special crown to remind everyone about this special day. We always try to celebrate saint feast days, and it is very fun and we get to learn about saints. During school, I have a very nice reading book called Stories of the Saints. This week I am reading about Saint Helena, the finder of the True Cross. Her son, Constantine, was in a battle in Rome( this was a long time ago) and looked up and saw a cross that said "in this sign you shall conquer". Later on in Helena's life, she cured a woman who was dying using three crosses that one of them was Jesus's and the woman was cured when touched with the third. I love reading about saints and it is a true gift to be Catholic! By Julia T.
