~ The Nativity of St. John the Baptist ~

Sundaes on Sunday
This is a favorite feast day for our family...

We thought we would celebrate the occasion with a few of our favorite things....ice cream, chocolate, and celebratory dishes (not so much the last item mentioned, but I'm trying to watch my sugar/fat intake - although they do add to the fun) :o)

Ordinarily the Church observes the day of a saint's death as his feast, because that day marks his entrance into heaven. To this rule there are two notable exceptions, the birthdays of Blessed Mary and of St. John the Baptist.

I cannot remember when this Feast day landed on a sundae Sunday.  Can you?


St. John the Baptist...PRAY FOR US.
