Miracle of the Sun Edible Feast!

Today we are celebrating the final apparition at Fatima ~The Miracle of the Sun
~October 13th~
And the Message of Fatima...
Our family never seems to tire of this amazing event!

*I have a special devotion to this miracle as I have been blessed to see the Miracle of the Sun in Medjugorje! But that is another story... another post on my list for "someday"...*

~Yesterday, we decided to have a Miracle of the Sun Tea and Lunch in honor of Our Lady of the Rosary~
On October 13, 1917, in Fatima, Portugal, Our Lady appeared for her promised miracle.
The sun seemed to revolve about three times within ten minutes, and cast off great shafts of colored light which fell upon the sky and earth, hence the rainbow colors often associated with this miracle of the spinning sun.
Our Menu:
(Based on the rainbow colors of the spinning sun)
Rainbow Pasta Alfredo
Rainbow Fruit Salad
Rainbow punch Tea
Miracle of the Sun Krispy Treats
These Miracle of the Sun Krispy Treats were definitely the hit!
We just followed the instructions for Rice Krispy Treats but used rainbow-colored Fruity Krisp Rice Cereal instead.  After spreading them on to a large cookie sheet, we used a sun-shaped cookie cutter to cut out the shapes.  Then used a squeezable white icing for the spinning, swirling, effect!
Princess had the idea to add yellow sparkles for the shining sun.
This one(below) didn't have sparkles.
~Our cookie cutter was large so we decided to share these 3 treats~
Last May, we made this fun Miracle of the Sun Fruit Platter...
But didn't have the chance to do that yesterday!
I was rather sad that our group photo turned out kind of dark...but I'm posting it anyway!
2yo Angel Baby was Looooving using a real teacup!
Mmmmm, good!
How can you resist Rainbow Sherbet Punch tea!
We just mixed Rainbow Sherbet and Sprite!
Who says boys don't love a tea party?
~We are renewing our commitment to the Rosary and prayers for peace~
Our Lady of Fatima, Queen of Peace, may we always profit by your prayers, for you bring us life and salvation through Jesus Christ your Son.  Hear our prayer and give us peace in our time that we may rejoice in God's mercy and praise Him without end.  Amen

  5. such simple things -- like rainbow sherbet in sprite -- and you've got a wonderful miravcle of the sun symbol. I didn't realize the rice krispies could be bought in friut colors. I'll have to look for that. Just beautiful! and can't wait to hear about your pilgrimage to Medjugorje!

  7. Tiffany: Thanks for the St. Therese book recommendation. The bookstore at the St. Therese Shrine had so many wonderful books on St. Therese -- I had a hard time choosing. I picked up "Therese: the Saint who loved us." I'm devouring it. I will pick up the one you recommend. The display in our Art Room is from They have great faith formation materials.

    Looking forward to reading about your Medugorje pilgrimage. My pilgrimages have been so meaningful and I've received many graces from them. Oh that i could take more.
