Humble, However Chosen

Viva il Papa!  Long live the Pope!
I think we are falling for this Holy Father.  The humility of Pope Francis is inoculating us with love!  The motto on the Papal Crest, "Humble, however chosen," just about says it all.     This is a brief and informative video about the new Pope Francis coat of arms.
Today, being the Papal inauguration was the perfect time to get to know him a little better.  Connie from Contemplative Homeschool had all the resources we needed to do it!  She provides a great bio for kids and linked up to some great worksheets and coloring:) Be sure to stop over and check it out.
Each of the kids wrote a letter to Pope Francis to welcome him!  (Great practice in letter writing:)  Everyone is wondering if we will hear back!??

It always so sweet to hear what they have to say!

Everyone wanted to include a photo of themselves...

Neat coloring page found at Paper Dali.

We closed out our study with some Italian Crescent Pizza Roll-ups for lunch!
I found this super easy and yummy recipe on Pinterest.  It was a HUGE hit!  Only 3 ingredients...
Crescent rolls
Mozzerella cheese sticks
We printed out these cute Papal Coat of Arms over at Catholic Cuisine.  One of the children commented that "we didn't even know Pope Francis a few days ago when he was elected...And now we feel close to him." 
It was a special day, indeed.


  1. Wow! You did a GREAT job celebrating this feast day and our new pope!

  2. Thanks for linking to my post. The crescent rolls look delicious. Too bad we're wheat-free at our house!

  3. I Have followed your blog for years and rarely ever comment, I wanted you to know I am praying for you and your family in this coming Holy Week. I guess I felt a little nudge from the Holy Spirit to let you know. God bless you and thank you for your blog! Praying for you!

    1. Thank you so much, Lauren...You have really touched my heart! I appreciate the prayers as I head up to the cemetery this weekend for my annual "Calvary" pilgrimage. Your prayers mean more than you will ever know. I could just hug you:) God bless you for reaching out!

  4. Oh my goodness! What a fun celebration. How did I miss that Paper Dali had a coloring sheet- we are such be fans of V!!

  5. I may be eligible for an award for "Latest Comment Ever." Eek. After a long sabbatical from Paper Dali, I'm up and running once more, and I saw this in my feed.

    LOVED seeing those cutie pies coloring the Pope Francis coloring page. Warmed my heart. Thanks so much for sharing the photo!

    Peace and blessings,
