Divine Mercy Sunday Brunch

I thought it would be fun to do something new to celebrate Divine Mercy Sunday:  a "red and blue" brunch:

We had:

1) Baked French Toast with red "rays" made of strawberries and blue "rays" made of blueberries:

2) Skewers of red strawberries and blueberries

3) White grape juice tinted red with grenadine:

During the meal, I talked with the kids about St. Faustina and the Divine Mercy promise.  You can find out more about it here and here.

Later on today we will be attending reconciliation and praying the Divine Mercy chaplet at a nearby parish.  I'm hoping this little celebration will eliminate a bit of the anxiety that comes with going to confession while helping the kids better understand God's infinite mercy.  Who knows, maybe it will become a looked-toward tradition in our home!

  1. Yes, very beautiful Cheryl! Your children will remember this feast day for your creative faith formation methods. I think children do learn better with visual aids to support the feast.
