This month the girls learned about the virtue of Hope. The "flower" this month was Ivy because like ivy we should cling to our Lord with Hope that he will answer our prayers. The saint was Saint Monica who prayed for many many years for the conversion of her husband and son. For the craft they made large sacrifice bead chains, taught by St. Therese to mark your daily prayers of sacrifice. They could write down the name of someone they want to pray for at the top and practice the virtue of Hope as they trust that the Lord will answer their prayers and honor their sacrifices. Another successful month (I get to teach next time).
