Franciscan Focus

Just a simple blog of a Secular Franciscan trying to live with a Franciscan focus.

Real saints carry swords? 

While celebrating Youngest Nephew's First Communion this weekend ('twas loverly), talk turned to his newest saint medal, which he'd recently picked out while shopping with his mom.

He already had one for St. George, which sports the standard "slaying-the-dragon" image, and the new one is St. Michael the Archangel, who's in the usual "standing-on-the-devil-with-drawn-sword" pose. Whole lotta' swordage goin' on.

Grandma asked him, "So, did you see any medals of St. [insert patron saint name here]?"

Before Youngest Nephew could reply, Oldest Nephew asked, "Who'd he slay?"

He will be a fine protector of his family one day....or a fine defender of the faith. I think our world is going to need plenty of both!
