The Key to God's Heart

The Buds had to wait until the last week of February for our meeting that dealt with the virtue of Piety.  Our theme for this meeting was:
The Key to God's Heart

Our saint for this meeting was St. Cecilia.

We began our meeting with a beautiful coloring image of St. Cecilia which matched the image that we used of her in our year one binder page as well as our holy card.

Then we created our own holy card for our holy card collection.

We used the same image...

The prayer we used was this:

Oh, Lord
I beseech Thee,
That my heart may be only Thine.

Before beginning our craft, we had a wonderful discussion to remind ourselves of what piety looks like, and with it being the beginning of Lent, we discussed how our Lenten promises of extra prayer, fasting and alms giving are perfect ways to show grow in piety.

Our craft was, in fitting with the theme, a key chain. 

The girls colored them, added jewels and found a great place from which to hang them.

And, as without fail, Mrs. A presented us with a beautiful and tasty creation for our snack.

Thanks, Mrs. A!

Keep planting seeds...
