Wow, it has been forever since I posted anything. With us getting sick and my husband having a crazy business travel schedule I just have not had the energy for extra things. But we are back! Here is what we are immersing our senses into this month.
Composer: Johann Sebastian Bach, hello I don’t have to post anything more. We all know this guy and we are all (or should be) familiar with his music. Instead of posting a well known Bach composition I went on a hunt for a lesser known classic.
Cantata 157: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cy9pVA0Iof8
Artist: Sketch by James Barry, ‘Baptism of Oengus’, this is a painting of St. Patrick which was in the Irish Parliament until a fire destroyed it in 1794. http://www.confessio.ie/more/article_moss/image27
You can follow this link to a good article on the many other depictions of St. Patrick: http://www.confessio.ie/more/article_moss
Saint: Of course every year it is Saint Patrick! The kids love this story. It is a great one for boys especially. The story has a very adventurous plot. Have your young ones act out the story. http://www.catholic.org/saints/saint.php?saint_id=89
