Bagel is Confirmed

So this young lady is begin Confirmed today. We are so excited for her. Here in St. Louis it is the norm to be confirmed in 8th grade so she has prepared at home and will be confirmed with people she doesn't know. This is very different from what we were used to in Houston. I am so exited for her. She picked the beautiful Miss Mary B as her sponsor. (Mary stayed in St. Louis for the week so she could be at the ceremony.)
My kiddos take the saint picking very seriously. This was hard to Bagel. So man of the saints are "taken" by her family members all ready. She looked long and hard to find a unique saint that we had not heard of. Goobers sent her this article on St. Eulalia and Bagel was hooked.  Something about fiery tempers laughter her eye. She learned that this Holy women was from he very early church and the time of the evil Roman emperor Diocletian.

There are two devotions that are very similar yet different from different locations. There is a devotion to St. Eulalia of Barcelona and St. Eulalia of Merida. It is now thought that they are actual devotions to the same young women with some of the details being confused. 

Congratulations to our precious BAGEL! May God bless today and always. WE all ask the St. Eulalia watch over you and pray for you.
Come Holy Spirit!
