St. Crispin & St. Crispian
Sparkles eagerly requested that dad make an apple crisp in honor of St. Crispin’s feast day. She loves all apple desserts.
We used Charlotte’s recipe since Rose’s favorite apple crisp recipe calls for oats, which we did not have.
St. Crispin is a patron saint of leather workers and is often depicted with shoemaker’s tools. Thus, we found it only fitting to offer prayers for our dear old friend, Pietro a shoemaker. He is in his 90s and is still making shoes in his little factory. He made Mother Teresa of Calcutta’s sandals. God bless his humble soul.
