I belong to a parish that, although small in parishioners, is devout within our faith.
We only have 15 children, and this is their Christmas gift from me this year. I purchased small, vellum envelopes to contain the cross pennies AND the crosses, but to also allow the tiny cross to be visible in their view. I don't want it to get lost in the opening of the magic!
Our priest has also blessed them for each child, which is, for me, "the icing on the blessing."
I'm anxious to witness the obvious joy...
