The highlight of the meal was this cake which focuses upon the famous words of St Ambrose the bishop who said to the distraught St Monica, "A son of so many tears cannot be lost."
The cakes represent the prayerful tears of St Monica, the St Augustine biscuit/cookie on top tells us that he was raised to a bishop and raised to a saint through those prayers and tears.
I have to say it was a YUMMIEST catechetical lesson ever!
Pop on over to Catholic Cuisine to see how I made it and then you may like to read my posting on St Monica, St Augustine and spiritual motherhood over at Spiritual Motherhood for Priests.
Happy Feast Day!
