Feast of the Transfiguration

The Feast of the Transfiguration is coming up! Jesus took three of His Apostles up a mountain by themselves. He was transfigured before them, which means that His body and clothes began to shine very brightly. Jesus was giving these Apostles a glimpse of what He would look like in Heaven.

St. Clare

Deal of the DaySt. Clare’s feast day is also coming up, on August 11! Prepare your children and their friends with our Deal of the Day on Glory Story Vol. 7 for a limited time only!

St. Clare started an order of sisters known as the Poor Clares. Once, a band of Saracen soldiers was attacking Clare’s monastery. Clare carried a monstrance with the Holy Eucharist to one of the towers of the monastery and held it up. Rays of light came out of the monstrance, blinding the attacking Saracens! The Saracens were terrified and ran away. God worked a miracle for Clare and her nuns through His True Presence in the Eucharist.

Craft: Paper Monstrances

Now, let’s make a fun craft we found on Catholic Icing for St. Clare’s feast day. We are going to make monstrances. In a real monstrance, Jesus is displayed in the center so that people can see and worship Him.

Paper Monstrances craftSupplies

  • Foam Board and/or Construction Paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue Stick
  • Gold Paper or Yellow Paper
  • Marker or Pencil
  • Gold Doilies (You may be able to find gold doilies in the cake decorating section of your local craft store. If you can’t find any, you can spray paint white doilies gold, like we did!)
  • Craft Jewels or Sequins (also available in a craft store)
  • Glitter or Glitter Glue

Instructions

  1. Glue a strip of paper or foam board to the bottom half of another piece of paper/foam board. This strip will be an altar for the monstrance. (Caroline used white as the background for her monstrance and green for the altar because we are in Ordinary Time. Lillian used green for her background and white for her altar cloth.)
  2. Next, cut out a monstrance stand from gold or yellow paper. (Mom might want to cut these out for her kids!).
  3. Cut the “host” out of white paper. For a perfect circle, try tracing the base of a cup, or another circular object. You can draw a cross on it with a marker or pencil. Then, glue the host into the middle of the doily.
  4. Then, glue the doily to the paper background above your gold monstrance stand. Now, you have a beautiful monstrance!
  5. Next, you can decorate the monstrance however you want with craft jewels, sequins, glitter, glitter glue, and/or markers or pencils!
