Teacher AND Saint

A few weeks ago, I started noticing signs along the roadside for a Festival at St Barbara's Church

In the back of my mind, I made a mental note of the date thinking it might be fun for us to check it out

The week of the Festival, I said aloud to Lucy as we drove home

Lucy, what do you think of going to St Barbara's Festival this weekend?

I watched her in my rear view mirror waiting for a response

Lucy, who had her nose buried in book, lowered it down onto her lap in slow motion and looked at me with her mouth agape and after a few seconds of silence said in a mixed tone of disbelief and amazement

Mama! Miss Barbara is my teacher AND a Saint????

Yes Lucy, yes she is......
