Every St. Joseph’s Day, for as long as I remember, my mom would regale us with the story of the Swallows of Capistrano. She would do this while cooking us breakfast when we lived at home, or in a phone call to me at work when I was on my own. I’m even lucky enough to have saved a card she sent me at college with the story written long hand….
In her honor, I’m picking up the torch and sharing this lovely story with you.
If you want to read more about this lovely mission and the legend of the swallows, head over to the Mission website.
Happy St. Joseph’s Day and a special happy birthday to my niece Sarah who shares this day with the swallows.
