Catholic Birder

Birds have had my attention for over 30 years. God for just a few. Before birds were a passion. Now they are a confirmation. Saint Francis of Assisi, patron of birds, pray for us.

What Sandi must feel like some mornings

Taking another look at the exhibit profiled in the Post this morning I must draw the comparison of this painting to the occasional drama my wife endures. Though Sandi is far more beautiful than a grackle (I’m thinking Swan) and our four toddler boys are much more polite than these not-quite-fledglings, there are some mornings when this painting resembles the scene in our kitchen at about 7:30 AM.

Here again is a direct link to some of the paintings on exhibit. Sandi would say the third painting is me because the nestlings are quiet.

My little sisters, the birds, much bounden are ye unto God, your Creator, and always in every place ought ye to praise Him, for that He hath given you liberty to fly about everywhere, and hath also given you double and triple rainment; moreover He preserved your seed in the ark of Noah, that your race might not perish out of the world; still more are ye beholden to Him for the element of the air which He hath appointed for you; beyond all this, ye sow not, neither do you reap; and God feedeth you, and giveth you the streams and fountains for your drink; the mountains and valleys for your refuge and the high trees whereon to make your nests; and because ye know not how to spin or sow, God clotheth you, you and your children; wherefore your Creator loveth you much, seeing that He hath bestowed on you so many benefits; and therefore, my little sisters, beware of the sin of ingratitude, and study always to give praises unto God. Saint Francis of Assisi - c 1220
