Peacock and Dove

I can't for the life of me remember why I had Sophia make a peacock.  Weird.
Therese's dove is definitely because of learning more about the Holy Spirit/Christ's Baptism. 
You can find the crafts here and here.

Very Cute!! I'l have to keep those in mind for the Easter Season!

Oh, and on the peacock, from Fisheaters:

"Peacock: As a symbol of immortality (even St. Augustine believed the peackock's flesh to have "antiseptic qualities" and that it didn't corrupt), the peacock became a symbol of Christ and the Resurrection. Its image embellished everything from the Catacombs to everyday objects, like lamps, especially in early Romanesque and Byzantine churches. (The peacock, for obvious reasons, was also used as a symbol for pride, too)"

I can't help you there. :)

I AM going to keep it in mind for week 7 of the Garden of the Good Shepherd, if I decide I want to add a craft to our Garden Party. I love it! I wish I would have seen it before we did "P" week... It would have tied in perfectly!
