Saint Anthony & Christ Child Ornament

The Gothic arches of Saints Peter and Paul Catholic Church, Mankato, Minessota, are pierced with luminous stained glass windows.

On the left wall of the church, between the Resurrection and the Annunciation, there is the Nativity.

It's a marvelous depiction: Joseph keeps watch, and Mary kneels, hand raised to cover the Slumbering Child.

Even the small detail of the Babe, (above right), shows the beauty of Saints Peter and Paul's sacred art.

One is grateful to those who gave so generously to the glory of God, including the Nativity window donor family of Charles Schwarble, whose name appears in a golden ribbon in the bottom stained glass.

On the second floor of the dark brick church office building next door is the church museum, filled with treasures —candelabra, richly embroidered vestments and processional banners, fine lace altar cloths, crucifixes — and Parish Administrator Mark Frederick is kind enough to give me a tour.

Two vintage die cuts are resting against a small column capital: In one, Saint Anthony is holding a lily and The Child. The other shows Child Jesus, arms outstretched in embrace.

They inspired the Saint Anthony and Christ Child Ornament that we're sharing with you as a Free Download.

Print as many ornaments as you'd like, make as many as you'd like and display separately, or as one piece (as shown) above.

I would like to thank the Saints Peter and Paul Parish for this beautiful ornament.

Enjoy!
