Sun and Daughter Moon
by Irene Walsh
A long time ago, when the earth was young, everyone loved Father
Sun. He was the source of all warmth and goodness in their
One day, Father Sun gathered up some star
dust into a large ball and made beautiful Daughter Moon.
He gently placed her in the sky near earth.
She did not have her own light and warmth so Father Sun promised
to always shine his bright light on her so that the people on
earth would be able to see her beauty.

he had honored her lowliness and gave her his only begotten Son
to care for while on his earthly journey to the Cross.

patronage, O Holy Mother of God; despise not our prayers in
our necessities, but ever deliver us from all dangers, O
glorious and blessed Virgin.
