St. Ambrose is called the \”Honey-Tongued Doctor\”. He had a way with words that calmed many angry situations. He is a doctor of the church and because of both of these facts, we created an ornament which depicts a honey bee. The bee is a symbol of wisdom and they make honey! St. Ambrose is also the patron saint of candle makers (workers of wax), Ya, we have lots of those these days! 😉 Anyway, he\’s also the patron saint of students, bee keepers and learning. His feast day is Dec. 7th (new and traditional). Read his story HERE.
You will need:
- Cut out the parts as shown above.
- Use black marker to add the strips and a black head to the bee. Use the brown marker to out-line the candle. Use the orange marker to add detail to the flame, and use a blue marker to out-line the bee\’s wings.
- Glue down the candle and the flame. Then add the bee\’s body. Finally add the bee\’s wings. After everything is glued down, cut off the extra blue background. Use a blue marker to add an edge to the background.
- Add a threaded loop to the top so it can be hung up.
St. Ambrose, pray for us!
