King St. Louis IX

The mouth of the just shall meditate wisdom, and his tongue shall speak judgment: the law of his God is in his heart.

We had our first Mass in the schloss chapel this evening - offered in honor of St. Louis IX, King of France. The celebration continued at home with French wines and cheeses as well as lots and lots of crepes.

Devoted husband, good father of eleven children, just ruler, and twice a crusader, Louis is the embodiment of the ideal of the Christian King.

Maria went to bed in the evening still honoring the good king!
