Little Brother came home from school today with a religion project he’d made on the computer. For November, the month of All Saints, the students in his class had found quotes from different saints and made signs with pictures of the saints and their quote.
St. Martin de Porres
Compassion, my dear Brother, is preferable to cleanliness.
For a boy who thinks that just about ANYTHING is preferable to cleanliness, these are definitely words to live by.

I love this quote! And isn’t it so true, says the mom who isn’t always so compassionate. God bless you and your wise child!
And isn’t that something for a boy who scared his mom nearly to death over the weekend?!? I say wow.
I should have been more clear. He made that poster in early November. The teacher had the posters hanging in the classroom for the month, then sent them home. So it’s just one of those neat things that “happen.”
Plus, the cleanliness thing made me laugh. So typical for my boy!
