12 Days of Christmas for My Priest: Day 10

On the tenth day of Christmas, my friend Jenn gave to me:  ten minutes of spiritual reading, nine chapters read of the Gospels, eight chapters read of the NT, seven prayers throughout the day, six chapters read of the OT, FIVE MINUTES OF SILENCE!  (Shhh…), all four rosaries, three acts of penance, two photographs, and one hour of Adoration!

The Tenth Day of Christmas

On the tenth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me: ten lords-a-leaping, nine ladies dancing, eight maids-a-milking, seven swans-a-swimming, six geese-a-laying, five golden rings, four calling birds, three French hens, two turtle doves, and a partridge in a pear tree!

In the Middle Ages, lords could, to some extent, define the law within their own lands. So the lords are the Ten Commandments.

To celebrate, they suggest having a family game day, including jumping and running activities. I don’t have anyone else at home to play games with, but I can probably jump around a bit. 🙂
