A Blessed St. Joseph's Day

Today is St. Joseph's Day, when legend says that the swallows return to Mission San Juan Capistrano here in Southern California.

SONG OF THE SWALLOWS, which tells the story of the birds returning each year, is one of my youngest son's very favorite books. It has beautiful watercolor illustrations, which won the Caldecott Medal in 1950.

More photos of the mission, as well as further historical information, can be found here.
