Thank you for correcting me, Holly! I hadn't heard that story, but I should have recognized that he was St. Anthony and not St. Francis. We are looking forward to visiting the Grotto at Emmitsburg.
The big statue is actually St. Anthony, when the Eucharist converted the townspeople as even a starving donkey bowed in worship of the Lord, rather than eat the Bread.
Glad you enjoyed a visit to one of our favorite places. Any suggestions I have are better for slightly older kids. But I give a big thumbs up to the Grotto in Emmittsburg.
