Hot Cross Buns
The legend goes that Clare of Assisi had a reputation for holiness,
so much the Holy Father wanted to meet her.
St. Clare was very hospitable and placed loaves of bread on the tables
for the pope to bless as a keepsake for the Sisters. But
the Pope declined and told Clare to bless the bread herself
with the sign of the cross. She did not feel worthy
but since he insisted, she reluctantly did so.
When she finished her prayer...an image of a cross miraculously
appeared on each loaf.
And now you know the legend of the hot cross buns.
