"And round the throne, on each side of the throne, are four living creatures, full of eyes in front and behind: the first living creature like a lion, the second living creature like an ox, the third living creature with the face of man, and the fourth living creature like a flying eagle." Revelation 4:6-7
We made these cute and simple sandwiches for last year's "Heavenly Zoo Garden Party" inspired by Charlotte. I'm planning on making them again today in honor of the feast of St. Mark, since he is symbolized by a winged lion. Our sandwiches were just turkey and cheese, surrounded by shredded carrot. Add a couple chocolate chips for the eyes and pipe on frosting for the mouth.
I may also serve some Lion and Cheese Crackers, which I came up with for our 2011 Heavenly Zoo Garden Party. This little guy was inspired by a Bear Cheese and Crackers Snack, to which I made a couple tiny modifications. Our Flower Silicone Cups worked great for his mane and the kids loved the cheese, crackers and olives.

O Glorious St. Mark, through the grace of God our Father, you became a great Evangelist, preaching the Good News of Christ. May you help us to know Him well so that we may faithfully live our lives as followers of Christ. Amen.
