Vatican Flag and Pope Francis' Papal Coat of Arms Cupcake Toppers {Free Printables}

We are baking cupcakes to celebrate the Solemnity Feast of St. Joseph and the Installation of Pope Francis today.  I thought I would upload and share the cupcake toppers I created with you all.  Here are the links:

Prayer to Saint Joseph for the Whole Church

O Glorious Saint Joseph, you were chosen by God to be the foster father of Jesus, the most pure spouse of Mary, ever Virgin, and the head of the Holy Family. You have been chosen by Christ's Vicar as the heavenly Patron and Protector of the Church founded by Christ. 

Protect the Sovereign Pontiff and all bishops and priests united with him. Be the protector of all who labor for souls amid the trials and tribulations of this life; and grant that all peoples of the world may be docile to the Church without which there is no salvation.

Dear Saint Joseph, accept the offering I make to you. Be my father, protector, and guide in the way of salvation. Obtain for me purity of heart and a love for the spiritual life. After you example, let all my actions be directed to the greater glory of God, in union with the Divine Heart of Jesus, the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and your own paternal heart. Finally, pray for me that I may share in the peace and joy of your holy death. Amen.

St. Joseph, Patron of the Universal Church,
Ora Pro Nobis!

  1. What a great idea. The kids begged for cream puff cake so we are honoring Pope Francis with the leftover Argentinian wine.

  2. I discovered your blog this morning- so many wonderful ideas! I teach in a Catholic school. I look forward to trying and sharing some of these recipes with the faculty and students. Wishing you a beautiful Holy Week and a joyful Easter! Pax
