As the Sabine trees flower, the bees are getting busy!
The Sabine chapel apple is emitting a low mmmmm.
We have Sabine hives. I will be blessing them soon.
O Lord God Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth! Thou didst create all living things for man’s use. Moreover, thou didst order by the ministry of thy holy Church that candles made from the industry of bees shall burn during the Sacred Mystery in which we consecrate and consume the most holy Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, thy Son. Send thy holy blessing + upon these bees and this beehive to make them numerous and productive, and to preserve them from harm, so that their yield of wax can be turned to thy honor, and to the honor of they Son and Holy Spirit, and to the veneration of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Through the same Christ our Lord.
There is a Sabine bear, these days, so I will probably bless the hives soon.
I don’t know the exact strain of bee, but they are really busy these days.
It is always a pleasure to see them gracefully blundering around.
