St. Claude de la Colombiere (Feb. 2, 1641 to Feb. 15, 1682)

"Toyland, toyland, little girl and boy land... once you pass its borders, you can never return again."

Colorforms, Lite-Brite, Candy Land, Barbie dolls, these were all my favorite toys. I loved being a kid and playing with my cousins and friends.
Today's blog entry is dedicated to St. Claude de la Colombiere, a priest and the patron saint of toymakers. He was born in Grenoble, France on Feb. 2, 1641 and entered the Society of Jesus at age 18.
St. Claude de la Colombiere died on Feb. 15, 1682. Canonized: 1992. His feast day is Feb. 15.
