Apple Muffins on the Feast of St. Euphrosynos

It’s nice that the feast of St. Euphrosynos falls right in the middle of apple season. We’re going apple picking with our homeschool co-op in a couple weeks, but every so often that trip coincides with this feast day. We love the simplicity of this humble boy’s life, proving that you don’t have to be a theologian or all that extraordinary to be sanctified.
