St. Bega coloring page preview - with St. Oswald
This is one of the coloring pages newly made especially for The Day-by-Day Coloring Book of Saints, Volume 2, which contains saints for every single day of July through December. It's available here or from Amazon.
This fairy-tale-like scene is the page for St. Bega, an Irish hermitess. Her hermitage was so remote nobody but the birds knew she was there, until St. Oswald, King of Northumbria, came across her when he was out hunting bandits. He persuaded her to join a nunnery under the authority of St. Aidan. Her day is September 6.
Volume 1, which has January-June, is available here.
