Lent is a time to prepare for Easter, but why do we pray, fast and give alms during it? Those acts prepare us, mind and body, for the sacrifice of Lent. Head over to the web site for ideas to make praying, fasting and giving important parts of your family Lent.
On Sunday we celebrate the Baptism of the Lord. Take some time this month to talk to your kids about their own baptism (even if you’ve told the story before!). Talk about who was there, how their godparents were chosen and the celebration after the ritual. Our kids love to hear fun details — our oldest dropped his pacifier in the font and our youngest howled loudly throughout the blessed event. What a great time to share that Jesus is with us always, even when things don’t go as perfectly as planned. Read the complete reflection online.
We asked dozens of Catholic parents for the books they recommend to other parents to help raise kids in the faith. From picture books to faith formation and parenting advice books, here’s what they think should be on your shelf.
