Lenten Adventure for Friday, Saturday & the 2nd Sunday in Lent
Deal of the Day

Today we are going to talk about the Stations of the Cross. Many parishes have the Stations of the Cross devotion on Fridays during Lent. It is a very good idea to take your children there to pray with the rest of the parish if you can. We sometimes do that, but we also pray the Stations of the Cross at home--and not just on Fridays during Lent.

The Stations of the Cross is a great devotion for children because they can really understand what is happening and see the series of events right there in the Church, or in the devotional book, and then every time they go to church it is wonderful that they will really understand what each of those pictures around the church means.

Today we have included the introduction from our Holy Heroes Stations of the Cross CD. We will add the audio for each station in succession on each daily email from now on, so that young children can let each station really sink in without being overwhelmed by all of them at once (just like we offer just a "decade-a-day" of the rosary).

NOTE: Last Friday, Trey led our family in the Stations of the Cross at home by reading the captions to the coloring pages of our "Road to Calvary" coloring book -- and they were really good meditations!  They are not just one-liners, but good descriptions of what was going on at each Station. The rest of the kids (and Mom & Dad, too!) found much to ponder.  You might want to try it, yourself!
