THE CHRISTIAN LIFE IN THE MODERN WORLD


LET CHILDREN AIM HIGH

We should see our children’s youth not as a hindrance to bold acts of love, but as an asset.

 

"I'm giving up snacks for Lent.” This resolution on the part of a co-worker, friend, or spouse might present itself as laudable. You’d cheer this person on and offer support. But what if it comes from your 8-year-old? The one who can’t seem to manage the few hours before lunch without a second breakfast large enough to satisfy a hungry hobbit?

LENTEN TIPS FOR FAMILIES

Parents and Grandparents, Encourage Children in Drawing Closer to Christ

 

Lent should be less about “what we do” and more about walking with Christ in the desert, allowing our hearts and the hearts of our children and grandchildren to draw closer to Jesus through deeper prayer, fasting and almsgiving.

 

Here are some simple tips and ideas for a fruitful Lent with young children:

GET OFF SOCIAL MEDIA

Life goes on with or without social media. It might be time to go on without it, at least for a season.

 

I met my wife volunteering for a Catholic summer camp. Each week we corralled high schoolers through the wilds of Pennsylvania, leading them in hikes, climbing, padding, and all other manner of adventure. Even with the best safety protocols out there, these activities have a real thrill inherent in them. And yet, we found that normally it wasn’t such potential danger that made the teenagers nervous for the week. 

 

It was being without their cell phones.

LAETARE SUNDAY

FOURTH SUNDAY OF LENT

 

Laetare is the first word — meaning “rejoice” — in the Latin text.

 

On Laetare Sunday (as similarly with the Third Sunday of Advent’s Gaudete Sunday) the Church expresses hope and joy in the midst of our Lenten fasts and penances. Call it pink — or, more fittingly, rose — this change in color indicates a glimpse of the joy that awaits us at Easter, just before we enter into the somber days of Passiontide. -SimplyCatholic.com
