Lent Calendars

by | Feb 24, 2021 | Lent, Lenten Calendar | 1 comment

On Ash Wednesday we pulled out our annual Lenten Calendar for our little ones… 
We’ve been using variations of this calendar for the past 18 years! 
You can find the free printable documents for our current version in the archives: 
Another annual favorite is the lovely printable calendar from Kimberly’s daughter Lydia. These two requested it before I had a chance to even look for the download this year! It can be found here.

Ever since their gorgeous Easter Calendar last year we have also really loved incorporating the illustrated calendars from Liturgy of the Home! 
I printed out the first part of the Illustrated Lent Calendar and hung it on the bottom half of one of my pantry doors for our little ones to discover and study. 
 

It didn’t take our three year old long to spot St. Peter’s Chair, when I asked if she could find it after she woke up Monday morning, on the feast of the Chair of St Peter! Even my brother-in-law (our local pastor) was amazed at all the details included for each day when the children were showing it to him yesterday afternoon when he joined us for lunch.
 
You can read more about how our family has observed Lent in the past here:
Grant us Lord, the grace to begin the Christian’s war of defense with holy fasts: that, as we do battle with the spirts of evil, we may be protected by the help of self-denial.

    So excited to see LG's lent calendar here. We were sad when it didn't appear on the PonderedInMyHeart blog. It's become a long-standing tradition here. Thanks for sharing!

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
