Ash Wednesday.

A new background for our computer - we change the background to reflect our current study/artist and the liturgical year.....Currently, we have on one computer, an icon of The Last Judgement. You can see an image

Attending Mass this evening, after what looks to be a VERY busy day today.

"The Christian Church has observed the weeks before Easter as a time of penitence and spiritual self-examination.Self examination means looking back at our past deeds analytically."

From the holiday spot website.This site has info, free wallpaper ( see above for one example), colouring in sheets on Ash Wednesday and on other feasts and other "holidays".

We are having a prayer focus for Lent , and the children are learning more Latin prayers - the Anima Christi is one of these.

"Prayer is a 'vital and personal relationship with the living and true God'". - CCC#2558

Off now to workout, drive to and attend a work meeting with the kids in tow, and teach medieval crafts at homeschool Group Learning!
