During this liturgical season, we devote ourselves in a special way to the intimate relationship we want to have with God, and the healthy and holy life we want to share with one another. During Lent, the Church explicitly calls us to pray, to fast, and togive freely to those in need (almsgiving). During this time,we choose to prioritize what we know is of ultimate value: our faith in Jesus Christ.
Throughout Lent, our school classes will talk about how we can walk closer with Jesus during these 40 days. Together, as parents and catechists, we can help our children better understand the simple practices of prayer by inviting them to pray in any moment throughout the day. We can point out that just as our bodies get hungry for food, our souls get hungry for Jesus. And we can model almsgiving for our children by asking them to join with us in the special giving we do at this time of year. These 40 days give all of us the opportunity to help our children celebrate the true meaning of Easter.
