Use This Blessed Month with your children to help them learn and live the sacred traditions of our Catholic faith
Your kids probably already know the popular "themes" of the months of the year: snow for January, hearts for February, rain and umbrellas for April, fall leaves for September, and so on. But did your kids know that the Church has its own themes for the months of the year? These themes typically take their cue from some important event or observance in the liturgical calendar for the month. You won't find these themes listed in any official Church document or the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Instead, the practice of certain devotions during a particular month emerged from among ordinary Catholics beginning in about the eleventh century.
This Blessed Month is a way for your family to begin practicing these special monthly devotions. It's designed to introduce the theme of each month in a kid-friendly way, with supporting prayers, activities, stories, and Scriptures for you to do together. Writing space is also included to help you keep track of your family's prayer intentions for the month.
