Lenten Resources

Here are some wonderful resources for Lent, as you seek to accompany Jesus on His way to the cross through your prayers and sacrifices:

Lenten Sacrifice Cross:
Simply click on the teal words, "Lenten Cross" and you can download a nice copy to print out for each of the kids, to help them stay focused on their sacrifice each day!

Mercy Cross:
Follow these easy directions for practicing the Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy, finishing at Easter with a visual representation of all your sacrificial gifts for Jesus!

Lenten Pinboard:
Here is the Catholic Sistas pinboard for Lent on Pinterest.  It's filled with wonderful links and ideas!

Catholic Icing:
As usual, Lacy has lots of hands-on ideas for small children to really engage in Lent, from cheap and simple meatless meals to a Lenten Path to color!

Tomb Garden:
If you've got a green thumb, here's a nice indoor project to do in anticipation of finding the empty tomb on Easter morning!

Lenten Prayer Chain:
Jennifer has included some easy printables to make a Lenten Prayer Chain, as well as LOTS more activities for Lent and Easter (the latter for those who like to plan ahead!), including a clothes pin crucifix, how to braid palm branches, and a list of Link Ups with at least 20 more easy, fun, practical ideas!

Good Friday Meal:

Jessica sets a wonderful table for Good Friday, full of simple foods with symbolic meanings to help draw your family closer to the Stations of the Cross!

Lenten Pinboard:
I just started a pinboard for Lent, as well.  Please let me know of any helpful ideas for Lent that we can pin and share with everyone!
