I am trying these for the first time so I hope to follow-up with an opinion. So far, they look good.
We are learning to pray the Liturgy of the Hours, using this abbreviated version to start with!
3. Lenten Calendar
We found that these cute little picture holders (someone gave this one to me for a gift) come in handy to display holy cards!
Isn't this St. Joseph picture a great find from the Dollar Tree?
6. Lenten Candles
This year I decided to paint my own for our dinner table centerpiece during Lent. We light one purple candle each Sunday (much like Advent). Except for Laetare Sunday (Fourth Sunday during Lent) when we light the rose colored candle. The candles are set in sand to represent the 40 days that Jesus spent in the desert, hence our own 40 days of Lent...cleansing our hearts and souls and preparing for new life. The 7th Sunday is Easter Sunday and we can light our Paschal candle after that!
Last year I finally found some purple fabric to drape our cross. This cross hangs on the landing of our staircase, now ready for Lent!
My Liturgical Wreath for the month of March is Lenten in color and spirit. All materials came from the Dollar Tree, of course! (Minus the Crucifix) Am I a Dollar Tree addict or what? The lilies represent St. Joseph since the month of March is dedicated to him. My tutorial for this wreath and a St. Patrick's Day wreath can be found here.
