This week, we’re going to finish up our study of the holy Mass continuing with whatever focus you began last week, and I just want to add a couple things:
This is the ideal time, if you have a strong preference (or even a moderate one, I suppose), to share why you receive the Eucharist in your hand or on your tongue. Both are acceptable, but whichever you choose should be done with highest reverence, being mindful of just Who you are receiving. Share your personal devotion with your kids by taking advantage of this teachable moment.
Also, once your kids have finished going through their My Holy Mass Book, encourage them to bring it with to Mass! Older kids can keep track through the words and younger ones can do it by looking at the pictures – either way, keeping track of what’s going on in the liturgy by using a missal like this can be a very effective way to focus on the Mass in a new light.
