Lesson Notes: Prayer, Fasting, Almsgiving

We’re at the very beginning of Lent and that season will likely be a little more fruitful, spiritually, if you prepare a little.

It’s quite simple: we’re going to go over the basics of Lent focusing on prayer, fasting, and almsgiving,  and will give practical suggestions on how you can implement them all into your family life. These are three ancient, proven paths to growth in holiness. You’ll find them all over the place in Scripture, but also in the lives of the Saints, in the liturgy … really whenever anyone is giving any kind of spiritual advice prayer, fasting, and almsgiving are going to be the stars.

It is always good to grow in knowledge of a topic, so we recommend teaching your kids something about all three of them, but the real prize is conversion, so definitely choose one of the activity ideas and put it into practice. We guarantee that practice will be an open door for the Holy Spirit to come in and help you along that path to holiness.
