Letters of Love is a Lenten Meditation for Catholic families with differently-wired kids. Weekly prompts feature Scripture, inspiration from the saints, and flexible suggestions for prayer, sacrifice, and service. Throughout the course of Lent, you’ll build a collection of love letters to God and one another as a keepsake of your unique family’s spiritual, social, and emotional growth.
When you download the Letters of Love Lenten Meditation, you’ll get a printable packet of handouts for each week. It includes flexible activities, prayers and prompts adaptable to any age or ability level. By the end of Lent, you’ll have a permanent record of your family’s Lenten journey and a notebook full of letters of love.
Each week features:
- inspiration from Scripture and the Saints (including St. Augustine, St. Teresa of Avila, St. Therese of Lisieux, St. Bernadette, and more)
- ideas for living out the three pillars of Lent (prayer, fasting, and almsgiving) in accordance with the Spiritual and Corporal Works of Mercy
- writing prompts (with variations) for family letters
- suggested crafts and family activities
Are you with me? I promise it won’t be overwhelming. You can pick and choose what you want to do and modify as you see fit. Sharing Letters of Love is a way for me to pass on the gift my father gave to me: using the written word to grow closer to Christ and to our own beautiful, uniquely unrepeatable families.
