Living the Liturgical Year

The Baptism of Jesus

With this Feast, Christmas ends liturgically, though it continues on in spirit and as a liturgical cycle until Candlemas when we recall Mary's post-birth Purification and Our Lord's Presentation in the Temple.

Sunday we celebrated the Baptism of Jesus. Over the weekend, we made Holy Water fonts for each room of the house and read and discussed the Bible story. Sunday we all renewed our Baptismal promises.

Doing these projects and studies as a family is really helping the children grow and understand the also brings us much closer as a family. I know that I'm enjoying it as much as the children!
