Living the Liturgical Year

Happy feast day of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary!

I surprised the kids this morning with a small deviation from our normal homeschooling routine.  We usually do religion lessons and prayers first thing, but today we had a lesson on the history of Our Lady of the Rosary and the miraculous Battle of Lepanto.

After our lesson, the boys each made a rosary out of mini marshmallows and Hershey's kisses.  We talked about the beauty of the Sacred Mysteries and how we meditate upon them while praying.  It's like we are sitting at the foot of Our Mother while she teaches us about her Son.

It was a very thoughtful and sweet morning.

But some of us were only in it for the chocolate!
