This is an excellent guide book walking you through ways to rebuild Catholic culture in your family by celebrating the feasts. It introduces many feasts and then offers ways in which the author's family has celebrated them. This book was very helpful in my ongoing quest to center my family around the Faith. Throw out the TV.
Read great Catholic stories out loud to your family. Celebrate the feast days. Your children and spouse will love the cohesion and beauty this brings to them. But key to starting is to plug up the pipe unloading sewage into the home throw out the TV! I bought this book a couple of years ago, and I am so glad I have it.
The feasts and prayers are traditional, the stories are delightful, and the author has a simple way of incorporating the Catholic celebrations into everyday life. I admire how she used what they had very little to make the most of crafts and feasts.
The explanations of the feasts and stories of the saints and history of the celebrations help me understand the liturgical year and my faith! This is not a simple book with craft and activities, but a spiritual guide to the year with the Church with practical and prayerful ways to incorporate our Faith into our homes.

Catholic Family Celebrations for Every Season. This book is great for everyone, not just your children. It helped me to remember why we as catholics do some of the family rituals that we do. A great way for new catholics to learn and grow with their children too! I began to read the book and I began to read the book and saw in the first few pages how useful it will be.
I think it will be a great way to help my children live their faith each day and also love it. Wonderful history and traditions of the Catholic Faith. I was looking for more of a how-to I guess.
The Year & Our Children: Catholic Family Celebrations for Every Season [Mary Reed Newland] on uzotoqadoh.tk *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers. Editorial Reviews. From the Inside Flap. Celebrate the Faith with your kids all year round! The Year & Our Children: Catholic Family Celebrations for Every Season - Kindle edition by Mary Reed Newland. Religion & Spirituality Kindle eBooks.
The book walks you through the liturgical year, starting with Advent and progresses chronologically through the major and popular feast days and seasons. The book offers a litany of suggestions for how you can help your child celebrate the Church year at home. The book was written in pre-Vatican II so some of the suggestions in this book seem a little dated, but there are still plenty of suggestions that are relevant for today's Catholic family. There are a few areas in the book where you can see how some Church traditions seem to have disappeared as a result of the changes brought about by Vatican II.
I found those areas to be rather interesting. For every season or feast day, the author offers many suggestions for introducing prayer into your daily family life. Some of it seems a little over the top, but much of it seems totally feasible. What you chose to incorporate into your own family's spiritual life will depend on what your family is up to trying.
She also offers ideas for craft projects and treats. Some of the craft projects seemed a little difficult to visualize since there are no pictures or diagrams to accompany the suggestions. Teach your kids how to make an Advent wreath, who the real Santa was, and the wonder of the 12 days of Christmas. The holy days of Lent and Easter provide opportunities for children to enthusiastically embrace sacrifice and All Souls' Day and All Saints' Day can replace the modern day occult feeling given to Halloween.
Make use of the suggestions found in this family classic and give your children a lifelong gift of faith, lived out day by day and season to season. Paperback Number of Pages: A Mother's Rule of Life: My Path to Heaven: Lisa Flinn , Barbara Younger.
