Stations of the Cross
All of the Gospels make it clear that the actual sentence of death on Jesus was delivered by the Roman prefect (governor) of Judaea, Pontius Pilatus (Pontius Pilate).1 Each Gospel also gives some account of Pilate as he confronted Jesus and his accusers and each implies some reluctance on Pilate’s part to sentence what he seemed to perceive as an innocent man to death. But, in the end, he does sentence Him.
Scriptural Stations of the Cross by Saint John Paul II

Adoration with the Daughters
As the world grapples with the reality of the pandemic, social isolation, and the personal fallout from efforts to limit the advance of the coronavirus, it feels like, more than ever, we need the guidance of Jesus in the Eucharist to calm our fears and carry us through only the Good Shepherd knows the pathway through this for all of us together, and for each of us individually.

Printable Stations for Children
It’s a great idea to go over the Stations of the Cross with children during Lent. When we find ourselves traveling on Good Friday (to be with family on Easter) I always print a Stations of the Cross booklet to take with us so we can pray them on the drive.
This Easter Triduum will be unlike any other. In place of public liturgies and gatherings where we come together to accompany Christ during his passion and celebrate the joy of his Resurrection, we will observe these Masses and services virtually from home.

How to make a Resurrection Egg kit
One of my favorite ways to share the Easter story with my girls is through a set of Family Life Resurrection Eggs that my mom gave us when our oldest was just a toddler.
