new traditions

Over Holy Week we have been to church lots but we have also been following a home liturgy we found in a book called Eggs & Ashes, a lent and Easter resource book.

The liturgies are very simple.  Beginning on Palm Sunday with 6 lit candles and extinguishing one each day, we read a passage from the Passion story and reflect on an object that relates to the story, for example for the story of Mary of Bethany anointing Jesus we had a bottle of perfume.

It has been great for us to be able to involve the children and give them an understanding of Easter.  They have been fascinated and have asked for the Jesus story.  I think we have created a new family tradition.
