Ideas to Help Thwart the Commercialism of St. Valentine's Day

 Resources to focus on Love and Charity

As we draw closer to Valentine's Day, we are bombarded by cocoa delights in the stores, advertisements in the newspaper, and a plethora of goods and services that well, to be quite frank, we don't need. 

As Christians we celebrate Valentine's Day daily as we uphold our Lord's Commandments to love one another, love and practice fidelity to our spouses as well as honour our parents.  There we go, everyone in our life is covered.  If we happen to attend Mass on the 14th of February, we also show Jesus that we love Him too as we should go to Mass to show God we love Him rather than prioritizing to have our own needs met.

We can do a few things to try and make the day seem less commercial for our children and families. 

  • Read 1 Corinthians 13:3-7 in the Bible - the passage on love or charity.  You can find copywork for that Bible passage here.

  • Begin Our Virtue Lesson on Love.  This popular month long lesson for learners K-6 is great for February, but it can be done at any time of the year.  If you haven't had a chance to use Our Virtue Lessons, you may want to give it a whirl now.  These lessons incorporate moral development with a Christian focus, and include text lessons, discussion prompts, mini-books, worksheets, copywork, suggestions for reading and go-along printables!!

  • Attend daily Mass on February 14th.
We hope these resources help bring love and joy to your lessons this week.
