Thank you,

Pentecost Marks the End of Easter. Now what do we do? Let St. Anthony and the CCC help.

What do you have planned for your spiritual year?

With the celebration of Pentecost, the Easter season will officially come to a close. We are now reassured of God's love and our forthcoming eternal life illustrated through Christ's resurrection. With Pentecost we recognize our call to become disciples of Christ and display our allegiance and love to God through our actions. The challenge for each one of us will be to remember Easter all year through. Mother church helps us with this task by focusing our spiritual attention on different aspects of our faith. We call this the Dedication of the months.

Here are the areas that Mother Church suggests we should focus on yearly basis by month:

January - The Holy Name of Jesus
February - The Passion
March - St. Joseph
April - The Resurrection
May - The Blessed Virgin
June - The Sacred Heart
July - The Precious Blood
August - The Assumption
September - The Holy Cross
October - The Rosary
November - The Poor Souls (Holy Souls in Purgatory)
December - Advent (The Coming of Christ)
If you need a little reminder of these days, feel free to download our Learning Card on the Dedications of the Month. With two different cards per page, it is paired with the card for the Mysteries of the Rosary.

Although we are given a monthly focus, there are still tons of opportunities throughout the year to focus on different rich aspects of our Faith. We recall different mysteries of the Rosary - The Annunciation, The Assumption, Easter, Christmas and many others. We also recall the wonderful faithful works of the holy saints. One such saint that has a special place in our little homeschool is St. Anthony of Padua. His feast day is June 13th. We have put together a page with fun printable resources to help you celebrate the feast day of this saint with your family or classroom too.

Another way to celebrate your faith daily is through learning and living the CCC (Catechism of the Catholic Church). We can do this very simply by knowing what God expects of us and being willing to do His will. Shell of Thinking Love, No Twaddle blog has created a quick reference sheet to help us all remember and learn the Ten Commandments, the Beatitudes and the Lord's prayer. This sheet can be used in a number of ways. It can be a reference sheet. It can be cut apart and put on flashcards for ordered play or matching play. It could be attached in an F3 folder or used in a unit study for lesson reinforcement. These are just a few ideas.

Find this and other faith builders at Shell's page HERE.

We hope that your spiritual life is somehow enriched and enlivened with the use of our free printables.
