Four quick and crafty ways to celebrate Thanksgiving with Catholic kids - Teaching Catholic Kids

Not up to any craftiness? Ask everyone (children and adult) to think about this last year, grab a piece of paper, and write or draw a “top 10” list (adjust number as needed) of what they’re grateful for and want to thank God for. Younger kids can *draw* things they’re thankful for and then have an older person write down the words for them. Consider reading each other’s lists around the table at a shared meal. Ask everyone to *sign & date* their list so you’ll have a sort of “time capsule” of thoughts from a specific point in time—quirky spelling and a person’s own handwriting make it a very special, tangible memory piece/keepsake to keep each year.

Family members in other states can still get in on the action by mailing or texting a picture of their own “Thankful List” to share (make sure to send them pictures of the lists other people brought to the table).

This is a delightful time of year to encourage thankfulness, the in between season between the feasts of All Saints' Day and Souls' Day and Advent. For those of us in the Midwest, a time for wrapping up fall gardening projects and hunkering down in the rain and/or snow. What better time to get out t...

Why (and 4 Ways How) to do an easy Advent Jesse Tree - Holy Heroes

Advent begins Sunday, November 28th, this year, so now may be the time to decide whether there's anything you'll need shipping time or supplies for. You can pick up an Advent Wreath from our Bookstore. What other tradition might be a good addition to your home this year? Reading Bible stories with your children during Advent that show how Salvation History progresses from Creation to the cradle in Bethlehem is one idea to consider.

Also see their article called "Where does the Jesse Tree come from?"

https://blog.holyheroes.com/this-advent-why-and-how-to-do-the-jesse-tree-the-easy-way/

Here are three easy tips for why (and how) the Jesse Tree should be a part of your family's Advent celebration!

“I am short-tempered, vehement, nervous and passionate but still I love you [God]!
I am disobedient, stubborn and defiant yet I love you!
I am restless, hasty and confused but I love you!
I am dark, envious and making comparison but I love you!”

Do you think you could never be a saint? Or have you thought saints seem rather dull and all the same? The more we learn about their lives, the more we’ll find ourselves surprised and inspired.

For example, meet Bl. Sara Salkahazi, “a chain-smoking journalist who became a misfit Sister, a N**i-defying rescuer of Jews, and a martyr.”

“Born to an upper-class Hungarian family, Bl. Sara was something of a wild thing, a strong-willed tomboy who trained as a teacher but later left the classroom out of a desire to be more united to the working poor.”

After making her vows she “became a powerful worker in the vineyard, publishing a Catholic women's periodical, establishing a working-class women's college, and running a Catholic bookstore in addition to all her charitable works. She changed her name to the more Hungarian-sounding Salkahazi to needle the N***s, and began to work to hide Jews and smuggle them to safety. She's credited with single-handedly saving at least 100 Jewish lives during WWII and was declared Righteous Among the Nations for her work.”

“In 1944, Bl. Sara was returning to the home where she was hiding Jews and saw N**i soldiers. Rather than save herself, she chose to die with those she loved. She approached, was arrested, stripped, and shot on the banks of the Danube, a misfit, a martyr, and a Saint. (And a real kindred spirit!)”

Meet Bl. Sara Salkahazi, a chain-smoking journalist who became a misfit Sister, a N**i-defying rescuer of Jews, and a martyr.

Born to an upper-class Hungarian family, Bl. Sara was something of a wild thing, a strong-willed tomboy who trained as a teacher but later left the classroom out of a desire to be more united to the working poor.

When Bl. Sara met the Sisters of Social Service, she was an agnostic socialist journalist but was overcome by a sense of call. It was through this call to religious life that she met Jesus, but when she applied to the order she was rejected because she was a chain-smoker. It took her a year to kick the habit, after which she was accepted into the order.

Still, she didn't quite fit. She was too loud, too big, too much. The Sisters thought she was trying to draw attention to herself when she was just trying to be who God made her to be. She wasn't permitted to make vows with the rest of her group and was even told not to wear the habit for a year, the Sisters not wanting to be associated with this problem-like-Maria. Around this time, Sr. Sara wrote this:

I am short-tempered, vehement, nervous and passionate but still I love you!
I am disobedient, stubborn and defiant yet I love you!
I am restless, hasty and confused but I love you!
I am dark, envious and making comparison but I love you!

Sr. Sara persisted. Ultimately, she was permitted to make vows and became a powerful worker in the vineyard, publishing a Catholic women's periodical, establishing a working-class women's college, and running a Catholic bookstore in addition to all her charitable works. She changed her name to the more Hungarian-sounding Salkahazi to needle the N***s, and began to work to hide Jews and smuggle them to safety. She's credited with single-handedly saving at least 100 Jewish lives during WWII and was declared Righteous Among the Nations for her work.

In 1944, Bl. Sara was returning to the home where she was hiding Jews and saw N**i soldiers. Rather than save herself, she chose to die with those she loved. She approached, was arrested, stripped, and shot on the banks of the Danube, a misfit, a martyr, and a Saint. (And a real kindred spirit!)

Happy Veterans Day!
With respect, honor and gratitude; Happy Veteran’s Day to all.
Thank to our veterans for all the sacrifices you have made for our freedom and for the continued dedication and service to our nation.

A Prayer for Veterans Day
Lord God, Almighty Father, creator of mankind and author of peace, as we are ever mindful of the cost paid for the liberty we possess, we ask you to bless the members of our armed forces. Give them courage, hope and strength. May they ever experience your firm support, gentle love and compassionate healing. Be their power and protector, leading them from darkness to light. To you be all glory, honor and praise, now and forever. Amen. (United States Conference of Catholic Bishops)

I went to 5:00 p.m. Mass at St. Joseph's Sunday. It was awesome. There was holy water in the founts at the door, all the ropes, soaps, disinfectant wipes, etc. had been removed. There is no longer a mask requirement. They used the communion rail for the first time in forever, and at the end of the Mass father called up all the children to receive a gift of a small children's prayer book. It could not have been a more splendid spiritual experience. The children then knelt quietly at the communion rail with father and the whole congregation prayed with them. We often teach by example. What a Blessing it was to witness our priest teaching the little children of all ages by his example.
