My gift for Christmas was this "Way of the Light Wreath." You can use it for Advent, Lent and the Acension. I just love it. We used it for Advent... and then we packed it away... I was a little sad.
It is almost time to take out our Wreath.... March 9th is the day to start counting down to the Resurrection! I grew up in the catholic church.... I always remember my mom talking about Lent but I never understood it.
Lent: the 40 weekdays from Ash Wednesday until Easter.
When we celebrated Advent... the marker we moved was a hand carved donkey with Mary. For Lent we will set out a hand carved Jesus... carrying the cross.
We will read Amom's Adventure as we move Jesus carrying the cross around the wreath... would love to know what you are doing the days leading up to the Resurrection.
May the JOY of the Lord be yours~
