Read Katie’s great post below on Holy week and how to make it an extra special time of growing deeper in your faith. In the comments you can read what I wrote about a couple of our family Holy week traditions.
Also, let us know if you do anything special during Holy week to make it more…HOLY for you or your family?
Katie also mentions there that she watches The Passion of the Christ each year. I have to admit that I don’t look forward to seeing that movie over and over. It’s not easy watching such pain and suffering…and it’s also not easy to wrap my brain around the fact that it was all for you and for me. Yet it is good to be reminded of just that fact, so I’ll usually take the kids to a Good Friday Passion play at church which is more age-appropriate for them. Even that is hard to watch, but necessary lest we forget to live our lives showing Him we’re grateful.
