As our prayer table has been a fixture in our home for longer, I have noticed the boys taking more and more ownership of the resources there. Caleb has been copying down the prayers at the end of each of his religion lessons (Faith & Life 2) and posting them around the house, including near the prayer table. He also brought home his outline for Reconciliation and wanted to post that near the table as well.
This week was Aidan's turn to have the RE classroom family activity bag. The activity was focused on learning to pray The Divine Mercy Chaplet and he has carefully laid out the candle, statue, rosary, and pamphlets on the top of the prayer table to use throughout this week. Not only has he taken the initiative to lay all of these materials out, he has been ensuring their use by asking us to pray the chaplet together each day.
