Lent Day 17

Fast: As you go about your daily round today,remember that you are expecting someone very important for dinner tonight. Together with your children, work towards your husband’s homecoming as if you were expecting to welcome a king back to his castle.

Pray: “Love consumes us only in the measure of our self-surrender.” — St. Therese

Give: “You can do nothing with children unless you win their confidence and love by bringing them into touch with oneself, by breaking through all the hindrances that keep them at a distance. We must accommodate ourselves to their tastes, we must make ourselves like them.” — St. John Bosco
Do something they want you to do with them today.
