The Catholic Mother’s Traditional Lenten Journal



The Catholic Mother’s Traditional Lenten Journal


Lent is a remarkable and rewarding season. For a Catholic, it is a time of fasting, prayer, almsgiving, reflection. It is also a personal time of spiritual growth. That personal growth must reach its tentacles out to the family. Mothers, we live out our lives of service and love, and every season becomes an opportunity of teaching and planting seeds of the Faith in the minds and hearts of our children.

I have prepared this Lenten journal to help you to keep on track. It is to assist you in keeping focused on making Lent a special time for your family. We do not have to do great things to influence those little people. No, we must do the small things in a great way with love and consistency. Catholic culture is built on celebrating, in the home, the feasts, the seasons, the saints, the holydays, making them come alive in a beautiful and charming way.

Lent is that special season wherein we teach our children the value of sacrifice and of discipline. This journal will lay out some simple activities in which your children will be doing their sacrifices and will have a tangible means of counting them for Jesus. You, Mom, will have a place to put a check mark if that the activity is remembered and completed for the day.

This journal also includes a place for you to check off whether you are fulfilling your own personal resolutions, your Spiritual Reading, your Family Rosary, etc. It makes it more palpable if you can check it off at the end of the day. There’s just something about putting pen to paper when an accomplishment has been fulfilled! My hope is that this journal may help you stay focused on making this Lent fruitful for your own soul and the souls of those little people entrusted to your care!
