I think living liturgically will become much easier when my kids are a tad bit older. Right now is more just practice as they learn very little (of the intended information – they are always learning something!) from the things I have planned so far this year. Don’t get me wrong: I think it is very beneficial that I am doing this. I am learning a lot, I’m creating a habit, and the kids are enjoying and learning in their own, age appropriate ways. So, I want to continue on this path, but I will need some help. I can’t come up with ideas all on my own. That’s why I have found an arsenal of wonderful books that have all of the ideas already laid out for me. One of my faves? Feast! You know Haley, right? Carrots for Michaelmas? Her and her husband created this book out of a true labor of love. Check out her site for more info, but here is a little preview:
Feast! is the book we wish we had when we first started observing the Christian Year. It is 125 pages of real food to celebrate the liturgical year and lives of the saints and reflections on the seasons of the Christian calendar and simple traditions. Feast! features 23 simple real food recipes for the liturgical seasons of Advent, Christmas, Epiphany, Lent, and Easter, and well-known saints’ days like St. George’s Day, St. Rose of Lima’s Day, and St. Thomas Aquinas’ Day as well as less familiar saints like St. Charles Lwanga and St. Raymond Nonnatus.
