Cool finds for Candlemas

Here in central Ohio, the temperature has finally gone so far down that the the kids are no longer arguing with me about wearing coats and hats outside.

On February 2, we celebrate the Presentation of the Lord, also known as Candlemas. This is as good a time as any to have pancakes for dinner, and Peanut Butter & Grace has a recipe for both the pancakes (yum!) and the discussion that goes along with this feast day.

My cool find of the week: Catholic Brain. (With a name like that, what’s not to love?) It’s full of resources for teaching Catholic kids, whether you’re an educator by profession or by vocation. 😉 If you’re not sure, try it for 14 days and see what you think.

With Lent just over a month away, it’s a good time to think ahead and maybe do some planning.

One thing I always intend to get better at is Confession. Lent’s a great time to address this, and one tool I am going to try to use this year with my kids is this daily examen. I love that there’s a PDF available of it.

A dose of just plain fun: Which American saint are you?
