A few families got together for Shrove Tuesday, shared a pancake lunch and made a salt dough crown of thorns in preparation for Lent.
A Salt Dough Crown of Thorns. For each Lenten sacrifice a family member makes, he or she pulls a toothpick out of the crown. This activity makes a great visual reminder of Christ’s suffering: Parents can explain to their children that sin brings additional pain to Jesus’ suffering and good works can comfort Him and show our love for Him.

On Ash Wednesday, you probably noticed we didn’t say the “Gloria” in Mass. We “fast” from that during Lent – except on certain special feast days. In 2013, we will say the “Gloria” on each of the below days EXCEPT ONE. Which of the days below will we NOT say the Gloria? Find the answer in Lenten Adventure.
