Empty manger idea with kids- The idea is that when acts of service, sacrifice, or kindness are done in honor of Baby Jesus as a birthday present, the child receives a piece of straw to put into the manger. Then, on Christmas morning, “Baby Jesus” is placed in the manger. Encourage your children to make Jesus’ bed as “comfortable” as possible through their good deeds. In the process, explain Christ’s incomparable self-gift at Christmas and Easter that enables us to be part of God’s family.

Quote from Sister Lucia - “Putting up with any sacrifices that are asked of us in our day-to-day lives becomes a slow martyrdom which purifies us and raises us up to the level of the supernatural, through the encounter of our soul with God, in the atmosphere of the presence of the Most Holy Trinity within us. We have here an incomparable spiritual richness!” (Sister Lucia of Jesus and of the Immaculate Heart)
The devil is waiting like a roaring lion in whom he can devour !! We must all put on the full armor of God !! and when we do fail be ready to confess and forsake our sin claiming the righteousness of Christ ! Our redeemer, our ultimate sacrifice, our teacher, our master and our Lord !
Make Your Own Sacrifice Beads // This inspiration comes from St. Therese she used beads on a string as a child to count the acts of love she did for God. When your child makes a sacrifice or good deed slide a bead down the string and it stays put.
