Friday

On this very holy day on which Jesus died for us, consider making an offering to give up technology in order to focus on the great love of God for you (except, of course, the technology that will help you participate in the Stations of the Cross, Good Friday service, resources below, etc).

Hopeful waiting--a disposition of heart. Reflect on how you as a family can patiently wait in joyful hope for the Resurrection of Jesus? What would Mary and the disciples have done?
