Repentance and temptation

garden_of_hearts_6_featured

On the fifth Sunday of Great Lent, the Church celebrates St. Mary of Egypt, who holds a special place among the Saints: she is the model of repentance (μετάνοια, a change of mindset) – the central point of Great Lent. dentraki2

We were very inspired by a wonderful Lenten resource, Tending the Garden of our Hearts, a series of daily Lenten meditations for children and their families, from Elissa Bjeletich and Kristina Wenger. Their post on Week 6 of Great Lent deals with the themes of repentance and temptation, and we are sincerely thankful to Elissa and Kristina for allowing us to put together some printables to help with their activities targeting the younger children.

You will find these and more in our webpage for Great Lent week 6.
