Prayer Space 

Create a prayer space in your home with symbols of Holy Week. This can include: a palm branch, a crucifix, a Bible, a cup and plate, a stone, and any pictures of loved ones.

Pray St Francis' prayer before a crucifix:

Most High, glorious God,
enlighten the darkness of my heart and give me
true faith, certain hope, and perfect charity, sense and knowledge, Lord, that I may carry out Your holy and true command. 

Amen.

Take time as a family and pray the Stations of the Cross. You can utilize the video version below. A good time to pray it would be on Good Friday, but you can pray it any time. 

Join St Teresa digitally for our livestreams of the Triduum and Easter.
