What parenting tips can be gained from presenting the Ten Commandments? How can the season of Lent, a 40 day journey through the desert with Christ, be an opportunity to grow and renew my vocation as a mother/father? Why did God present the 10 Commandments to Moses in the desert? I heard some people say it’s acceptable by the Church to break Lenten commitments on Feast Days, is that true? What are some ways to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with kids?
The 10 Commandments were not given to be suggestions, they are commands. –Tom
[With our youngest kids] I don’t always take these commands as seriously as I should, KNOWING what happens to that 4 year old when they turn 14! –Kari
Happy St. Patrick’s Day… and Friday in Lent! The Currans explore parenting tips connected to the 10 Commandments. Kari talks about how they celebrate St. Patrick’s Day and Tom presents the 10 Commandments as: given out of love, given as commands (not suggestions), given in the Desert, given to be guardrails for kids, given to trust in God’s promise ”I am with you,” and given to prepare us for the Promise Land.
