Looking for a way to deepen your child’s experience this Paschal season? Pick up a copy of the recently released Stations of the Cross for Kids, a book offering short but meaningful meditations on each of the 14 Stations. Written by the beloved Catholic author Regina Doman, whose work includes the widely read children’s book Angel in the Waters, the guide will certainly be enjoyed by readers of every age.
“How do we pick up our cross and follow him?” the introduction asks, making what’s going on in the church service relevant to daily life. The answer is simple but profound, applicable to children (and their parents): “By putting up with … sickness, hardship, pain, or even boredom. When we do this patiently and cheerfully, we are following him.”
