More often than not, my daughter and I now have to attend a Saturday evening mass instead of Sunday morning (except we got to mass this morning and oddly enough I noticed the difference between Saturday evening and Sunday morning.) My reason for starting a thread is, when we don't go to mass on Sunday's I don't want my daughter (or myself) to think it's just another day just because we'd gone to church the previous evening.
So I had been going around the internet, collecting things from various Sunday schools (Catholic) so that she could have an at home Sunday school for 30 minutes to an hour on Sundays (depends on her mood/attention spand.) We use the Sunday Missal for Young Catholics for her Gospel readings. That all is usually is followed by a VeggieTale movie (or one of the cartoons from EWTN) or story . I've tried getting her to say the rosary but she's not content to sit through all the decades, muchless 10 Hail Marys (I have to admit, that makes me just a little sad.)
Our Sunday might also include a nap and well playing obviously. Does this sound adequate, in keeping the Lords day? It's one of the many things I've found myself worrying about since returning to the church. Am I doing enough or NOT enough on Sundays? Should I really be picking up those toys and dishes? :p
Yep I'm one of those professional stay at home worry worts. :rolleyes:
Any ideas would be appreciated.
Any suggestions? Leave it well enough alone?
