    Lent is a season of prayer and fasting before Easter. The season lasts 46 days and during this time, Catholics attend Mass and Reconciliation, make personal sacrifices, and perform additional acts of service and devotion. Lent ends with Easter Sunday, which marks the resurrection of the Lord.   For our family, we do celebrate birthdays with cake and treats, even if they fall during Lent. Just like specific religious orders celebrate particular days as special feasts for their order, we treat birthdays, name days, or baptism days as special family feast days even if they fall during Lent.

      Next, if you slip up, don’t quit. If you just can’t resist that slice of cake or forget to say that prayer–don’t let it ruin Lent for you. Use it as yet another opportunity to turn your heart toward God again. And again. And again. Lent is 40 days for a reason. God knows how slow, obstinate, and hard-headed we are. (Or is that just me??). And I gave thought to how our family would celebrate, which led me to think about how you might like to celebrate with your family. I suspect that, for both of us, a good celebration begins with good books, and with that in mind, I compiled a short list of books for Lent that our family has loved from year to year.

      Lent is the season when God calls his people to return to him with their whole heart. God says that when we return to him, we will find him gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and rich in kindness. During the 40 days of Lent, we reflect on how we can more fully turn our lives over to God so that we can celebrate Easter with joyful hearts. Ready to celebrate this special liturgical season with your family? Take a look at some of our favorite Catholic picture books for Lent and Easter. Catholic Picture Books for Lent. Little Rose of Sharon: A Story of Self Sacrifice. The Tale of Three Trees: A Traditional Folktale.
