About this item
These coloring pages will entertain and enlighten your children through the two and a half weeks of Septuagesima as they prepare for Lent. It will then take them into the desert with Our Lord for the forty days of Lent, culminating in Holy Week, and then bursting forth into Easter, with Our Lord revealing Himself risen, Conqueror of death for all those who have loved Him.
Each page includes stunning classical artwork and beautiful, detailed images of the Holy Family, saints, and families, especially children.
This coloring book is a superb supplement to the full-color liturgical-calendar poster series found here.
It is an essential resource for helping parishes, classes, and families to visualize and assimilate the true meaning of the Church’s seasons and feasts. These rich, ornate illustrations show the many ways in which “forty” is used to signify endurance and transformation: the forty-day deluge, forty years of wandering in the desert, and forty days to the mountain with Moses and Elijah. The Church presents to us an endless cascade of highlights to meditate upon, and this coloring book will bring them to your family’s attention one at a time, each day of the year.
This glorious book breaks open the mysteries of the ancient Roman liturgy of the Church. Families will learn about traditional customs for the feasts by celebrating ember days, rogation days, feria days (weekdays), and octaves.
