St. John of the Ladder - 4th Sunday of the Great Lent
Last Sunday, we celebrated St. John of the Ladder on the 4th Sunday of the Great Lent. Our Church School children have been encouraged to be on this lenten journey together and regularly as we have talked about the special meaning of each week and taken home a special project to remind us of what we have learned.
St. John of the Ladder was one of the holiest men of our Church. He gives us words of wisdom on how to live the right way and how to fight evil temptations. His spiritual exericise called "The Ladder of Divine Ascent" gives direction to make the right choices and each right direction is like rising on a step ladder towards the Kingdom of Heaven.
The children made magnets with the icon of Christ, and every time they look at this icon it will remind them that they need to do the right choices to be closer to God such as go to church regularly, say my prayers daily, partake in Holy Communion, fast, be kind, help others in need, etc.
