Sunday's Gospel was a lesson in prayer. After discussing how and when to pray with the children at Children's Liturgy, we still had time to talk some more. The homily ran a bit longer than usual. So, I offered the following idea to the children. Pray with ACTS.
A-Adoration, tell God how much you adore Him and love Him
C- Contrition, tell God you are sorry for everything you did wrong today
T- Thanksgiving, tell God thank you for all that you have in your life
S-Supplication- ask God for what you need
They loved it, even if it took some time explaining what all those big words meant. We'll see how it worked for them this week.
