In the first issue of the Proskomen! newsletter, I had put a plug in for Journaling Throughout the Liturgical Year, which is described by the publisher as a creative and hands-on approach to studying, commemorating, and celebrating Pascha, the Twelve Great Feasts of the Orthodox Christian Liturgical Year, and the inspiring lives of a selection of twelve saints of the church.” This past week, we had our first, hands-on experience completing the project for the first Great Feast of the liturgical year, the Nativity of the Mother of God.

The girls enjoyed coloring the festal icon while I read about the feast from The Incarnate God, which described the icon’s rich symbolism. We joyfully sang together You nativity O Mother of God . . . while the girls completed their cut & paste projects. The final product is a beautiful keepsake that the girls will cherish for years to come. Hannah was so excited about it that she took hers to Vespers to show the Fathers. Rachel plans to take hers after she completes the second entry, Exaltation of the Holy Cross.

Journaling Throughout the Liturgical Year is a wonderful way to prepare the girls to celebrate the feast.
