  1. We had pew cards for the new translation, but I don’t know what happened to mine. No matter: I just made my own on my lap top, which I can also use on Christmas Eve in the gym–they don’t have the pew cards there. Now I just have to stop being cocky and USE them for all the parts that I’ve memorized over the decades that have changed! lol

  2. Jared, this is a great list. Thanks!

  3. Another great book is “The Mass”, by Susan Bateman and Catholic catechist and author Leonie Caldecott: http://www.amazon.com/Mass-Illustrated-Children-Susan-Bateman/dp/0955538017/

    Is there a beautiful video showing the beauty of the Mass the gathering of many . Fr Barron does a great job but I would like to know if there is something similar for 2nd graders.

    Dear Jared,
    Do you have any lessons/ teaching resources/activities to teach young people about the universality of our Church? A way to introduce the 21 other Eastern Catholic rites and liturgy to show how our faith is celebrated in many different parts of the world?

    Thank you!

  6. Dear Jared,
    May the Good Lord Bless You always in your postulate work .
    To God Be The Glory!!!!!
