Living Liturgically

Ways to Cultivate the Faith At Home

We all love holidays like Christmas and Fourth of July; we also enjoy national days such as National Donut Day and National Fly a Kite Day. We, as Catholics, are blessed to have a year brimming with holy days and feasts days that we have the opportunity to celebrate with special meals or activities. This is not an exhaustive list; see below for some suggestions on how to celebrate our Christian year! 

"The Christian home is the place where children receive the first proclamation of the faith. For this reason the family home is rightly called “the domestic church,” a community of grace and prayer, a school of human virtues and of Christian charity" (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1666).

March 3: St. Katherine Drexel

  • Pray for the healing of all racial injustice.

  • Since St. Katherine helped fund St. Mary Catholic Church in Vicksburg, pray for the flourishing of that parish.

  • Pray for Catholic schools, especially the Vicksburg Catholic School System. 

March 17: St. Patrick

  • Pray for the Church in Ireland. 

  • Since St. Patrick was a missionary, talk with a friend, co-worker, etc. about the beauty of the Gospel. 

  • Pray the St. Patrick’s Breastplate Prayer. 

March 18: St. Cyril of Jerusalem

  • Read this short reflection on the life of St. Cyril. 

  • Since St. Cyril taught catechumens, pray for those who are now being taught the faith (youth, RCIA, etc.). 

March 19: St. Joseph

  • Pray for all fathers. 

  • Ask the Prince and Patron of the Universal Church to intercede for the worldwide family of faith. 

  • Read this short reflection on the life of St. Joseph. 

March 25: The Annunciation of The Lord

  • Read the account of The Annunciation: (Luke 1:26-38). 

  • Pray the Rosary. 

  • Just as Mary gave her “yes” to God, desiring that His will would be done above her own, simply pray: “God, not my will but yours be done.”
