Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows

Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows

An Activity for Children

by Catholic All Year

SUPPLIES: sour candies, seven for each child + a Bible and/or CAY Prayer Companion
TO DO: Read the name of the sorrow and hand each child a sour candy. Read the associated Bible verse while the child eats the candy. Bonus points if he eats it without making a sour face, reminiscing on Our Lady’s ability to ‘hold this in her heart’!
