Sacramentals – Things that draw our minds and hearts to the Lord. To help us observe Lent well, we here at school wear crucifixes daily. The children typically leave them on their desks when they head home at the end of the day, lest they be forgotten the next morning at home. They are little simple crucifixes, but they remind us of Jesus, and they get us used to wearing such sacramentals. Have you considered wearing something similar during Lent? A friend of mine teaches in the public school system but always wears a crucifix or Marian symbol.
