Spiritual Adoption

I originally blogged about Spiritual Adoption here and here.

The prayer written by Venerable Fulton Sheen was the center of those activities, so I had to include it with our Sheen study.

I loved the kids' reaction when I told them that the prayer that they pray everyday as a school for our spiritually adopted baby (dubbed Max in our classroom) was written  by Sheen.  They got one of the bookmarks with the prayer they already know to add to their notebook, and someday soon we will do some journal writing about it.

Click on the image above for a printable of the bookmarks, and follow the links above for other items on teaching about spiritual adoption, including monthly update postcards.
