DIRECTIONS

It helps for children (and adults) to be able to mark and visibly follow the progress during Lent. An easy way to keep track is to make a Star Chart. Each person needs four categories or lines, and then 40 squares for each penitential day in Lent (Sundays aren't included) for each category.

Prayer and Spiritual Reading

Almsgiving and Good Works

Mortifications (or Sacrifices) and Self Denial

Penance (this is the area or areas of special practice or mortification that is done throughout Lent).

Teachers' stores have charts that could be easily adapted for this. Obtain stickers or stars in four different colors. At the end of the day, review the actions of the day, and place a star in each category that has been fulfilled that day.
