Your duty is to sanctify yourself. Yes, even you. Who thinks that this task is only for priests and religious? To everyone, without exception, our Lord said: Be ye perfect, as my heavenly Father is perfect. St. Josemaria

We 3 Kings..

Tonight is the Eve of the 3 Kings... This is where we give or lets say the 3 Kings bring our children their big gifts. They write letters to the kings and we get a balloon , tie it and up it goes to Heaven.

Next they place their shoes by the door and off to bed to await. .

Bright and early they will be up to see what the Kings have brought them. Each gets 3 gifts to represent what the 3 kings has brought baby Jesus.

One can have a three Kings cake and inside is hidden some type of silver coin or any thing that will not melt . Who ever finds this hidden item will be king or queen for the day!
There are some great books and prayers to celebrate this shinning star of a night!

O God, Who on this daythrough the guidance of a stardidst manifest

Thine Only-Begotten Son to the Gentiles;

mercifully grantthat we who know

Thee now by faith,may one day be broughtto the contemplation of the beauty of Thy majesty.

Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.
