Let me set the scene. Imagine one mom in her somewhat messy "cleaning" clothes, several big children trying to be attentive, a six year old intent on just hugging mom, a four year old full of energy and an eighteen month old running around in her onesie. Imagine small homemade stations of the cross set up throughout the first floor and a simple children's prayer book. Imagine by the tenth station all the children genuflecting and reflecting on God's mercy and thanking Him for sending His Son to die for their sins. Imagine a mom truly grateful for the all the blessings in her life, even more mindful of what the Cross purchased for her.
