Beauty & Culture
Creation, music and the arts can

or visited an art gallery?

Six questions to ask yourself:

  • What am I GRATEFUL for today?


  • What expectations of normal am I LETTING GO OF today?

  • How am I GETTING OUTSIDE today?

  • How am I MOVING MY BODY today?

  • What BEAUTY am in either creating or cultivating, or inviting in today?

How might your kids or spouse answer these questions?
Most people are use to being busy from the minute they wake up to the minute they go to bed. Even if you don't think you're a routine person, you are!
Covid-19 is forcing us to slow down, but having a structure to our day is very healthy. Creating a schedule can also ensure you are making the most of the time you have. What do you need to make sure to put on your schedule?

1. White Board - Put your daily schedule on it.
Start with your wake up time and end with bed time. Everyone needs breakfast, lunch and dinner, so from there you can add learning activities, family time, screen time, as well as physical and spiritual (prayer) exercises. 

2. Printed Schedule - customize your own schedule here .

Give your kids a chance to weigh in on what they think should be included in the schedule...who knows what they will say? ( And as always, parents always have veto power!

Rooted In Love - watch and listen, how will you make the most of your time??
Be not afraid, stay informed.

Pope Francis’ Prayer to Mary during the Coronavirus Pandemic 
O Mary,
you always shine on our path
as a sign of salvation and of hope.
We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick,
who at the cross took part in Jesus’ pain, keeping your faith firm.
You, Salvation of the Roman People,
know what we need,
and we are sure you will provide
so that, as in Cana of Galilee,
we may return to joy and to feasting
after this time of trial.
Help us, Mother of Divine Love,
to conform to the will of the Father
and to do as we are told by Jesus,
who has taken upon himself our sufferings
and carried our sorrows
to lead us, through the cross,
to the joy of the resurrection. Amen.
Under your protection, we seek refuge, Holy Mother of God. Do not disdain the entreaties of we who are in trial, but deliver us from every danger, O glorious and blessed Virgin.
Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas
