Ever heard this (or something sorta like it)?:

"How can the Church engage teens in the beauty and depth of the Mass with competition like social media and smartphones?"

Ascension Press responds to that question in their new program for teens called "Altaration: The Mystery of the Mass Revealed."

Check out this trailer to get a feel for the program. Really good stuff here. Looking forward to witnessing the many fruits this program is sure to bear.

Here's a resource to help a weary homeschooler or two get the energy to keep on keepin' on until the holidays arrive! | Teaching from Rest: A deal for you | The Practicing Catholic http://ow.ly/DLzYe
Here's a special discount on "Teaching from Rest," a resource that has greatly helped me foster holy leisure within my homeschooling routines.
