This evening, we had a chance to practice our physical, mental and spiritual endurance. Before we began, Jessica shared a little about St. Sebastian, the patron saint of athletes. Then we took a walk around the parking lot praying the rosary. I think Jessica certainly had to show some physical endurance as she attempted to lead the rosary walking backwards.
Afterwards, we let the girls run around for a bit and then headed back inside to do some physical endurance. Jessica had the girls do some physical activities such as sit ups and bracing themselves against the wall and holding themselves up. They were having a good time trying the activities and even some of the moms joined in.
After getting all riled up and excited, we had to practice some mental and spiritual endurance as we spent two minutes meditating and looking at a picture of Mary. It was hard to stay focused after getting all excited.
It was a good meeting to be able to put into practice some of what we learned at our next meeting. Also helped us to be able to complete another one of the activities in the book.
