It's still a work in progress (as are we) but this is a new version of an old poster I made for the older children when they were about BigBoy's age to illustrate to them the three divisions of the Church.
We chose our favorite saints, name saints and confirmation saints to represent the whole Church Triumphant. We also included these two littlest saints so dear to our hearts who we like to imagine as saintly playmates.
Next, we added pictures of our loved ones who have passed away to represent the Church Penitent or the Church Expectant. I chose "Expectant" over "Penitent" only because it sounded a little confusing to my children who know that we are penitent when we seek the sacrament of Confession.
And last, we chose pictures of our friends and family to represent the Church Militant. Let this be a lesson to you all: be careful what you post on the internet... it just might get turned into a craft! :)
