FIVE WAYS TO PRACTICE YOUR FAITH WHILE ON VACATION
(Catholic Digest, June/July/August, page 21)
5. PRAY - You can pray wherever you are, no
matter how far from home. Try to begin and end each day with a family prayer, thanking God for the blessings of your trip and for safe traveling. Go to Catholic.org and search “travel prayers.”
