Mass Mysteries for the Littlest of the Littles
Jesus is called the Bread of Life. If we have Him in our lives, we might be hungry for food, but we won't be hungry for God.
Then the Lord said to Moses, “Behold, I am about to rain bread from heaven for you, and the people shall go out and gather a day's portion every day, that I may test them, whether they will walk in my law or not.
What we have heard and know,
and what our fathers have declared to us,
We will declare to the generation to come
the glorious deeds of the LORD and his strength
and the wonders that he wrought.
He commanded the skies above
and opened the doors of heaven;
he rained manna upon them for food
and gave them heavenly bread.
Man ate the bread of angels,
food he sent them in abundance.
And he brought them to his holy land,
to the mountains his right hand had won.
Last week, I asked my kids to try to find the connection with the Psalm, but I forgot to follow up. So, we'll play that game again this week, and hopefully they will listen closely enough to hear about about the manna and God's provision.
Jake and Nick each have a set of imaginary cheetah cubs that they play with and discuss often. This week, while driving, they tried to irritate each other by stealing cheetah cubs and eating them! We might have to discuss that this it NOT the new self that God wants us to have. Shameless plug--if you want to hear more about the Cheetah cubs, like Catholic Kids Bulletin on Facebook!
Saint of the Week: Saint Clare
The story on the bulletin for this week explains why Saint Clare is the patron saint of TV. I love this story, largely because it shocks the kids that there is a saint for the TV! Catholic Online explains another miraculous episode in Saint Clare's life if you want to click on over and check that out.
Speaking of Saints...in the Saint Story about Saint John Bosco, the kids can read more about the meaning behind the Miracle of the Loaves and Fishes.
