Listening to Jesus

How do you listen to God's beloved Son?

Jesus speaks to us in many ways. For each of the channels of communication listed below, write one way you will "Listen to him" during Lent.

1) The Scriptures

2) Church teaching

3) Sacraments

4) Our families and friends

5) The world around us

6) Events of our own lives

Exercising Trust

The kind of trust Abraham demonstrated in God cannot be developed overnight. It takes a great deal of practice. We start out by exercising trust in small matters and we keep growing toward situations where heroic trust is needed.

Decide how you will exercise trust in situations like the following:

1) When a parent or teacher gives me a difficult assignment, I will exercise trust by ____________

_______________________________________.

2) When a friend promises to return a borrowed item, I will exercise trust by ______________________

_______________________________________.

3) When I am fearful or anxious about something that is beyond my control, I will exercise trust by _____

________________________________________

Starry Sky

In the first reading, God blesses Abraham by promising to make his descendents as countless as the stars of the sky.

Make a bulletin board with descendents of Abraham. Provide stars cut from white paper. Have children draw pictures of their family members and friends on the stars, using a different star for each person. Place these on the bulletin board.

Clothes of Dazzling White

In the gospel, we hear of Jesus’ transfiguration. His clothes become dazzling white. Provide each child with a full length picture of Jesus run on tan or manila paper. Give each child a sheet of white paper. Have them tear small pieces from this paper and glue mosaic-style onto the picture of Jesus to make his clothing “as white as snow.”
