Hello families! We had a wonderful time at our “Jesus’ Agape Love” themed Escape Room. I’m not sure who had more fun, the parents or the students! Some early finishers won gift cards from Subway and Chick filet! Everyone went home with treats and a “key to the Kingdom”! If you missed the fun, we will be planning another one before the end of our year together.
Today’s Gospel says that Jesus fasted (didn’t eat) for forty days and then He was tempted by the devil to use His power to turn stones into bread. Jesus said no! Do you think it was hard for Jesus to stand up to the devil? Have you ever been tempted to do something that you shouldn’t do and, like Jesus, had the courage and strength to say no? Share about this experience.
Learn the Act of Contrition. Explain to children that, at times, we all give in to the temptation to sin. We say the Act of Contrition to show sorrow for our sins (CCC 1451) when we celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
My God, I am sorry for my sins with all my heart. In choosing to do wrong and failing to do good, I have sinned against you whom I should love above all things. I firmly intend, with your help, to do penance, to sin no more, and to avoid whatever leads me to sin. Our Savior Jesus Christ suffered and died for us. In his name, my God, have mercy.
