This week's Gospel challenges us to think about what we give to GOD.
Where do we place our focus and how do we see ourselves?
Prayer for the week:
Thank you for all the many blessings in our lives. Thank you for your patience with each of us as sometimes our lives get filled with distractions. Help us with your amazing grace to keep our eyes on you and may our very lives always reflect the light of Christ. We are are all made in your image, help us to recognize the divinity in each human you have created. Help us to love radically. Increase in us so that we may decrease.
For Children: This week's Gospel helps us think about how important it is to keep God in the center of our lives and how we were made in His image.
This next song..... I dare you to make up your own dance to the Lord and celebrate being made in his image!
For Youth: Everyone needs reminders!
One of my favorite songs that has been made popular in the secular world has such a deep meaning. It is another reminder of our identity as a CHILD of GOD made in his image. Do not listen to the messages out there or in your own head that tell you anything different!
Many of you are in Confirmation and may be looking for Saints to choose for your Saint name. Did you ever wonder why we need to learn about these amazing people? One reason is they are role models. They are role models of faith and they lived real lives in this world. We can learn from their lives how to live a holy life despite the challenges and distractions. We are all called to be saints. We all have a part to play. A holy challenge would be to pick one from the video below to learn more about!
