We have completed Chapter 12: Jesus Revealed the Kingdom of God John the Baptist prepared the way for the coming of Jesus. In this chapter the children learn that Jesus was baptized by John and that he was tempted by Satan, who wished to see him reject his Father’s plan. As the children hear how Jesus overcame the temptations of the devil, they come to realize that God allows them to be tempted but always gives them the grace necessary to resist the temptation. They understand that Jesus drove out evil spirits and worked other miracles to show that God’s kingdom triumphs over all. They pray for the reign of God in their own hearts and in the hearts of all people. The children learn the meaning of Jesus’ parables about the Kingdom of God and begin to appreciate that kingdom as a priceless pearl. They are encouraged to imitate the saints by using their gifts to honor God and help others, thereby spreading the Kingdom of God. Each Thursday, we will visit Adorations during Lent. This week we prayed 2 decades of the Rosary reflecting on the Sorrowful Mysteries.

THE EIGHT BEATITUDES OF JESUS

"Blessed are the poor in spirit,

for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are they who mourn,

for they shall be comforted.

Blessed are the meek,

for they shall inherit the earth.

Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness,

for they shall be satisfied.

Blessed are the merciful,

for they shall obtain mercy.

Blessed are the pure of heart,

for they shall see God.

Blessed are the peacemakers,

for they shall be called children of God.

Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness,

for theirs is the kingdom of heaven."

Gospel of St. Matthew 5:3-10

We also looked for the Scripture passage: Love is patient, love is kind… (1 Corinthians 13:4-8). On classroom Religion Bulletin Board we had this scripture posted, so we looked up the way the bible writes it. The children are really getting good at finding the scripture in the bible.

Adorations

What is Adoration?

Eucharistic Adoration is when we spend time in prayer with Jesus in the form of the

Blessed Sacrament. You can pray in any Catholic Church or Chapel for a short

amount of time or a long amount of time. Jesus could be in a Tabernacle or a

Monstrance while we are praying.

What do you do during Adoration?

* Talk to Jesus in your heart about how you love Him, what you are sorry for, ways you want to thank Him, and for

things you and other people need

* Sit quietly and look at Jesus, listening to Him

*Pray a Rosary or the Chaplet of Divine Mercy

* Read a story from the Bible or the life of a Saint

*Write or draw a prayer to Jesus

* Say prayers that you have memorized, like the Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be, etc.

* Sing a song to Jesus

* Read a Bible story

*Listen to a priest teach or lead the group in prayer

Do we sit? Stand? Kneel?

* We always kneel during Exposition and Benediction.

Kneeling a way to show honor and devotion to Jesus as King of the Universe.

*We stand while we sing Holy God We Praise Thy Name at the end of a Holy Hour.

* If you leave the spot you are sitting during Adoration, you should genuflect on two knees and bow your head

instead of genuflecting on your right knee like normal.

* During the Holy Hour, kneeling is always appropriate, but it is also ok to sit while you are praying.

St. Michael Church has Adorations every Thursday, from 8:30 am to 8:30 pm in the lower chapel.
