What time did you attend Mass?
Who was the priest that said Mass?
Our first reading at Mass today is from the prophet Isaiah. As a reminder, prophets are people who lived before Jesus who told others that Jesus was coming. God tells Isaiah these words: “see, I am doing something new!” God gives us such a gift when He sends Jesus to walk among us on earth. Nothing has ever happened like this before, so God gives us something new when He sends Jesus. What is something new you have tried recently? How did it make you feel?
Between the first and second readings, we sing a psalm, which is a prayer in the form of a song. Today’s psalm reads, “The Lord has done great things for us; we are filled with joy.” God created us out of nothing because He loves us, and we know every good thing in life comes from Him. We use the psalms and other songs to give God praise and show Him our joy. How can you show God you are filled with joy?
In our Gospel reading today, we hear the story of a woman caught in adultery. Because she has broken the rules, many people want to kill her by throwing stones at her. But Jesus shows love and kindness to the woman, and tells the people that whoever has never broken the rules in their life can throw the first stone at her. Every single person leaves the woman alone because they know they also have sinned. God forgives us every time we sin. Write a short prayer asking God to forgive you for the times you have hurt others.
Parent Question of the Week
In our second reading today, Paul writes in his letter to the Philippians a very striking statement: “Brothers and sisters: I consider everything as a loss because of the supreme good of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord.” Paul believes so fully in Jesus and His power to save that he goes so far as to say that everything else in life is nothing to him. What is a time when you have truly known that Jesus is the most important person in your life?
