LESSON 4

Prayer- placing oneself before God via our thoughts, attitudes and actions.  

At the beginning of Lesson 3, it was noted that April 5 has two reference titles: Palm Sunday and Passion Sunday.   The Mass begins with a joyful song of praise… However, the readings that follow- during the Liturgy of the Word recount Jesus’ road to the cross:

  • as foretold in Isaiah 50:4-7;

  • Jesus’ reference to Psalm 22-as he hung on the cross; 

  • St Paul’s rendition of Jesus’ humility and sacrifice;

  • and finally the actual passion narrative in

    • Matthew 26: 14-27,66.  (Refer to reading references posted at the beginning of Lesson 3)

 

This is not easy to read- in so far as what happened to Jesus.   All four Gospels recount the betrayal, the accusations, the condemnation, the torture and crucifixion of Jesus.

This is a perfect time to reflect upon what Jesus endured because of sin and because He loves us so much.  He took upon himself our failures- He endured fear, humiliation, betrayal, denial, rejection, being mocked, excruciating pain.  The God who is in heaven, came to earth- and experienced our humanity then transformed it….God-Jesus made it possible for us to intimately encounter and unite ourselves to Him through the ultimate act of LOVE!

hopefully with your parents- slowly read and meditate upon the stations of the cross.

 

TEXTBOOK pg. 171-176

Read and complete the exercises.

 

Every time we participate in the Mass, we encounter Jesus’ real presence in the Eucharist.  Remember the Eucharistic miracles, that we discussed in class? If not… look up the recent ones in Poland and Argentina.   We also bring to the present, Jesus’ life, death and resurrection- EVERY MASS!

 

On the CTK Parish website- Masses are being posted- both weekdays and Sundays.  The Mass is the greatest of all prayers-
