When we do our part, God multiplies it beyond our imagination.
Jesus feeds us from our offerings by taking what is our gift to Him and giving it to others.
This week we explore the multiplying of the loaves and fishes, seeing how it is foretold in the 2 Kings and discussing Paul’s teaching on how to live like Jesus.
Our activity this week is a Lord’s Day Celebration. A perfect way to prepare for Mass, and making mealtime so much more meaningful and drawing the family closer together.
The Lord’s Day Celebration is a great way to add Jesus to your family meal once a week, in preparation for Mass.
This simple celebration brings the family closer to God and each other in a short ritual that gives parents a way to integrate faithful living into a time when all the family is gathered and ready, and provides opportunity for everyone to participate.
Give your family and yourself this gift and watch their and your faith life grow quickly and your relationships get closer.
As a bonus, there’s a quick and easy bread recipe included.

And, or course, He is always preparing us. In the activity, which is a brief prayer, we get that opportunity to really see how He is preparing us.
Which makes the answer to the question a positive, resounding: Yes!
By Order of The King: You need a break!

Why does God use these humble servants as examples, and what about the bad shepherds?
More importantly, why don’t we ever think of ourselves as shepherds of the little flock He has given us?
This week, we get sheepish on you, And give you a great, simple, yet powerful activity to do as The Lord says in his teaching this week: Come away and rest awhile.
Start by taking a three-minute break and reading up on the Mass lesson this week – then drive the flock somewhere. You’ll see…
Mama and Daddy explore the first Fruit of the Spirit that St. Paul mentions in his letter to the Galatians: Love. They explain that Love is a verb that means “sacrifice” and is not an “Ooey-Gooey” feeling, as Dad says. -Nathaniel
