Third Sunday of Easter – Feed My Sheep

Third Sunday of Easter – Feed My Sheep

Alleluia! Christ is risen!

“Do you love me?” Jesus asks. We reply with Peter, “Lord, you know I love you.” Jesus gives us a job to do – feed the sheep. We are addressed in this week’s Gospel as much as Peter is. How do we feed the sheep? What are we to do with this mandate?

Read on and get some insights into how we are shepherds and what we can do to learn how to be a better one!

Christ is risen indeed! Alleluia!

Divine Mercy Sunday – Witness and Bear Fruit

Divine Mercy Sunday – Witness and Bear Fruit

Alleluia! Christ is risen!

And He comes to offer His Divine Mercy!

The work of Jesus, through His Apostles down to us is mercy. The unconditional love He has for each of us is a gift of mercy.

We are not worthy that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ should come to us, to heal and forgive us, yet He does! In His Church, His ministers, His people – you and me.

Learn more about how we can allow Jesus to work His Divine Mercy through us. Read on and be ready to be changed!

Christ is risen indeed! Alleluia!

Easter Sunday – Eyewitness Accounts

Easter Sunday – Eyewitness Accounts

Our life in Christ, through His Resurrection is what we celebrate at Easter. This gift of salvation is something we are commanded to share!

The readings for Easter this year include several eyewitness accounts of what happened that day. The first reading is Peter’s testimony in Acts; the Gospel is Mary Magdalene’s witness to the Apostles; and the Psalmist declares his own witness.

And if the Psalmist is true, then we will declare the gift of salvation because we are excited about it! Our witness to Christ’s work in our lives is part of being a member of Christ’s Church.

When Mary, Peter, John, and all the other disciples shared their eyewitness accounts, they invited their listeners into relationship with Jesus, so everyone who hears has the opportunity to the new life in Christ. It is too good to keep to ourselves…it is too good not to share with others.

Our Discussion section invites us to remember those who witnessed to us, and our activity rises to the occasion!

Palm Sunday of the Passion of The LORD

Palm Sunday of the Passion of The LORD

Palm Sunday Mass is pretty long, just getting out of the gate! The Gospel reading gives all of us an opportunity to participate, and being ready for that is what this week’s TWMWU is all about.

Who are you in this narrative? Who are the people you know? Who do we want to be?

As we enter into Holy Week, kids may be anticipating eggs and candy and a bunny – but making it through the passion-play we all re-enact can be distracting and even boring for the best of us if we aren’t focused. Getting children focused, and helping them understand what is going on as the congregation says “Crucify Him!” is a breeze with the aids and coloring book we have for free download.

And, yes, we encourage these to accompany little ones to Mass!

Not only will you be better prepared for Mass with this week’s Warm-Up, so will children you help, and this will make for a much more profound, meaningful, and convicting Holy Week.

Do we dare something different this year, or are we just glad Lent is over? Your choice is in This Week’s Mass Warm-Up…
