In Sunday’s Gospel, Jesus says: “When you give a party, do not ask your friends and rich neighbours, because they will repay you by inviting you in return. No, when you have a party, invite the poor, the crippled and the blind, for they cannot pay you back. Your reward then will be made in heaven.” The theme of this reading is humility. Our culture glorifies the fit, the fast, the strong, the rich, the powerful. Yet in the Kingdom of Heaven, those who are humble are the ones God rewards.
In Year Three we are learning about the Sacrament of Holy Communion to support the Year Fours in the coming week. We have learnt about the two parts of the Mass; the Liturgy of the Word and the Liturgy of the Eucharist. We have just started to investigate the parts of the Church and what makes them special. We can’t wait to create a tour of the Church to learn about the different parts of the sanctuary.
