In Sunday’s gospel, Jesus teaches us how to tell the difference between good and evil, between what comes from God and what doesn’t. We can tell if something is good or bad for us (discern) by looking at the fruits, and then we can choose what to do next. For example, a good movie or book is one that inspires us to act better, feel closer to God, or reminds us something beautiful about life.
Next Wednesday the 6th of March, the Year Five class will lead the Ash Wednesday Mass. The Mass will begin at 9am and all families and friends are invited to attend.
Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent, a season that celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ. At Mass, the children will have a cross drawn on their forehead using ashes. The ashes are a symbol of repentance for the things they have done wrong and it shows their commitment to God and Jesus Christ.
