Work on Stations of the Cross book. Please do Station 11 – Jesus is nailed to the cross

Look at Jesus. He has been laid flat down on the cross. One soldier takes spikes and hammers them through Jesus’ hands. After Jesus’ feet also are nailed, the soldiers fix the cross into a hole so it will stand straight. Everybody stands around and looks at Jesus. The good people feel unhappy because they love Jesus. The people who don’t love Him are unhappy too because they have done something bad. It is a sad, sad day – that first Good Friday.

Step up close to Jesus. He hurts all over. His head aches. He is thirsty. But in His heart He is not sad like the people. He knows that what He chose to do was the right thing. Now He looks down at the men who nailed Him to the cross, and He forgives them. Then He tells Mary to be a mother to all of us and to count us as her children. He keeps thinking of others even when He is dying, Whisper in your heart, “Jesus, I love you.”

Dear Jesus…when somebody hurts me, help me to be forgiving…and help me to live so Mary will be proud to count me as her child.

First graders (and Mrs. Cincilla) just love funny jokes and riddles! Give this one a try:

Question: Why was the Easter egg hiding?

Answer: Because it was a little chicken!

You Do Not Need to Worry

A Message inspired by Matthew 6

You do not need to worry.

Do not be afraid.

Worry will not add

A single second to your day.

The lilies do not worry.

They look up to the sky.

The sparrows do not worry.

They spread their wings and fly.

Sometimes there is sunshine.

Sometimes there is rain.

Be at peace, my little friend.

The sun will rise again.

Like the lilies you will grow.

Like the sparrows, you will soar.

God loves the earth and animals,

And loves you even more!
