Work on Stations of the Cross book. Please do Station 9 – Jesus Falls a third time

Look at Jesus now. He is walking slower and slower. The soldiers wish He would hurry. They are afraid all the excited people watching Jesus and yelling at Him may cause a riot. Jesus is packed in so close He can hardly breathe. He takes several more steps and then falls down in the dirty street for the third time.

Step up close to Jesus. He is flat on the ground. It is very hard for Jesus to move, but He gets to His knees and pushes Himself up again. He knows He has to go on. Jesus does not like all this pain – He would like to be rid of it. But He can’t stop now if He wants to do what will help us. And He wants to. He started this way of the cross for God and for us, and He wants to finish it. Whisper in your heart, “Jesus, You are a hero!”

Dear Jesus…if I am slow and people rush me, help me not to get mad…and help me to be kind to everybody because every one of us needs help sometimes.

Under the “Helpful Links” section of my Blog page I have posted some fun learning links for your child.


I am available for email communication ANYTIME! I will miss seeing your child each day and pray this distance learning will end soon. In the meantime, feel free to have your child email me too if they want to chat.


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

Knock, Knock

Who’s There?


Irish Who?

Irish you a Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

A Prayer for Peace of Mind

Fortify me with the grace of

Your Holy Spirit and give

Your peace to my soul that I

may be free from all needless anxiety,

solicitude and worry.

Help me to desire always that

which is pleasing and

acceptable to You so that

Your will may be my will.

-St Frances Xavier Cabrini
