Work on Stations of the Cross book. Please do Station 14 – Jesus Is Laid in the tomb

Look at how Jesus’ friends have put clean clothes on His body and sprinkled Him with a sweet smelling perfume. Now they are putting His body into a tomb. The tomb is a small cave-like room cut out of a big rock. After they lay Him inside, they leave the tomb and roll a giant stone in front of the doorway. It is so large that it takes several big men to roll it into place. Then they all go home.

Step up close to Jesus. You can’t get very close to Jesus because He is still inside the tomb. It is Saturday, the next day, Pontius Pilate, the bad judge who let Jesus be killed, sends soldiers to guard the tomb so that nobody would steal the body of Jesus. The soldiers sit by the tomb all day and all night. Imagine that you, too, sit there and that you watch and pray and remember the promise of the third day. Whisper in your heart, “Jesus, I’m waiting for You.”

Dear Jesus…teach me how to wait when I can’t have what I want right away…and help me to pray even when You don’t seem very near to me.

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

Question: How can you tell which rabbits are getting old?

Answer: Look for the grey hares!


Lord, Help me to focus on what really matters.

I’m so grateful for another day.

Please help me to keep the spirit of gratitude as I face the ebbs and flows of life;

help me to see the good in the bad and the happy in the sad.

Renew my spirit. In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
