Happy Tuesday! This week's Sunday school class was a lot of fun for the kids. We learned so many things! It was a busy class filled with a variety of activities.
Saint~ Saint Martin of Tours
The children always enjoy this story of a Roman shoulder who showed a poor, old man who doesn't have anything such kindness and love. He's a wonderful example of charity and treating others as you would Jesus.
Charity is loving God with all your heart, mind, and strength, and your neighbor as yourself. We talked about ways that they could practice the virtue of charity. Helping a friend at school, not being a bully at school, helping your mom with dishes, and picking up a pencil or books a student were just a few of the ideas the kids came up with.
Old Testament Lesson~ Cain and Abel
We read the bible story of Cain and Abel. We talkd about how Cain was jealous of Abel. Cain's jealousy is what caused him to kill Abel. We talked about how jealousy is a sin and it hurts God. We talked about times we were jealous and what we should do if we feel jealousy brewing.
We talked about who Mary is and why she is important. We talked about how October is the month of the Holy Rosary. We prayed one decade of the roasary together as a class.
We continued practicing the Sign of the Cross and learning the Glory Be. We started working on the Hail Mary since October is the month of the Holy Rosary.
