A word from Pope Francis –
“To follow Jesus means to share his merciful love for every human being.”
In this Sunday’s Gospel, Jesus uses the image of the grain of wheat, which dies to produce a rich crop, to show us that his death was necessary if many were to receive eternal life.
Through this Gospel Jesus is also encouraging his disciples to follow him – to give him first place in their lives. This message is for each one of us too. Jesus wants us to make following him our most important priority.
Choosing to follow Jesus is not always easy; it demands commitment. But it helps our families to keep growing in love and lead us to happiness in this life, and in the life to come.
Enjoy a very spiritual time together, hearing your child’s thoughts about the Sunday Gospel and the Wednesday Word.
