“The signs worked by Jesus attest that the Father has sent him. They invite belief in him. To those who turn to him in faith, he grants what they ask. So miracles strengthen faith in the One who does his Father’s works; they bear witness that he is the Son of God.”

Catechism of the Catholic Church

The children heard some stories from the gospels which tell of Jesus using his God-given power to show his love and compassion. They heard the story of the Calming of the Storm and know that we can ask Jesus to help us when we are afraid.

They learnt that Jesus showed his love for sick people when he cured a man who was paralysed and know that Jesus has great love for people who are sick today. They learnt that Jesus responded to the faith of the blind man with compassion and think of ways that we can trust Jesus in situations of need.
