Jesus says: “As you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me.” Many saints were shaken to the core by this passage from the Bible. On account of it, St. Francis of Assisi changed his whole life. Mother Teresa converted because of this saying… When I reflect that these words come from the mouth of Jesus … then I see that I am called to seek and to love Jesus above all in these little ones, in the least.
Pope Francis, DoCat
The children will learn and reflect on some of the principles of Catholic Social Teaching. They will reflect on the implications of our belief that we are made in the image of God and explore the importance of family and community. The children will explore St. Paul’s image of the Church as the ‘Body of Christ’ and draw out the implications of this image for Christian action in the world, particularly through an exploration of the corporeal works of mercy.
You could help your child by:
- discussing with them the importance of family and family time
- reflecting on the corporeal works of mercy.
