Season of the Church Year: Common Time Lent Season (Liturgical Color: Purple)
Story in Scripture: Luke 2: 41-52
“This is the 2nd Sunday in the Season of Lent. Last week, we learned about the beginning of Jesus’ life, when was born to Mother Mary and Father Joseph. Well… that baby grew up a little and became a boy. When he was about twelve years old, he went with his mother and father and with many other people from their village of Nazareth to the great city of Jerusalem to keep on the of the high holy days. When the celebration was over, the people from Nazareth went out through the great high gate and started on the road toward home. Suddenly, Mary and Joseph discovered that Jesus was not there! They thought he had been playing with the other children from their village as they walked together. They hurried back to the great city of Jerusalem to find him. Mary and Joseph look in the dark and narrow streets… they looked in the marketplace where they had bought their food… They looked where they had spent the night… they looked everywhere!! Finally, they looked in the Temple--- and there he was. He was talking to the rabbis, the priests. When he spoke, they listened, because he knew so much. When they spoke, they listened, because he wanted to know even more. Mary and Joseph then asked Joseph the question that all parents ask of their children, the question that is always so hard to answer: “Why did you do this?” And Jesus said something very strange. He said, “Didn’t you know that I would be in my Father’s house?” Mary and Joseph did not understand. Their house was in Nazareth… they didn’t understand that he was speaking about God, his Father. Even though they didn’t understand, they didn’t forget.”
