But Jesus called the children to him and said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.”

Luke 18: 16

Lent V (March 30th)

Season of the Church Year: Lent (Liturgical Color: Purple)
Story in Scripture: John 9: 1-12
Throughout the Season on Lent, these Family Pages will consist of sharing the short story lesson that your child participated in, as well as the image that was used to convey the meaning of this day of preparation. Please hold on to all of the Lent summaries so that you can reflect on them again and again as we prepare for Easter and Jesus’ resurrection. 

“This is the 5th Sunday in the Season of Lent. Remember, Jesus was born as a little baby to his Mother Mary and Father Joseph. When he was a little boy, his parents lost him in the big city of Jerusalem, but they found him in the Temple, teaching. Later, his cousin John baptized him. He also spent a lot of time in the Wilderness, learning how strong God’s story is and how strong Jesus would have to be. Today, we will talk about what happened next. 

When Jesus came back from the desert, he began to do his good work. His work was to come close to people, especially the people no one else wanted to come close to. See? He came close to his blind man; he is so close that he touched the blind man’s eyes. When Jesus came close to people, they changed. They could see things they could never see before. They could do things they could never do before. They became well.

Jesus also told parables. Finally, he knew that he had to become a parable, so he turned toward Jerusalem for the last time…”
