Teach Young Catholics About God's Love and Mercy with the Miracles of Healing Mobile.
The Miracles of Healing Mobile is designed to help children become familiar with different miraculous healings performed by Jesus Christ. This hands-on activity teaches about God's love for His children as Jesus healed many people. Christ performed miracles to show His Father's great love and mercy as well as to build the faith of those who witnessed the events.
Four pieces hang from this mobile. There is one part to represent each of the different miracles. All the student pieces are provided in black-and-white, but children should be encouraged to color and decorate the pieces. One side of each dangling medallion provides a title and Scripture reference while the other has an illustration for students to decorate if they wish.
As part of completing the activity, the teacher should provide a short explanation for each of the miracles or read the account directly from Scripture as children prepare their pieces. Older learners may enjoy a small discussion about Christ's healing miracles during or following the activity.
The events highlighted in the Miracles of Healing Mobile include the following.
- Mark 8:22-26 - Jesus Heals The Blind Man
- John 4:46-54 - Jesus Heals the Ruler’s Son
- Mark 1:40-45 - Jesus Heals The Man with Leprosy
