That Weekly Liturgy Lesson – Feast of the Holy Family (Cycle A) Can Help Draw Kids Closer to Christ.
Use That Weekly Liturgy Lesson – Feast of the Holy Family (Cycle A) to help teach children about being ready to respond to God's will. The inspiration for this lesson is the Gospel of St. Matthew 2:13-15, 19-23, the Holy Family's flight into Egypt.
In this week's Gospel, St. Joseph shows his immediate and willing response to participate in God's plan for him and the Holy Family. As an angel delivers the message of danger to him, Joseph quickly decides to trust the holy messenger and obey God's will. This event should serve as a reminder for us to examine our own preparedness and willingness to serve God in His timing - not ours. Are we eager to serve Him by serving others? Or are we hoping to hit the "snooze button" until we are ready to interact with God?
