Use That Weekly Liturgy Lesson for Kids - 15th Sunday in Ordinary Time (Cycle B) to teach children that a good Christian friend can help us be brave and follow Jesus. The inspiration for this lesson is the Gospel of St. Mark 6:7-13 - Christ sends forth the Twelve.
In today’s Gospel, Jesus sends out the Twelve on a mission. Christ sends them out, giving them the power and authority to cast out demons and heal the sick throughout the area. Knowing that the task will be difficult, Jesus sends them out in pairs of two and gives them specific instructions. Not only would the men be company for each other on the journey, but more importantly, the two could encourage each other to be strong, faithful, courageous, and obedient to Christ’s instructions. We, too, must remember that having a good Christian friend can help us bravely follow Jesus.
