For Parents To Teach To Their Children
“The Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ”
Gospel Mk 14:12-16, 22-26
On the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread,
when they sacrificed the Passover lamb,
Jesus’ disciples said to him,
‘Where do you want us to go
and prepare for you to eat the Passover?’
He sent two of his disciples and said to them,
‘Go into the city and a man will meet you,
carrying a jar of water.
Wherever he enters, say to the master of the house,
‘The Teacher says, ‘Where is my guest room
where I may eat the Passover with my disciples?’
Then he will show you a large upper room furnished and ready.
Make the preparations for us there.’
The disciples then went off, entered the city,
and found it just as he had told them;
and they prepared the Passover.
While they were eating,
he took bread, said the blessing,
broke it, gave it to them, and said,
‘Take it; this is my body.’
Then he took a cup, gave thanks, and gave it to them,
and they all drank from it.
He said to them,
‘This is my blood of the covenant,
which will be shed for many.
Amen, I say to you,
I shall not drink again the fruit of the vine
until the day when I drink it new in the kingdom of God.’
Then, after singing a hymn,
they went out to the Mount of Olives.”

Our Art Projects– Try Making Something New!
There are numerous objects that can be drawn or painted. Youngest children, preparing for First Holy Communion, can enjoy drawing a simple Chalice and Paten using crayons, markers, chalk or watercolor paint. Perhaps they would also like to draw or paint a Cross. Older children, perhaps preparing for their Confirmation, will like to tackle some of the more exotic methods to paint or draw, using aluminum foil, bubble wrap, or any other fun material to make something beautiful. I suggest that the watercolor paper be used for watercolors, because it is strong and can be used with different tools. Have fun and enjoy trying new art methods and supplies.
