Mass 08.15.19 – The First Disciple

The students of St. Alphonsus Catholic School have a foundation in faith. On a daily basis they receive scripture, engage in prayer, and have the opportunity to experience their faith with their friends and teachers on a very real level. Today was the first Mass of the year where students sat with their class and experienced scripture, communion, prayer, and a special message from Father Mike. (Today’s mass was a special Holy Day of Obligation, the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary.)
 
Here are a few things Father Mike talked about to help make today’s Mass meaningful in your home too:
– Mary was the first intentional disciple.
– She was so excited to be Jesus’ mother that she told every one of God’s work.
– We can be excited about the amazing things God does in our life, too.
– She shared her son, Jesus, with us. Jesus ultimately shared His body with us when he died.
– It is good to share with others. What good things about God can we share with others?
