Good morning ___school name____.
Wherever you are at home or at school, please stand up for Jesus and join me in the sign of our faith. In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen
It's always good to start a new month with some guidance and direction. That is exactly what Jesus gives us today. Today is April 1st and it is Holy Thursday.
At the last Supper, Jesus washes the disciples' feet. He tells them to do the same for others. Does that mean we should wash each other's feet? Well, if that's what they need to be the best people they can be, then sure!
The bible tells us that during the last meal Jesus had with his friends, he serves others. He prays for his friends. He also shows forgiveness and love to all his friends, even though some of them don't really deserve it. So we too, must show forgiveness and love.
During this new month of April, let's work hard at following Jesus' example – to pray, forgive, share and serve one another.
As we go our separate ways for the Easter holidays, we ask God to protect us and keep us safe. May we take time to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus on Easter Sunday and remember the great sacrifice that Jesus made for all of us.
Thank you Jesus!
We make all our prayers in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen
