Elementary:

We begin in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.

That Kid

That kid has always been trouble.  Talking back, treating others with disrespect, swearing…"Get rid of that kid!" they all yelled!   The teacher agonized over the students' request. 

"To let go of that one kid for the sake of the others………hmmmm?"

I would like to share a passage from the Gospel of Luke that reads as follows:

            "Which of you, if you had 100 sheep, and lost one of them, wouldn't leave the 99 in the wilderness, and would go after the one that was lost until it was found?"

That kid…. was all that mattered…. to God.

You see, God's heart doesn't think like the human heart.  God's heart loves constantly and without reservation.  God's heart becomes our heart, when we love!

Let us pray,

We all know of someone who is lost and troubled.  They rebel against us and we are challenged by their words and actions.

Remind us Lord, that You have sent us these troubled people to support and guide. They are our brothers and sisters in Christ. 

For even when the lost sheep moved away from the others on purpose, You remind us Lord, that our task is to bring them back. 

Help us to be there for each other, for all of our SCHOOL NAME__-whenever any of us are lost!                 

In closing, we pray to a woman whose incredible worth allowed the son of God to be born into the world:

Hail Mary

Full of grace,

The Lord is with you.

Blessed are you among women

and Blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus.

Holy Mary, mother of God,

Pray for us sinners now

and at the hour of our death. Amen.

In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.  Amen.
