Faith Formation Age 3-Grade 8

adobestock 369750481Living out Faith in our lives during Ordinary Time
Especially through First Eucharist!

In Today’s Gospel the crowds listen intently to Jesus' words but do not understand what he is really saying and offering.  He has fed them but they don’t recognize that this food is so much more and so they keep asking for more. Jesus is the bread that gives us life. How does believing in Jesus make your life different?

 

A few reflections to consider from Our Sunday Visitor:

 

  • Make unleavened bread, the type Jesus shared with his disciples and share it.

  • Have the family sit around a table. Play some reflective music. Pass around a loaf of bread. Invite each person to break off a piece of bread, telling them not to eat the bread yet. When everyone has taken a piece of bread, invite them to examine the bread: smell it, feel it, and look closely. Finally, ask them to eat the bread. Ask them to share the results of their examination and what memories and thoughts came to mind as they ate the bread. Do the same with grape juice.

  • You are Jesus’ hands and feet on this earth. There are many hungry people waiting for help. Have your family help at a food bank or soup kitchen. If possible, go as a family to deliver food to a shut-in. Discuss what hunger feels like. Discuss what it must feel like to be delivered from that hunger.

  • Discuss what your daily spiritual diet is like. Is it junk food, baby food, frozen food? How have you changed to become a spiritual person who eats healthy food and reflects it as a result? You are what you eat.
