prepReflect on this video together

This lovely - and very short - video  tells a tale that we all can relate to, as adults and as children.

Watch it first for yourself and look for the feelings that it evokes in you. What do the last words mean for you, as a parent and as a child of God?

After you watch with your child, talk about it. Is there anything that God can't forgive, even if we feel very ashamed? Why is that true?
missalBuying a Missal for Your Child

At our meeting, I suggested that you might want to buy a missal for your child now.  It will help him or her to learn the mass prayers as s/he follows along. And it is fun to take one's own special book to church!
