Little Prophets

Welcome to Little Prophets!  We would like to share with you some great tools for helping our younger Catholics take a closer look at the Sunday readings.   We will share videos and activities that were created to help get them more engaged and excited about their faith! 
You can click on the images below to watch video reflections on the weekly readings and to download a weekly kids’ bulletin.  Please note that Miss Heidi posts her weekly videos on Friday or Saturday, so be sure to watch her YouTube site for her update.   Please visit the Children’s page at sundayprep.org/ for many more videos, activities, sermons and more for children of all ages.

Christ the King! Ordinary Time 34C: Solemnity of Christ, King of the Universe (Catholic Kids Media)
  • Who is John the Baptist?
  • How does the season of Advent hep us to welcome Jesus?
  • How can you make room in your heart for Jesus?

In today’s Gospel we find a bold and courageous character named John the Baptist. John helps people get ready for the coming of Jesus. Out of the wilderness, John the Baptist appears wearing clothing of camel’s hair. His food is locusts and wild honey. John calls people to prepare for the coming of the Messiah promised by God.

In today’s passage, John the Baptist calls for people to change their ways. He baptizes them so they can welcome Jesus into their hearts. John’s mission and message center on Jesus, the coming Messiah, for whom the people have been waiting. John lets the people know that the Lord is coming soon.

Let us pray:

Come Lord Jesus, make room in our hearts for you. Help us get ready to welcome you on Christmas.
We pray in the name of Christ our Lord.
Amen.
