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.
This week’s Gospel:
I want to tell you a story,
About sitting by Jesus’ side.
They wanted the fame and the glory,
So two brothers pulled Him aside.
James and John asked Jesus,
“Can we sit on your left and your right?
Everyone in Heaven will see us,
And it will be our biggest delight.”
“Do you even know what you’re asking?”
Are you willing to drink from my cup?
Can you live the life that I’m living?
From my baptism, could you even come up?”
When the rest of the twelve overheard it,
They got angry with John and James.
Surely Jesus would see they were unfit,
But why did they think He’d choose their names?
So He gathered all twelve around Him,
And He spoke of what true greatness is.
It’s not thrones, crowns, gold or gems,
but serving others needs before His.
Those who are greatest don’t look it.
You would never guess who they are.
They may look like a maid or a servant,
But in God’s eyes they’re really a star.
Jesus came down from Heaven to serve us,
To wash our feet and our hearts alike.
To teach, help, lead, and love us,
And show us what greatness looks like.
