TUESDAY 14TH JULY

LIFE SIZE DRAWINGS

Stick a load of A4 sheets of paper together (or if you have a big paper roll even better!) and place it on the floor. Encourage the kids to lie down on it and outline their body with a pen. From this moment on there is no way to stop the kids getting creative: colour in, add accessories to the figures like stickers or stamps, design clothes with old material offcuts or other things you might find in the art drawer. Design a football kit or a prom outfit.  The kids will have lots of fun with the real-size copies and you may have something really special to decorate  their bedroom wall afterwards.  Don't forget to send photos of your drawings in to admin @stmary (full address above)

Tongue-twisters are phrases that are designed to be challenging to say.  Kids are encouraged to repeat each saying as many times as possible, as quickly as possible, without making a mistake.  But enjoy the slip-ups… Tongue twisters are meant to be fun for the whole family!

Try these with your kids!

  • A cheap ship trip.
  • I can think of six thin things and of six thick things too.
  • Sam’s shop stocks short spotted socks.
  • Fat frogs flying past fast.
  • Red leather, yellow leather.
  • Selfish shellfish.
  • Shredded Swiss cheese.
  • The crow flew over the river with a lump of raw liver.
  • Red bulb blue bulb, red bulb blue bulb
  • Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers.
  • Which wristwatches are Swiss wristwatches?
  • Purple Paper People, Purple Paper People, Purple Paper People
  • Six slippery snails, slid slowly seaward.
  • Freshly-fried flying fish.
  • How much wood could a wood chuck; chuck if a wood chuck could chuck wood
  • She sells sea shells by the sea shore

What are your favorite tongue twisters?

RE- Bridge building in the Christian community

One day when Pope John Paul II was blessing all the people in the crowded Square of St. Peter’s in Rome, one man in the crowd fired his gun and the bullet hit the Pope in the stomach. Immediately, his car gathered speed to take him away and his bodyguard took care of his wounds. He was rushed to hospital and everybody thought he would die. Luckily, he didn’t die and he lived to carry on his life and good works.

One day, he decided he would go to the prison where the assassin was being held. He wanted to show he had forgiven this man for what he had done. The two men made peace with one another. Much later when the Pope died, the man was seen at his funeral.

These words were said by St. Paul to the people living in Colossae:

As God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience. Put up with one another and, if anyone has a complaint against another, forgive one another; just as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.  Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, that is why you belong to the Christian family. And always be thankful.Colossians 3: 12-15.

RE -.Absolution.

When we do something wrong and then later feel sorry about it, we want to make up for it in some way. This is a sign that we will try to do better in the future. The priest gives the person a penance to fulfil. Sometimes it is a prayer to say or sometimes the priest might ask the person to do something extra.Then, after the person prays an Act of Sorrow, the priest raises his hands as a sign of God’s love and says the words of forgiveness and absolution. He asks God to forgive and absolve the person from their sins. To be absolved of sin means to be free from sin. Those sins are no longer part of your life. This is what the priest says:

I absolve you from your sins in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

This sacrament is a special way to experience God’s love and peace. The person usually stays in church or in a quiet place to say their penance, if it is a prayer. They will thank God for this opportunity to experience his love and forgiveness and promise to try to do better.

 SOME KEY QUESTIONS

  • Q What does it mean to be absolved?
  • Q Why does the priest raise his hands?
  • Q Who does the priest ask to forgive and absolve their sins?
  • Q Why do you think there is a choice for the priest to give a prayer or an action for the penance?

MAIN TASK 

Reflect on some of the ways you wish to do better.Compose a prayer about this and the help/support you seek from the Holy Spirit.

RE - Penitential Rite 1 and 2.

Rite means ritual or ceremony, a way of doing things.

There are two different ways of celebrating the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Rite 1 and Rite 2. 

In Rite 1, individuals will make their Confession to the priest. Before they do that, they will have prayed and thought carefully about their life, have contrition and want to make a new start. They will tell the priest their sins and listen carefully to his advice.

Sometimes Rite 2 of the Sacrament of Reconciliation is used. This often happens in Advent and Lent when people gather together to prepare for the feasts of Christmas or Easter. In Rite 2, a number of people come together for the Sacrament of Reconciliation, often with a few priests who have come from neighbouring parishes. There is a service of prayers and readings, which help people to prepare. They are then invited to make a personal confession to one of the priests available. Sometimes schools will have a Penitential Service with the opportunity for confession, Rite 2.  Whatever a person talks to the priest about is in absolute confidence. They can feel that they are talking to God alone.When the confessions are finished, the priest invites everyone to thank and praise God for his mercy and forgiveness.

SOME KEY QUESTIONS 

  • Q Have you ever celebrated the Sacrament of Reconciliation?
  • Q How did you prepare for the Sacrament of Reconciliation?
  • Q Why do you think it is helpful to go to the Sacrament of Reconciliation?
  • Q What is hard about it and what is good?
  • Q Why do you think people would come together to celebrate Rite 2?

 MAIN TASK

Consider Rites 1 and 2 of the Sacrament of Reconciliation.  Make a list of the differences and similarities between them.

RE -  The Sacrament of Reconciliation: contrition.

The Sacrament of Reconciliation is also called Confession, Penance and Sacrament of Forgiveness.  This Sacrament has been given to us to confess or acknowledge our sins, seek forgiveness and be reconciled to God and one another. It is like a bridge. It helps Christians to live as followers of Jesus, knowing that forgiveness leads to joy and peace. In this sacrament, those receiving it may be sure of the love and mercy of God.

The most important thing that people preparing to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation need is to be sorry for their sins. There is a special word for this – ‘contrition’. When you have had a quarrel with someone, you can never make up unless you are really and truly sorry – that is, if you have contrition. It about realising the consequences of what you have done, the hurt you have caused to others, as well as to yourself. When you have contrition, you will try very hard not to sin again and there will be peace in your heart.

God expects us to build bridges with our family and friends before we can take our place in church. Listen to what Jesus says in Matthew’s Gospel:

 So if you are about to offer your gift to God at the altar and there you remember that another has something against you, leave your gift there in front of the altar, go at once and make peace with that person, and then come back and offer your gift to God.Matthew 5: 23-24

  • Q How do you feel when you have done something wrong?
  • Q What is the next thing you might do?
  • Q How does sin affect others and yourself?
  • Q Why is contrition so important?
  • Q Why did Jesus say that it is no good putting gifts on the altar if you are not at peace with someone?

 MAIN TASK

Take time to pause and reflect. Write your own prayer of sorrow to God. It is called an Act of Contrition.

RE -  Sin and Examination of Conscience. 

People get lost when they deliberately do something wrong, hurting others, themselves or the world they live in.  That is what is called ‘sin’.  It is anything deliberately chosen – to think, say or do.  It is also anything you choose to do or not to do that spoils or breaks the friendship with God and with other people.  Sin is anything which breaks bridges of love.

When Jesus was teaching, someone came up to him and asked him what he thought was the greatest commandment of all. This is what Jesus replied: “You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.” The second most important commandment is this: “Love your neighbour as yourself.”  There is no other commandment more important than these two. Mark 12: 30-31

Christians try to build bridges towards one another every day. They ‘examine their consciences’ to see how they have kept these two commandments. Our conscience is like a voice or feeling inside us. This is the Holy Spirit helping us to respond to God. If we pay attention to the Holy Spirit, it will help us to know if something is good or bad. It is good to think every evening, before you go to bed, about how you have built bridges of love and friendship or, perhaps, broken them through sin. We remember if we have done something that hurt someone else or if someone else has hurt us. We can thank God for all the good and say sorry for the bad and know that God, like the good shepherd, cares about us and loves us. We also must try to forgive those who have hurt us.

SOME KEY QUESTIONS 

  • Q What does “examine your conscience” mean?
  • Q When is it good to think about it? What will it lead us to do?
  • Q Which is easier – to love God or to love your neighbour? Is there a difference?
  • Q Why do you think love of God and love of our neighbour is so important?
  • Q What would be another commandment?
  • Q How would you define ‘sin’?

MAIN TASK

Remember a time when you have reached out to someone you have hurt or offended. Describe how the bridge was broken and give reasons for how you rebuilt the bridge.

RE -  Everyone is loved by Jesus 

The Good Shepherd (based on Luke 15:3-6,7)

One day Jesus said, “Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. What do you do? You leave the other ninety-nine sheep grazing on the hillside and go looking for the one that got lost until you find it. When you find it, you are so happy that you put it on your shoulders and carry it back home. Then you call your friends and neighbours together. “I am so happy,” you say, “because I have found my lost sheep. Let’s celebrate!” “It’s like that with people,” Jesus told them. “If ninety-nine people stay close to God that’s good. But if one who has turned away from God and done something wrong says sorry and comes back to God, then that is a reason to celebrate. God is like the good shepherd, always searching for the lost sheep, looking out the person who has turned away.”

  • Q What did the story of the ‘lost sheep’mean to you?
  • Q Did it surprise you that the shepherd would go to find the one lost sheep?
  • Q When are the times you might see yourself as the lost sheep?
  • Q What does this story tell you about God?

MAIN TASK

 Design a ‘map’ for a Christian on their life’s journey who may be ‘lost’ and wants to be found – include on it ‘signposts’ of advice and ways to live their lives.  Use your knowledge of how Jesus teaches us  to live our lives for your signposts  for example say sorry when you make a mistake and pray when you need help.

RE - Bridge building in the Christian community.

One day when Pope John Paul II was blessing all the people in the crowded Square of St. Peter’s in Rome, one man in the crowd fired his gun and the bullet hit the Pope in the stomach.  Immediately, his car gathered speed to take him away and his bodyguard took care of his wounds.  He was rushed to hospital and everybody thought he would die.  Luckily, he didn’t die and he lived to carry on his life and good works.

One day, he decided he would go to the prison where the assassin was being held.  He wanted to show he had forgiven this man for what he had done.  The two men made peace with one another.  Much later when the Pope died, the man was seen at his funeral.

The words of St. Paul to the people living in Colossae:

As God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience.  Put up with one another and, if anyone has a complaint against another, forgive one another; just as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.   Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.  And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, that is why you belong to the Christian family.  And always be thankful.          Colossians 3: 12-15.

 Q Did anything impress you in this story?

Q Which of the words in St. Paul would you think describes the Pope’s action?

Q What are the reconciliation words that St. Paul mentions?

Q How did St. John Paul II build a bridge?

Q How does St. Paul suggest we can build bridges when we fail in Jesus’ commandment?

Q If you have fallen out with a good friend what could you do to reach out to them, to build a bridge towards them?

Main Task

Write a postcard or text to a friend saying why you are friends and how you might continue this friendship in the future.  Use some of the Scripture used in this topic. Send them into school and Mr Stringer will pass them on to your friend.

RE - Absolution - 

The priest is saying the words of absolution at the end of the Sacrament of Reconciliation. 

View document absolution_prayer_-_y4_og_193.pdf

When we do something wrong and then later feel sorry about it, we want to make up for it in some way.  This is a sign that we will try to do better in the future.  The priest gives the person a penance to fulfil.  Sometimes it is a prayer to say or sometimes the priest might ask the person to do something extra.  Then, after the person prays an Act of Sorrow, the priest raises his hands as a sign of God’s love and says the words of forgiveness and absolution.  He asks God to forgive and absolve the person from their sins. To be absolved of sin means to be free from sin.  Those sins are no longer part of your life.  This is what the priest says:

I absolve you from your sins in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

This sacrament is a special way to experience God’s love and peace.  The person usually stays in church or in a quiet place to say their penance, if it is a prayer.  They will thank God for this opportunity to experience his love and forgiveness and promise to try to do better.

Q What does it mean to be absolved?

Q Why does the priest raise his hands?

Q Who does the priest ask to forgive and absolve their sins?

Q Why do you think there is a choice for the priest to give a prayer or an action for the penance?

Main Task

Reflect on some of the ways you wish to do better. Compose a prayer about this and the help/support you seek from the Holy Spirit.

RE - Penitential Rite 1 and 2 -

There are two different ways of celebrating the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Rite 1 and Rite 2.

In Rite 1, individuals will make their Confession to the priest.  Before they do that, they will have prayed and thought carefully about their life, have contrition and want to make a new start.  They will tell the priest their sins and listen carefully to his advice.  

Sometimes Rite 2 of the Sacrament of Reconciliation is used.  This often happens in Advent and Lent when people gather together to prepare for the feasts of Christmas or Easter.  In Rite 2, a number of people come together for the Sacrament of Reconciliation, often with a few priests who have come from neighbouring parishes.  There is a service of prayers and readings, which help people to prepare.  They are then invited to make a personal confession to one of the priests available.  Sometimes schools will have a Penitential Service with the opportunity for confession, Rite 2.  Whatever a person talks to the priest about is in absolute confidence.  They can feel that they are talking to God alone.  When the confessions are finished, the priest invites everyone to thank and praise God for his mercy and forgiveness.

  • Q Have you ever celebrated the Sacrament of Reconciliation?
  • Q How did you prepare for the Sacrament of Reconciliation?
  • Q Why do you think it is helpful to go to the Sacrament of Reconciliation?
  • Q What is hard about it and what is good?
  • Q Why do you think people would come together to celebrate Rite 2?

Main Task

Consider Rites 1 and 2 of the Sacrament of Reconciliation.  Make a list of the differences and similarities between them.

RE - The Sacrament of Reconciliation: contrition.

The Sacrament of Reconciliation is also called Confession, Penance and Sacrament of Forgiveness.  This Sacrament has been given to us to confess or acknowledge our sins, seek forgiveness and be reconciled to God and one another.  It is like a bridge.  It helps Christians to live as followers of Jesus, knowing that forgiveness leads to joy and peace.  In this sacrament, those receiving it may be sure of the love and mercy of God.

The most important thing that people preparing to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation need is to be sorry for their sins.  There is a special word for this – ‘contrition’.  When you have had a quarrel with someone, you can never make up unless you are really and truly sorry – that is, if you have contrition.  It about realising the consequences of what you have done, the hurt you have caused to others, as well as to yourself.  When you have contrition, you will try very hard not to sin again and there will be peace in your heart.

God expects us to build bridges with our family and friends before we can take our place in church.  This is what Jesus says in Matthew’s Gospel:

So if you are about to offer your gift to God at the altar and there you remember that another has something against you, leave your gift there in front of the altar, go at once and make peace with that person, and then come back and offer your gift to God.                                                                                                                                        Matthew 5: 23-24

Q What is the man in the picture is doing?

Q What makes you think he is sorry for something?

Q How does this picture make you feel?

Q How do you feel when you have done something wrong?

Q What is the next thing you might do?

Q What is happening in the second picture?

Q How does sin affect others and yourself?

Q Why is contrition so important?

Q Why did Jesus say that it is no good putting gifts on the altar if you are not at peace with someone?

Main Task

Take time to pause and reflect. Write your own prayer of sorrow to God. It is called an Act of Contrition.
