Religion classes this week encompassed Gospel reflections, praying the rosary, and looking at themes in the text. Our discussions center on the various ways we can see God as a mature member of the church. This week we are exploring, “Why am I here?” looking at how we individually see Jesus. We also explain how Jesus is part of Holy Trinity (God the father, God the son and God the Holy Spirit). This can be a confusing idea to understand, but it lends itself to a thoughtful discussion about the many ways we can see God in nature, song, beauty, and all around us. It is a beautiful day today (weather) – we can all take a moment to thank Jesus!
