Good Morning, My Beautiful Saints!

Yesterday, we learned that Jesus was Obedient even unto death. H e loved us so much He even forgave those who were hurting Him.

Today, we are going to Learn about the Cross.

The Cross

Read the last paragraph on page 114.




  • God made time, so He may work outside of time.
  • At Mass, we are present for the Last Supper.
  • A sacrifice is giving up something dear to us completely to God.
  • Jesus was sacrificed on the Cross. 
  • He gave up His Life, Body and Blood for our sins on the Cross.
  • He died and was sacrificed to God for us.
  • Every sacrifice happens on an altar.
  • The Cross was Jesus’ altar.
  • In every church there is an altar. The sacrifice of Jesus on the Cross is made present during Consecration.
  • Remember, the Mass is not a new sacrifice. It is the same sacrifice on the Cross which is presented to us.
  •  Jesus is not sacrificed over and over. He was sacrificed only once.
    • We are present for this sacrifice by participating in the Mass.
    • That is why it is important to say the responses and sing during mass.
    • Jesus’ suffering and death on the Cross made us friends of God again.
    • We lost our friendship with God when Adam and Eve committed Original Sin.
    • If we share in His sacrificial meal, Holy Eucharist, and have His life in us, we are sharing in God’s friendship.

Good Morning, my beautiful Saints!


Next week is Holy Week. It is the week when the church celebrates Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem, the Last Supper, and Jesus’ suffering and death on the cross.  And finally, Easter Sunday, when we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus from the dead.

  • This week we are going to learn about the events that took place after Jesus ate His last Passover meal, also known as the Last Supper with His disciples.
  • Do you remember what happened at the Last Supper?
  • Yes, Jesus gave us the Holy Eucharist, His Body and Blood. He also made the disciples the first priests, and gave them the power to “Do this in memory of Me.Jesus Dies For UsExplanation:
    • Jesus and His disciples had just celebrated the Last Supper. This took place on Thursday which is also known as Holy Thursday.
    • In the narrative of the Last Supper in the Bible, Jesus said, “which will be poured out for you.” This was about to happen, so Jesus went to the Garden of Olives to pray and ask God the Father to make Him strong and brave.
    • The first Sorrowful Mysteries is “The Agony in the Garden.”
    • This mystery is about this event, when Jesus took some of His disciples to the Garden of Olives to pray.
    • Jesus knew that He would die for our sins.
    • God the Father wanted Him to lay down His life for our sins.
    • Jesus was willing to do this out of love for us.
    • He felt sad for our sins.
    • Jesus died for all the sins that were ever committed and even for the sins of the future.
    • Even if there were just two people, Jesus would have died because He loves us so much.
    • If Jesus had been afraid it would have been hard for Him to die on the Cross for our sins.
    • Jesus said to God the Father, “Thy will be done.”
    • We say these words when we pray the Our Father.
    • We too should pray to God to make us brave when we have to do something we are afraid to do.

    Did you know that olive trees can live for hundreds of years? We get olives and olive oil from the olive tree.


    Good Morning, my Beautiful Saints!

    Yesterday, we learned that after the Last Supper, Jesus went to the Garden of Olives to pray to God The Father to make Him strong and brave to die for our sins.

    Today, we are going to learn about how much Jesus suffered for our sins.

    Jesus Suffered

    • When we say the Apostles’ Creed we say, “Suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified , died and was buried.”
    • When we did our presentation on Faith and performed the skit, do you remember you took turns to say the Creed?
    • We are going to focus on the suffering of Jesus. How did He suffer?
    • Jesus was scourged, which means He was whipped.
    • This is the second mystery of The Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary.
    • After whipping Jesus, the soldiers made a crown of thorns, put it on His head, and made fun of Him.
    • The crowning with thorns is the third mystery of the Holy Rosary.
    • They made Jesus carry His Cross.
    • When we pray The Stations of the Cross, we remember Jesus’ suffering and dying on the cross.
    • Do you remember how many stations there are? We prayed the Stations of the Cross in the classroom.
    • This Friday, pray the Stations of the Cross with your family.
    • Jesus did not commit any sin, but He suffered and died for your sins and my sins.



Good Morning My Beautiful Saints!

We learned that Jesus suffered under Pontius Pilate. We say these words when say the Creed.  The soldiers  scourged or whipped Jesus  and made fun of him. Then they put a crown of thorns on His head.

Today, we will learn that Jesus died for us.

Jesus Dies For Us


  • Jesus was obedient to God the Father, even unto death.
  • Jesus was obedient and at the same loved us so much .
  • He even forgave the people who hurt him.
  • Jesus’ forgiveness is always there waiting for us.  We simply need to ask Him for forgiveness when we sin against Him.
  • While Jesus was on the Cross, people wanted to test Him to see if He was the Son of God.
  • Does this remind you of anything that we learned in the classroom?
  • If your answer was Jesus’ temptation in the desert, you are right!
  • Do you think Jesus could have come down from the Cross?
  • Yes, He could have, but then Jesus knew how important His death on the Cross was to our salvation.
  • Jesus had to die on the Cross so the gates of Heaven would be open.
  • Jesus loves us so much He wants us to be with Him forever in Heaven.
  • Adam and Eve were disobedient to God.
  • The gates of Heaven were closed because of this disobedience.
  • Adam and Eve also brought death into the world.
  • Jesus obeyed God the Father and opened the gates of Heaven.
  • Jesus’ obedience gave us  everlasting life with Him in Heaven.
  • Jesus is known as the New Adam.
  • Mary is known as the New Eve.
  • Both Mary and Jesus said “Yes” to God.

The calendar helps us to know the days of the week and the Months of the year. The calendar also helps us to know the seasons and even what year it is. We had a calendar both in front and at the back of our classroom, so you know what a calendar looks like.

Today, we are going to use a calendar to answer questions.

Do you remember the calendar song? Sing with me.

January, February, M-a-r-c-h April, May, June, Jul-y, August. September, October, November, December. Then we turn around!
