JUMPING AHEAD

Next session we will be focusing on the Paschal Mystery.

This is Jesus passion, death, resurrection and ascension and the significance of those things for our lives. We will be asking questions to discover what Jesus’ death and resurrection mean for us as Christians today and why they are so important to our faith journey. Read the article below and please discuss the questions below with your parent before our next session.

THE PASCHAL MYSTERY IN EVERYDAY LIFE

1. Based off the article you just read, discuss with your parent some "dyings" you have experienced in your life.

2. What is the most recent "rising" you have experienced? Share this with your parent.

3. Why do you think God chose to take on flesh and become human? What was His goal?
