Spelling/Writing: Lesson 19 (suffixes -ful, -ness, -less, -ment) The test will be this Friday, April 15.
Because Jesus is human like us, he reveals what God is like more fully than anything in creation. The sun that rises each morning reminds us God is in charge of the world. The spring flowers show us the life and beauty that come from God. But in Jesus we see God's love for us with a human face. Jesus hugged little children and gathered them around him. He raised up the sick and brought outsiders into his circle of friends. He have his life so that we might share the life of God.
Jesus gives himself as our nourishment in every Eucharist. We gather weekly for a remembering party at which we come and eat as Jesus asked us to do in his memory.
