Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord.
7 Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord. Consider the farmer who waits patiently for the coming of rain in the fall and spring, looking forward to the precious fruit of the earth. 8 You also must wait patiently, strengthening your resolve, because the coming of the Lord is near. 9 Don’t complain about each other, brothers and sisters, so that you won’t be judged. Look! The judge is standing at the door!
10 Brothers and sisters, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord as an example of patient resolve and steadfastness.
The Child's Book contains what the child needs to prepare for celebrating first eucharist. It helps the child deepen the learning that begins in the parish sessions and is reinforced at home by activities with the other household members using the Family Activity Book. It is coordinated with the four parish sessions, following the same themes and scripture stories.
The book is designed:
The Child's Book is meant to be more personal or individual in use in contrast to the whole household approach of the Family Activity Book. The child is encouraged to think about the scripture story, respond to it by reflection and prayer, practice what is said and done to celebrate the rite and think about living a more thankful, eucharistic life.
Each session encourages a "Time to Talk" when the child shares with a parent, mentor or friend about the content of the session.
