Children’s Message December 4th, 2022

This is the season of Advent, the time we get ready to celebrate the mystery of Christmas, the time we are all on the way to Bethlehem. But who will show us the way?
The prophets listen to God. So they can show us the way. The candle of the prophets reminds us that prophets like Isaiah listen and spoke the word of God.
Mary and Joseph are on the way to Bethlehem. They can show us the way. They have a secret. An angel came to them and said,” Do not be afraid. Be joyful. You will have God’s special son. You will name him Jesus.”
The candle of the Holy Family reminds us not to be afraid, but be joyful on the way to Bethlehem. Be filled with peace.
I wonder how Mary and Jospeh felt on the way to Bethlehem?……..
What if the animals could say a prayer when Jesus was born?….
Peace is having no fear!
