Before it gets too much farther into 2009, don't miss the opportunity to share this year's (cycle B) Gospel readings with your children in an appealing kid-friendly book!
Author, Jonathan Stampf, has put together a wonderful tool for families with younger children to help draw them in to each week's Gospel story. Reading the story before Mass each Sunday is a great way to motivate little ears to "listen" for the familiar story. During Mass, with a little help from Mom or Dad, children can follow along as the Gospel is proclaimed. And finally, the story can be read again--perhaps at bedtime or family prayers throughout the week--as a review of the Sunday Gospel message.
