‘From the mouth of Children and Infants you have fashioned praise’
BY:DAVID and DENA 6S
On Monday 25th of March our school celebrated Palm Sunday. We celebrated Palm Sunday by going to mass. After church we were given palm branches and the whole school walked around the church and the choir sang ‘All the Church chant Hosanna’. Then 4I re-enacted how Jesus entered Jerusalem by riding on a donkey. When Jesus entered Jerusalem the people laid their cloaks and palm branches on the ground and were singing, “Hosanna to the Son of David!” “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” “Hosanna in the highest heaven!”
The last supper
During the re-enactment of the Last Supper
Jesus did two things:
• Jesus took the BREAD and broke it, giving it to his disciples. He said: “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.”
• Then Jesus took the CUP, gave it to his disciples saying: “This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you. Do this in remembrance of me.”
Then he washed his disciples’ feet to teach them that the greatest among them should become their servant.
Easter is the day when we celebrate Jesus Christ rising from the dead. Jesus is the Son of God and heroically gave His life to die for our sins. On the third day after He died — the day we now celebrate as Easter Sunday. His friends went to His grave, and found that He had risen from the dead. They saw an angel who told them, “Don’t be afraid! I know you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He isn’t here! He has been raised from the dead, just as He said it would happen.”
Jesus rose from the dead on Easter Sunday; now He offers to you the gift of eternal life and forgiveness of sins. This is the true story of Easter, and how it can change your life.
Feast of the ascension:
On the 9th May our school celebrated the Feast of the Ascension of our Lord Jesus Christ. Girls in kindergarten wore white dresses and went to church to receive the Holy Eucharist. Then we celebrated the Feast of the Ascension by going to our school hall to learn the significance of the Ascension of our Lord Jesus. We learnt that the Feast of the Ascension/Eeda d solaqa occurs 40 days after Easter Sunday. Before Jesus went up to heaven He gave His disciples some very special instructions. He told them they are to teach everyone about the Gospel. After Jesus said this he went into the clouds and the disciples couldn’t see him anymore. Even though Jesus has ascended into heaven He will never leave us and has promised us He will come back again.
Feast of Pentecost
Ten days after Jesus had gone back to His Father in heaven, the disciples had all gathered in one place. They were scared because Jesus had left them.
All of a sudden they heard what it sounded like very strong wind. They saw like flames of fire in shape of tongues that rested on them.
As this happened the disciples became very strong and confident. They knew that Jesus had sent the helper that He promised them. The helper is the Holy Spirit which would help them to teach about Jesus.
Then the disciples started to speak in many different languages including Assyrian. They went out to teach everyone about Jesus.
On this wonderful day we celebrate the birth of the Church.
