This Week at SPX Edge!
This week at Edge, we walked the youth through what happens during the first half of the Mass and in particular the Liturgy of the Word. After the talk, the youth read about the two men on the road to Emmaus and discussed how elements of that story relate to our experience at Mass.
When we gather for Mass, we are brought together as a community, and our hearts are prepared to enter into the great mystery of the liturgy. (CCC 1348)
The Liturgy of the Word breaks open for us the Word of God, and through attentive listening and prayer, we can hear the voice of God and learn more about Him and what He calls us to do in our Christian life. (CCC 1349)
During the Mass, we also have the opportunity to pray for those in need, to give our of goods for those in need, and to bring our offerings along with the bread and wine to the priest to prepare of the Liturgy of the Eucharist. (CCC 1350-1351)
What is the Liturgy of the Word?
What part of Scripture do we hear during the readings?
God speaks to us through the Sacred Scripture, what can we do as a family to better prepare to hear God’s words?
What did you bring as your offering to God?
What is one new thing that you learned this week at Edge that you did not know before?
