Have your parents ever told you to set a good example? Or maybe a teacher has told you that? Playing together, eating meals together, working on projects together, saying our prayers together…if one person does the wrong thing, other kids might follow his example!
We are getting closer to the beginning of Great Lent, and we know that a big part of Lent is improving how we act. The epistle today gives us a little advice about how we should try to set a good example with how we act.
In the Church, we know that we are all Christians together. We can help each other or hurt each other by how we act. Saint Paul told the early Christians this, and he tells us this today! Let’s try to be good examples for each other, especially during this special time of Lent. God wants us to help each other grow closer to Him. Can you try to do that, with your family and with your friends?
Saint Nicholas of Planas: A Modern Saint
Do you have a photograph of your patron saint? Probably not! Most of the saints of our Church lived before cameras were invented. But on Wednesday, we will celebrate the feast day of Saint Nicholas of Athens. And we do have a photograph of him! He died less than a hundred years ago, in 1932. We celebrate Saint Nicholas on Wednesday, March 2nd (OC: March 15th).
