If Jesus Had a Cell Phone…

Here’s an interesting topic for discussion I found over at The Religion Teacher… I’ll be posing it to my CCD class of 4th, 5th, and 6th graders this week.

If Jesus had a cell phone, who’d be His “fave five”…

I’m curious to see who the kids might say… Mary, The Pope, Our Priest?  The key is to show them how all encompassing God’s love for us is, that we’d all be in His five… it’s part of the great mystery of faith.

Here’s an excerpt I love from The Religion Teacher…

I wish I could recall the name of the priest who told the story of a young student asking him why Jesus chose that particular year and that particular day and why he had to die on the cross. The priest, then a seminarian, gave a deep catechetical response that fit perfectly with the Church’s teaching on the fullness of time and the historical background to Roman execution practices, etc. But finally, the student proposed another reason. He said, “you know, I think there is something else. I think Jesus was crucified in that year, on that day, in that hour so he could save the good thief.”

That’s how Awesome our God is!
