God visits us, too!


Today in the Gospel reading, we hear about a woman who was very sad. She was so sad, because her husband had died. Now, her only son had died, and she didnt have anybody to take care of her. When Jesus saw her, He told her not to cry. He touched her son and he rose up from the dead. Christ raised him from the dead. This was an amazing miracle. Nobody had ever seen THAT before! People said, God has visited His people! Another one of Gods miracles! They knew that this man, Jesus, was God. They knew that God had done something very special for them. But did you know that God has visited us, too? He visits us whenever we ask Him to. We have God with us all the time. Whenever we have a problembig or littlewe can pray to God and ask Him to help us. God has visited His people, and He still does!

Our 5 senses at Church


Can you think of two or three things you might TASTE in church?

Answers: Eulampios, Eulampia, Saint, Compassion, Son, Visit, Pray, Emperor. Final word: Heaven

About 1,700 years ago lived the Emperor Maximian, who hated Christians. He made a law that made it so Christians would be persecuted, or hurt, for their faith. Saint Eulampios tore up the paper with the law. You can bet that he got in big trouble for it. He told the judge he was a Christian and that he lived for Jesus Christ! But that just put him into even more trouble. His sister, Eulampia, heard what had happened to her brother, and she told the authorities she was a Christian too. Then the brother and sister suffered and were then killed. As siblings, Saints Eulampios and Eulampia might not have agreed on everything, but they definitely agreed on one thingthat they loved God more than anything, and that they wanted to be with Him in Heaven!
We celebrate the nameday of these saints on Thursday, October 10th.
