Our Prayer for this week:
Give us grace, O Lord, to answer readily the call of our Savior Jesus Christ and proclaim to all people the Good News of his salvation, that we and the whole world may perceive the glory of his marvelous works; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
For this week's Sabbath Feast, our focus will be about Jesus' call to his disciples to follow Him from the Book of Mark. We will discuss how we too can "proclaim the good news of God" in our home, neighborhood, and church with our family, friends, and strangers.
This call fits so well in the season of Epiphany. He has made Himself Manifest and as we follow Him, we can reflect His light to others.
For our feast, we will begin 3 courses: a simple green salad, Roasted Chicken with mash potatoes and asparagus and finish with brownies. I hope to use the leftover chicken for chicken salad sandwiches on Sunday, Chicken Tetrazzini to go in the deep freeze, and a Chicken Soup for Monday.
I've printed these coloring pages for the kids: http://new.catholicmom.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/01/01_25_09.pdf
And we will play a fishing puzzle we have too!
I'll let you know how it goes! Love to hear how your family time went and what the Third Sunday after Epiphany means to you.
