THE HUMANITY OF JESUS CHRIST
All three readings today support—each in its own way, of course—a reflection on the humanity of Jesus Christ and how that humanity played a key role in the drama of our salvation. Although not chosen specifically to coordinate with the other two readings, today’s second reading does in fact carry forward the theme of Christ’s humanity in a remarkable way. The author of the Letter to the Hebrews highlights the solidarity that exists between Jesus and us, precisely because in his human nature Jesus has known the same sufferings and testing that are our own experience. Because he can “sympathize with our weaknesses,” we can “approach the throne of grace to receive mercy.” For the author of Hebrews, the humanity of Jesus was an essential requirement for his redemptive death, as well as an invitation to us to find in Jesus someone with whom we can identify in our daily struggles.

FAITH FORMATION
Grades 1-6

Children take delight in playing sports on a team, taking Karate, playing a musical 
instrument, and other after school activities.  All of these things help them to grow and mature.  Their Faith must not be left behind; it also needs to grow and mature as your children grow in understanding. Parents you are the leaders of your faith filled household.   We are happy to help you share your faith with your children as they grow into young men and women.  Contact Eileen Fewless at efewless@stbernardine.org.
