Virtue Assembly HOPE Adrian D Antoni P Kishabel B Gustavo M Trisha D
OPENING PRAYER Dear Lord, Gathered in our room, are all hopeful students of Ms. Dela-Cruz’s grade five and six class. Some who are hoping to do well in school, others who wish to improve in a certain subject. With the season of giving in full force, some are hopeful to find gifts for loved ones, others to receive gifts that they’ve asked for. We pray for the hopeful outside of our class, those in our families, and the less fortunate. Amen
Gospel – Mark 4: The Parable of The Mustard Seed 30 Again he said, “What shall we say the kingdom of God is like, or what parable shall we use to describe it? 31 It is like a mustard seed, which is the smallest of all seeds on earth. 32 Yet when planted, it grows and becomes the largest of all garden plants, with such big branches that the birds can perch in its shade.” 33 With many similar parables Jesus spoke the word to them, as much as they could understand. 34 He did not say anything to them without using a parable. But when he was alone with his own disciples, he explained everything.
Reflection In the parable of the mustard seed, Jesus teaches us the smallest things can make major impacts in our life. The mustard seed is the smallest seed in the world, and it grows to be the largest and great trees. We chose this reading because hope is like a mustard seed, small and feels like nothing, but when taken care of can grow to be something big. For example the hope of getting straight A’s seems like a huge task for a person. When work put in daily, and putting extra time into can make our hope a reality. Bottom line, hope for the best, no matter how hard.
Prayers of The Faithful The response is: For a joyful and hopeful Christmas season. Response. For all those who live in constant terror and war countries. So that we continue to hope and pray that war will be overcome by peace. Response. For all the hopeful students in university who have exams in the near future. We hope and pray so that they may achieve the best marks they deserve. Response. Lord, hear our prayer. For those who don’t have a home, or as much as we do. Who constantly hope for a better day. We pray that they may receive a chance to change their life. Response. For these and all the intentions within our own hearts… Response
Do They Know It’s Christmas It's Christmas time, there's no need to be afraid At Christmas time, we let in light and we banish shade And in our world of plenty we can spread our smile of joy Feel your arms around the world at Christmas time But say a prayer and pray for the other ones At Christmas time its hard but while you’re having fun There’s a world outside your window and it’s a world of dread and fear Where a kiss of love can kill you
Where there’s death in every tear And the Christmas bells that ring there are the clanging chimes of doom Well tonight we’re reaching out and touching you. Bring peace and joy this Christmas to West Africa A song of hope where there’s no hope tonight Why is comfort to be feared, why is to touch to be scared? How can they know it’s Christmas time at all? Here’s to you Raise a glass to everyone Here’s to them And all there is to come Can they know it’s Christmas time at all?
Feed the world Let them know it’s Christmas time again Feed the world Let them know it’s Christmas time again Feed the world Let them know it’s Christmas time again Feed the world Let them know it’s Christmas time again
During the busy Christmas season we lose what the true meaning of Christmas is. This video teaches us, about it. Link :)
Closing Prayer Dear Lord, Thank you for giving us time to come together and reflect over your teachings. Help us to bring hope, an important virtue to life, in our school, home, and parish community. We hope that we are able to spend time with you like this more often. Lets say an Our Father. St. Gertrude pray for us. Amen.
