Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha, rosaries, and CCD

During the CCD class I teach we talked today about saints, and how we implore the saints to pray for us. I talked about the miracle attributed to Archbishop Fulton J Sheen, in which a newborn baby who was born dead, and had been dead for over an hour, was brought back to life after the baby’s family prayed to Fulton J Sheen.

We also talked about the upcoming canonization of Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha. Kateri will be canonized (declared a saint) this coming Sunday, October 21. It is pretty cool that I found an article on it right after talking about Kateri 🙂

We also talked about religious images, and how we do not pray to images, or crucifixes, but rather just look at them to remind us of who they represent.

Lastly, I showed them one of the rosaries that I have made. A couple of the kids thought that was really cool, and I have now promised to show them how to make them next week :). We won’t be able to make a whole rosary during class, but I should be able to show them the basic steps. It should be a lot of fun.

  1. I’m not sure I have the patience to make rosaries with the First communion class I teach. Good for you!

  2. The class I teach is a little bit older, 4th Grade. We’ll see how it goes. Wish me luck 🙂
