They also learned about the vision of Jesus' Divine Mercy and His order to her to have the image created with the words, Jesus I Trust In You.
The girls then thought of a few ways God shows us mercy. We briefly discussed the sacrament of confession - mercy. The girls also brainstormed ways in which they can show mercy to others.
Handprint Lily Pens. The Lily was the flower chosen to represent mercy.
Father L visited the girls during their craft. The girls did an excellent job greeting Father. He spoke of St. Therese when she was three. He said it was the first story he had ever heard of the Little Flower. The story showed St. Therese's vow to obedience. He also gave the girls a special blessing for the feast day of their patron saint. Praise be to God for Priests.
Their first assignment is included in their binder. Girls who have completed any or all assignments will be rewarded with a trip to the Little Flowers box. This box includes goodies such as lunchboxes, folders, snacks, stamps, holy cards and etc...
In addition to the assignments, the girls received coloring and activity pages related to St. Faustina.
