In April we were asked to reflect on the time when Mary was asked by God to have his son. The Gospel tells us that Mary was worried when the angel spoke to her. The angel tells her God wants her to have his son. Mary shows great courage and says YES to God. Sometimes we are asked to do something difficult, we make excuses rather than try to find the courage to be brave. Salt is not nice to taste on it’s own but makes all the difference when added to food. The children were asked to take a pinch of salt and sprinkle it into the flour asking God to give them courage and confidence they need, just like Mary’s courage to say YES to God. The children took home a Mary card to remind them to have the courage to say YES to God.
