Today we answer a question from 5 year old, Nate, who asks: "Why is there not a picture of God, if He is the main character at St. Columba (Fr. Connolly's parish), in the pictures in the stained glass?" So we discuss how we don't know what God the Father, the first person of the Holy Trinity, looks like, but that we do see Jesus, the second person of the Holy Trinity, represented in the stained glass and other artwork. And we talk about how we see Jesus present in the Eucharist also.
A question from Alexandra's son, John, age 8. He is curious about St. Thomas the Apostle. Why didn't he believe it when the other Apostles told him that Jesus had risen from the dead? This question led us to a discussion about the gift of faith. Also, we introduced the idea of leading Lectio Divina for our listeners for the whole family to listen to together. Coming in our next episode, so stay tuned. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app
We are joined today by a special guest, Patrick Sullivan (no relation to Alexandra), who runs a couple Catholic ministries, Evango and Me & My House. As a parent of 9, we thought he'd be a great help in answering today's question. How do we help our kids develop their own prayer life, rather than prayer being another thing that parents put on their "to do" list?
