Jesus has the power to hide Himself under the appearances of bread and wine in the mystery of the Eucharist.
“Knowledge of the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven has been granted to you, but to them it has not been granted.
They look but do not see and hear but do not listen or understand.
But blessed are your eyes, because they see, and your ears, because they hear.
Many prophets and righteous people longed to see what you see but did not see it, and to hear what you hear but did not hear it.”
*Pick a prayer below. Repeat it each time you do another guide until it’s memorized, then move to the next one.
*God wants YOU (especially children) to help save sinners by praying this prayer every day! In the spring of 1916, God sent the Angel of Peace from Heaven to Fatima, Portugal to teach this powerful prayer to the whole world through 3 children – Lucia age 9, Francisco age 7, and Jacinta 6. This prayer repairs damage caused by people’s sins, draws them back to God, and brings peace to the world! God wants YOU to take part in His work to save sinners. He made it so simple that everyone everywhere can pray this prayer frequently! In Heaven, you’ll see how many people you helped save!
*God wants YOU (especially children) to pray this 2nd prayer to help save sinners! In August of 1916, God again sent the Angel of Peace from Heaven to Fatima, Portugal to teach this 2nd prayer to the world through Lucia – now 10, Francisco – now 8, and Jacinta – still 6. This prayer also repairs the damage caused by people’s sins and helps convert poor sinners! God really wants children and adults to join Him in saving others through this prayer.
On July 6, 1973, Our Lady appeared in Akita, Japan and asked that the expression ‘truly present’ be used to emphasize that Jesus is really and truly present in the Eucharist!
*Why memorize & pray this prayer? The more our love for God grows, the happier we will be on earth and in Heaven! Loving God with all our heart is the first and greatest commandment. -Deut 6:5
Share a time when you were startled or surprised by something hidden right before your eyes.
If you have time:
Take a look at this Stereogram which contains a hidden 3D image.
You must have both eyes to see the 3D images.
Instructions (2 different ways to try to see the image):
Come close to the screen so your nose is within 4 inches of it. Stare through the screen rather than trying to focus on the 2-D pattern. Let your eyes go beyond the obvious image, and you will begin to see the hidden image. Slowly pull away your face.
Or, gaze far off like you’re looking to spot a bear on a hillside. Then as the hidden parts of the Stereogram become visible, focus on what you can see, and soon you’ll see the whole picture.
