Focus on Faith Formation

In this weeks Gospel, Jesus says, Take care to guard against greed, for though one may be
rich, ones life does not consist of possessions. Most of us in this community are fortunate

enough to have all that we need and many of us have more than what we need. Jesuss

message makes us realize that we are not what we own, and we shouldnt be focusing on

what we have and comparing ourselves to our neighbors. It is important for us to relay the

message to our children that even though we are so fortunate to live in Mountainside and live

comfortable lives, we need to think about those who are less fortunate than ourselves and

what can we do for those in need.


A simple lesson is to have children go through their toys and clothes and pick out a few items

they dont use or dont wear anymore and begin filling a bag. Once the bag is full, bring your

child with you to the Catholic Charities bin in the church parking lot and have your child help

you put the bag down the chute of the bin. Explain to him or her how another child will be so

happy to have a new toy or a new pair of pajamas.

Teaching children of all ages about charity.
