Lent 1A - Art and Faith

During Lent we will share videos from the Loyola Art and Faith series ... these provide an opportunity to reflect on the Gospel reading using the medium of art.

For parents, you may want to turn off the audio and talk to your child about the images you see.  Explain this is when Jesus went to prepare for what he had to do, his mission. Lent is a time we prepare, perhaps talk to them about what you are all doing as a family. 
  • How do you think Jesus feels?
  • Get them to describe what they see ... the sky, the rocks, Jesus' hands in prayer.
  • Why do we join our hands in prayer?
