Every week, Miss Heidi (Heidi Witte) presents a short video reflection on the Sunday Gospel. Seeds and Promise (and some Good News) catechists and teachers may wish to enhance their class sessions by sharing Miss Heidi’s reflection following the proclamation of the Sunday Gospel.
Saint in the Spotlight
Following the Gospel Reflection, Miss Heidi puts a saint “in the spotlight” and shares about that saint, using language and examples that young children can understand and relate to.
Following the Saint in the Spotlight, Miss Heidi offers a short closing prayer. Note that this feature is targeted for parishes that use the Gospel Weeklies or Children Celebrate! for Children’s Liturgy of the Word during Sunday Mass. Those using the Gospel Weeklies in a classroom setting may come back to this closing prayer at the end of their class session if the prayer fits with the theme of their lesson.
Here is a sample video. The instructions on how to access the weekly videos can be found in the current issue of Children Celebrate!
