Introduction

As you are aware, we said goodbye to the year 2020 and we just started to say hello to this new year 2021. Time passes by but leaves us with memories. Would not be nice to share nice memories when this new year comes to an end. This video we are going to watch will show us how we can make special memories together along the coming year.

Global neighbours: a prayer for children | CAFOD

Ask kids to stop for a few seconds and think about what they saw.

Reflective Thought

Seeing all nations united would be an awesome memory for sure. What a better world, better country and better school we will have if all Maltese, Italian, Russians... (mention examples of nationalities who are present in your school) had to always treat each other with respect. However, to achieve this dream we all need to do our share. We need to try hard to build trust among all humans. We need to try our best to treat all humans of all nationalities with dignity and respect.

This week Christians celebrated the feast of the 3 kings who travelled to reach their dream. Mary and Joseph welcomed them even though these 3 kings came from different nations. Like Mary and Joseph, we are to welcome and treat everyone with respect. However, respect must come from everyone and so like the three Kings we too are invited to respect those who will welcome us with dignity in their own countries and lives. This is how we can make nice memories together.


Prayer

Dear God we thank you for the gift of a brand-new day and a brand-new year never lived before. We pray that you will speak to our hearts and help us see that we are one big family. Help us not to judge or discriminate so that we can truly show respect to all peoples of nations in our everyday lives and actions.
