Weekly Assembly

Week 6

30 November - 4 December 2020

Welcome

The SLT or any educator who is conducting the assembly will address the students positively saying good morning to all. One can start this assembly with the sign of the cross: "In the name of the Father, and of the son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen"


Introduction

Usually we see a video clip and we share some thoughts after but today I am trusting that this video will speak to your minds and hearts. Advent is the time when we become aware of God’s love and respect towards humanity. Depending on your audience you can add the following: He became one of us in the birth of Jesus Christ.

Advent Week 2: Love

Prayer

Dear God, we thank you for this day, no words can be enough to show our gratitude towards the respect and the unconditional love you have for us. Help us to respect each other and share your love with everyone.


Optional


The reflective words of the video can be delivered as a bookmark:

Preparing for the coming savior

God why do you love us?

Have you looked down here lately?

Have you seen the mess we have made of the gifts you gave us?

We are like bad children who break their toys and demand more and still you love us.

You say do not touch the stove and then we scream for you when we get burnt and still, still you love us.

You do not turn your backs on us even when we turn our backs on each other.

Where does this love come from?

Where can we learn to love like this?

Anger is easy but Love?

Fear, frustration, suffering we’ve got these but Love, Your kind of Love, how is that possible?

We see the places that are empty, we see the places where love can make a difference.

Is that what you saw God?

Is that what you see now?

Is that why you sent your son?

The candle of Love. This light shows us where to give love.

Shows us the empty spaces in the world and in each other. When we share love, we are sharing God.
