What does that mean Cloë? Actually it sounds kind of boring.
Not at all Tallulah. You know how exciting it is to go on a holiday!
Like when we go to our Granny's cottage?
Exactly. But as much fun as we have there, it's still nice to come home and to get back into our regular routine. Well the seasons of Advent and Christmas are like the holiday. Ordinary Time is the coming home.
So what do we learn during Ordinary Time?
We learn all about Jesus and his life here on earth.
The stories help us to know him better and to remind us that He is not just a made up character, like Little Red Riding Hood or Hansel and Gretel.
He lived and He still lives and He wants to be our friend.
He is definitely my friend Cloë!
He is my friend too Tallulah. And the way that you grow a friendship is to learn about each other, which is what the Gospels help us to do each Sunday.
In today's Gospel John the Baptist introduces his friends to Jesus.
John had told his friends about Jesus and many of them were very excited to meet him in person.
Hey we are kind of like John the Baptist because Jesus is our friend and we love to tell others about Jesus in the hopes that they too will want to be his friend.
You got it Tallulah!

Why not draw a picture of you and Jesus together. Or you can colour this picture.
