Jesus says Heaven is like a rare pearl and so precious we would want to give up everything to have it! This parable also helps us realize that to God, we are that pearl. Jesus gave up his very life because he thinks we are precious too.

Our world continues to experience unrest fueled by social injustice, hatred, and prejudice. We should remember that every person, no matter their skin color, religion, sex, or social status, is precious to Jesus. Let us keep in mind that our Lord and Savior considers each and every one of us as PRICELESS.

Please share this Sunday’s Family Corner activities and prayer with families to help them to keep reflecting on the Sunday Gospel during these summer months.
