Gospel Reading: Matthew 21:33-43
“Jesus said to them, ‘Did you never read in the scriptures: ‘The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone; by the Lord has this been done, and it is wonderful in our eyes’?’”
Jesus is often a sign of contradiction (see Luke 2:34). In Catholic schools, we have the opportunity to indicate to our students that he is a source of unity, as we remain united in our mission to share the Gospel with the wider culture.
What are some ways we can invite our students to consider how the Good News fits into all of their courses, especially beyond religion/theology class?
