Wednesday Word

The Wednesday Word aims to help all school families draw closer to God, to the Church and to each other by sharing the Gospel together.

As you know, we send home a hard copy of  The Wednesday Word every week for families to read together and to support children’s understanding of the Gospel. You will already have received  a hard copy of the booklet covering Lent and Easter (available below). The next edition will be published on Wednesday 29th April.

During the period of school closure The Wednesday Word will be available as an online resource and will be saved on this page every Wednesday for you to continue your reflection. You could also try some of the activities on the Wednesday Word Children’s Zone

  1. 09.09.20 I think it shows that you should always forgive everyone. Even if someone does something bad to you.

  2. Miss Jones says:

    Good reflection Raimundo, it is important we can forgive everyone even when it is difficult.

  3. 09.09.20 What Jesus means by his parable is that no matter how much they
    owe you, you should always be able to forgive someone.

  4. Miss Jones says:

    Well done Vincent, you’re right forgiveness is so important.

  5. Vincent (Y5) says:

    What Jesus means by his parable is that no matter how much they owe you, you should always be able to forgive someone.

  6. 16.09.20 Hello Miss Lee
    I think the gospel was about how in heaven everyone is treated fairly.

  7. Miss Jones says:

    Good reflections Nina, it is important for us to try hard to treat everyone fairly.

  8. 16.09.20 I think that Jesus was trying to tell us that you will always be forgiven even if they were mean to you.

  9. Miss Jones says:

    Well done Ella, it is important for us to forgive others even when it is hard.

  10. 16.09.20 What Jesus was trying to tell Peter was that you must always forgive someone even if they’ve done something unforgettable .

  11. Miss Jones says:

    Good reflections Emilie, that’s right and we must remember the many stories in the bible where Jesus forgives others.

  12. 16.09.20 I think it’s trying to tell that you have to be generous to everyone. No matter what!

  13. Miss Jones says:

    Thoughtful reflections Raimundo. Being generous can really make a difference!

  14. 23.09.20 I think it shows that some people are right when you think they are wrong so sometimes you can believe them and make them happy.

  15. Miss Jones says:

    Good effort Raimundo, it is important not to judge and to listen to what someone has to say.

  16. (*Year 5 *)*****Nina & Ella***** says:

    Hello this is what we thought of the Wednesday Word 23.09.20.

    We think that Jesus is trying to tell you that if you have done something wrong you can always change no matter what. You can always have a change of heart because no matter how many times you have to start again God will always support your decision.

    Nina & Ella

  17. Miss Jones says:

    Thoughtful reflections Nina and Ella. You’re right, we can make mistakes but God will always forgive us and help us when we try to change.

  18. 23.09.20
    I think it is important to tell the truth but most importantly to if you think of doing something wrong, you should change your desigion to a right thing that you think God would appreciate.
    Choices are the furtur of your life. They will make things happen the way you chose to make them happen.

  19. Miss Jones says:

    You have reflected well on the Wednesday Word Stella. I agree with you, we all have choices and it is important to try hard to make the right choices to make God happy.

  20. 16.09.20 It is very important to be generous because it is one of the elements you should have to follow God’s way.Being generous is performed as a daily act for most of the people.
    For example all the teachers are generous with their time. They give their time to us by teaching us. When someone is generous you have to be grateful to that person. I suggest we should listen carefully to all teachers. Our parents are also really generous with us too. And lastly, Jesus, God our Father, the Saints and everybody else living on planet earth because we are all a family we are generous by sharing our love to each one of them standing on earth.

    In the scripture I think that by saying, “Thus the last may be first, and the first may be last.” he means that you should love EVERYBODY no matter what.

  21. Miss Jones says:

    Wow Stella, I can see you have really thought carefully about your reflections on this weeks Word. You have written some thoughtful words and excellent advice for others. Well done for linking your ideas to the scripture too!

  22. 09.09.20
    Forgiveness is really important. Even though sometimes it is hard to forgive each other you should always try to forgive them if they’re truly sorry; for example when Jesus died on the cross he said these very words, “Father, forgive them. They do not know what they have done.” I think this is a very good example to show forgiveness, even though we will never be able to do such a miracle act like Jesus we can always continue tour journey, following Gods footsteps.

    In the scripture the king was very forgiving to the poor servant who could not pay his debt, however the servant couldn’t be trusted as he treated others unfairly. I think the servant should have followed the kings example which would have made God happy. I think Jesus is trying to show to Peter that you should forgive anybody no matter what.

  23. Miss Jones says:

    Another thoughtful reflection Stella, well done. I agree with your words about trying hard to follow in God’s footsteps by forgiving others.

  24. Wednesday Word 23 September 2020
    Many things have changed in the past few months. A positive change is that I have been reading more, and this made me proud. I made some very special puddings for my family, and this makes all of us happy. Good changes in complicated times can be very rewarding.

  25. Miss Jones says:

    Thoughtful words Paolo! It is good to recognise that some changes can be positive. It is lovely to hear you are proud of your reading and you have been kind to your family by making them special puddings.

  26. 23.09.20

    You should never judge people or rely on certain people as the ones you least expect can be the ones who work the hardest.

  27. Miss Jones says:

    Great reflection Albert, it is so important not to judge.

  28. Mayowa (^_^) says:

    23.09.2020

    I think the Gospel is telling us that we should do as we say because if you told the person you would do it and then didn’t, the person would be disappointed.

  29. Miss Jones says:

    Well done Mayowa, I agree with your reflection. It is important we stick to our word so that we don’t let others down.

  30. 23.09.20

    I think the gospel means that if somebody asks you to do something you should listen to them and try to make them happy because if you wouldn’t the person who asked you to do something would be angry of disappointed.

  31. Miss Jones says:

    Good reflection Julia, it is important we can be there for others and listen to them and show our support.

  32. Mayowa ( •̥́ ˍ •̀) says:

    04.10.2020
    I think that the Gospel is telling us that we shouldn’t be cruel and we should always be honest.

  33. Miss Jones says:

    Great Mayowa, you have shared some really important advice.

  34. 30.09.20

    Be nice if you want someone to be nice back.

  35. Miss Jones says:

    Well done Holly, kindness is free!

  36. 30.09.20 We must never ignore messengers of God and remember that we can be messengers as well by giving good word of love, peace and goodwill to others.

  37. Miss Jones says:

    A thoughtful reflection of the Word Chloe H, you’re right, we can all be thoughtful messengers and spread goodness all around.

  38. Hello,
    I think we must always be honest and make the right choices.
    I think the farmers should have gave the fruit to those servants. If they did not do the right choice the first time, then this time he could do the choice that God would like us to do.

  39. Miss Jones says:

    Well done Stella, it is important we make the right choices and think carefully about what God would like us to do.

  40. 07.10.2020

    I think the Gospel is telling us to accept what we are given and be nice to the people who are sending you the invite.Tthe people who seized the servants did not accept the invite and were mean to the people giving them the invite.

  41. Miss Jones says:

    Great reflection Holly, it is important we can accept things from others no matter how big or small.

  42. 10.10.20

    I think that Jesus means that we should invite anyone and accept invitations to you.

  43. Miss Jones says:

    Well done Vincent, it is important to be welcoming and inviting to others.

  44. 07.10.20

    I think it is telling us to thank people who do something for you and not ignore what they did.

  45. Miss Jones says:

    Good reflection Samuel, I think it is important to show our thanks too.

  46. I think that it is important to show kindness and invite any. As the king did, he invited poor and rich, kind looking and bad looking.
    Even though you may not invite strangers you can still hold your open heart and invite God so that everyone could in some way be with you.

    You must always, no matter what, invite all your family ( the whole world) to your heart. You can do this by showing love and kindness to everyone you see.

  47. Miss Jones says:

    Great reflections Stella, I agree with what you said about holding your heart open and inviting God in to allow others to be with you – thoughtful words.

  48. Laura year 2 says:

    07.10.2020
    We should invite Jesus to our lives and follow his way.

  49. Miss Jones says:

    Well done Laura, it is important we can do this.

  50. Mayowa 😇 says:

    I think the gospel is tell us to invite and welcome others even if they are different.

  51. Miss Jones says:

    Good effort Mayowa, we should welcome everyone.

  52. OLIVIA YEAR 6 says:

    07.10.20
    We should invite Jesus to our lives and follow his way.
    We should also welcome others even if they are different.

  53. Miss Jones says:

    Well done Olivia, welcoming others is an act of kindness.

  54. I think that Jesus wants us to know that even if we have been mean to someone or done something wrong, we will always be forgiven for what we have done

  55. Miss Jones says:

    Good reflection Ava, I agree with what you said. Jesus will always forgive us.

  56. This week’s Gospel is all about showing gratitude for the things that we have. Coronavirus has been a very worrying time and I am very grateful that all of my family have managed to stay safe and well.

  57. Miss Jones says:

    Well done Regan, you have thought carefully about your reflection. You’re right, it has been a worrying time, it has definitely been a time to be thankful for our health and the things we have.

  58. To show our gratitude we must remember to say thank you to people. It shows that we care and that we are grateful and that we appreciate kind deeds.
    Year 6 showed their gratitude by making a lovely thank you card for my grandma who filmed a little video about her experiences during World War II and I know that she will be really pleased to receive it.

  59. Miss Jones says:

    Thoughtful reflections Erin. That was a lovely way for Year 6 to show their gratitude to your grandma!

  60. Whenever I receive presents for my birthday, my mum always makes me write thank you cards to show my gratitude. My great aunties who are quite old really enjoy receiving these cards as I don’t get to see them very often.
    Orla

  61. Miss Jones says:

    This is a lovely way to show gratitude Orla, it can make others happy!

  62. Diana Y6 :) says:

    To show our gratitude we must always be kind, say thank you and be respectful. When somebody does us a favour or helps us we must say thank you to show we appreciate it.

  63. Miss Jones says:

    Well done Diana, you’re right it is important to show our appreciation by saying thank you.

  64. 14/10/2020

    I believe that this week’s gospel is advising us to be thankful for what we have as we are fortunate enough, in this pandemic, that London is not as hard as other places in the world and we should all be grateful that we get to go to school, as some other children do not.

  65. Miss Jones says:

    A thoughtful reflection Gabriella, it is important we can appreciate the things we have, especially in this difficult time.

  66. I think that Jesus means that we should show God the kindness he shows us.

  67. Miss Jones says:

    I agree with you Vincent, God shows us lots of kindness.

  68. 14/10/2020

    I believe that this gospel is all about how God plans what happens in the future and he knew that the followers where trying to trick Jesus, I think that God said to Jesus that some of the followers where trying to trick him so he had a a warning in advanced.

  69. Miss Jones says:

    A good reflection Elena, God is always our protector.

  70. In the Wednesday word I think what Jesus says means:

    If we love God he will help guide us and teach us to spread the news to others, and even if they don’t listen you should love them because God is with you on that same path all the time.

  71. Miss Jones says:

    Well done Claudia, you have thought carefully about your reflection on the Word. God will definitely help and guide us on our path.

  72. 07.10.20
    This means that only certain people are the chosen ones. In this gospel it means that only the pure and kind can go to heaven. The violent and mean will refuse this calling and not worship God. If you want to go to heaven you have to have a proper “suit” which in this parable is compassion and love. I found this parable very interesting and didn’t understand it at first.
    Have a good evening! Jeanne

  73. Miss Jones says:

    A great response Jeanne, it is a tricky parable you’re right, but you have thought carefully about your ideas, well done.

  74. SARA😎😁 says:

    Hi.
    In this weeks Gospel, it says that Jesus called people to tell people that the feast was ready and to tell the king. They told the king but the king wasn’t happy so he sent his servants to tell the people on the streets that the wedding was ready but that the people who got an invite were not worthy so everyone came to the wedding.

  75. Miss Jones says:

    Well done Sara, what do you think the message of this gospel shows us?

  76. Mayowa ( •̥́ ˍ •̀ू ) says:

    I think the Gospel is telling us to not trick others and not take whats not yours.

  77. Miss Jones says:

    A good reflection Mayowa, well done.

  78. I think it is important to show gratitude so that others feel happy . In my past life I have shown gratitude by saying thank you. This shows love towards others and others know you as a polite person.

  79. We can show our gratitude to God by showing love and kindness to others and by praying to God.

  80. SARA😎😁 says:

    Hi.
    I think this message shows us that even if you get like a special invite to like a friends party doesn’t mean you deserve it, and that you are worthy of the invite.

    04/10/20
    In this weeks gospel there was a landowner who owned a vineyard and when the fruit-season came he told his servants to go and get the fruits but the farmers seized them then the son came and said
    to respect his son. I am not sure what this means.
