Frighteningly Beautiful

On Saturday during our Celebration of the Liturgy of the Light, we read the gospel story of the Women at the Tomb. I asked the children how the women had reacted (afraid but also full of joy) and asked them if this reminded them of other stories from the Bible. Niamh, in second grade, suggested the Parable of the Pearl, because the merchant felt happy about finding the pearl, but perhaps was frightened by how beautiful and precious it was.
