***CALM BRAIN ACCESS AT HOME***

We have just heard from Calm Brain about support for parents and carers at this time.  Please see the message below:

We are therefore going to offer free access to CalmBrain for all parents, giving them unlimited access to the Jukebox for the duration of the school closure.  All we need is the name and email address of the parent, and the school that their child attends.

We would be very grateful if you could help us by emailing all your parents and telling them that all they need to do to get access is email us at calmbrainsupport@calmbrainapproach.com giving the following information:

  • Their first and last name (i.e. the name of the parent; we do not need the name of the child)
  • The parent’s email address
  • The name of the school their child attends

This will provide children and their parents with access to over 100 CalmBrain movements in the Jukebox based on Positive Emotions and CalmBrain Phases.

We hope that this is of help, and that you all stay safe and healthy in the months ahead.

I really hope that you find this helpful and take up this offer whilst you are at home.

Kind regards

Stations of the Cross

Station 14: Jesus is Laid in the Tomb

People had returned to their homes for the Sabbath.
John, Joseph of Arimathea, Nicodemus, and Mary, went from Calvary to Jesus’ burial tomb.
Joseph and John carried Jesus into the tomb.
They laid him on the rock bench in the burial chamber.
The men moved a big boulder in front of the entrance to block it.

Prayer:
Dear Jesus, Help me to carry on Your work.
Mary, help me to see Jesus in all things.
Almighty Father, Thank you for sending Jesus. Help me to be like Jesus. Help me to share my life and love more fully. This I ask through Christ Our Lord. Amen
Hymn: O Lord Hear Our Prayer

Final prayer:

We have walked the Way of the Cross with Jesus.
During the remaining days of Lent and during this week,
Let us stay close to Jesus.
Let us be with him in his suffering and death,
So that we can celebrate his resurrection
in joy at Easter.
Amen.

Stations of the Cross

Station 13: Jesus is Taken Down from The Cross

Sabbath was rapidly approaching and the crucified ones had to be taken down before the beginning of the Sabbath celebrations.
A soldier pierced the side of Jesus with his spear to be sure that he was dead.
The crowd hurried to their homes before the beginning of Sabbath or they’d be excluded from the celebration.
Mary stayed under the cross with her Son.
Two men came to the soldiers with orders from Pilate, Joseph of Arimathea, and Nicodemus. Joseph had offered his burial tomb for Jesus.
Jesus was gently removed from the cross.
Mary held Jesus.
She didn’t want to give Him up but she had to.
She kissed Him and gave Him to the guards.

Prayer:
Dear Jesus, how bad was your death but how gently you were removed from the cross. Help me to treat others kindly always.
Mary, help me to see Jesus in all things.
Almighty Father, Help me to be a kinder, gentler person. Help me to always see the good in others. This I ask through Christ Our Lord. Amen

Stations of the Cross

Station 12: Jesus Dies on the Cross

As Pilate had ordered, a soldier placed, above Jesus’ head, a notice reading ‘Jesus of
Nazareth, King of the Jews” (John 19:20)

The cross was hoisted into place.

Mary and John, stayed at the foot of the cross and prayed.

Jesus looked down and said to his mother “Dear woman, here is your son”(John 19:26) and to John “Here is your mother” (John 19:27)

Even at this terrible time, he was taking care of his mother.

The sky was dark.

Jesus said “I am thirsty”. (John 19:28) A soldier offered him wine mixed with vinegar.

The two thieves that were crucified beside Him, talked to Him.
Looking at one of them he said, “I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise.” (Luke 23:43).
Jesus said, “EIi, Ebi, lama sabachthani? – My God, my God, why have you
forsaken me?” (Matthew 27:46)

Then he said “Father, into your hands I commend my spirit (Luke 23:46)

A few moments later He said, “It is finished”
He died.

At that instant, the earth shook, rocks split, the curtain in the temple ripped from top to bottom. The centurion guarding Jesus saw the earth quake and said “Surely he was the Son of God” (Matthew 27:54).

Jesus died at 3 p.m. on the Cross at Calvary.

Prayer:

Dear Jesus, death is hard for us to understand. Remind us always that faith will carry us through our losses.  Mary, help me to see Jesus in all things.  Almighty Father, Help me to understand Jesus’ death. Help me to understand the love Jesus has for me.  This I ask through Christ Our Lord. Amen
