September 2009 Essay Contest Winner

September 2009’s winner was Anne Kraft of Webster, a homeschooled seventh-grader. In response to What do you think is one of the most important things Jesus did while on earth and why? she wrote: “I think one of the most important things Jesus did while on earth is his death on the cross and resurrection for our salvation from sin. If that had not happened, we would not have the hope of going to heaven after living a good life on earth. Another important event was the first Eucharist at the Last Supper. By partaking in Communion at Mass, we have a gift to offer back to God and a way of remembering Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross.”
