This practical resource for young people is intended to help them prepare for Easter in a fresh, enjoyable and meaningful way. Christ's only crown was made of cruel thorns yet it should have been one of precious jewels. 'A Crown for Christ' examines what it was about Jesus that made him a king. As the young people share in the events and feelings experienced by Jesus before his death and resurrection, they focus on the 'jewels' or virtues of goodness revealed by the things he said and did on the way to the cross. Through reflection and prayer, they can learn more about the person of Jesus and understand how they can personally follow him better. This material is flexible enough for it to be used with a broad spectrum of ages within a parish community, schools searching for new ideas, families wanting to add meaning to the events of Holy Week and anyone wanting to approach Easter from a new perspective.
