    • Hi Elly ,
      You are a great writer when it comes to,”I wonder questions”. You have your imagination flow with these “I wonder questions”.

      Yes at Communion we are remembering Jesus at the Last Supper which was his Passover meal.

      Why do we have reconciliation in Year Three? That is a decision at each Parish. At some Parishes the children participate in their first Reconciliation and Eucharist in Grade Four. Here at our Parish we participate in the important sacraments in Grade three.

      People have been working on restoring this beautiful painting, but you have to be very careful as it is an important and magnificent piece of history.

      Perhaps one day you will visit the Church to view it in reality.

      Mrs Boyhan 🙂

    • Fantastic thinking Edwina.

      It is exciting that we belong to family of God and that there are many people who celebrate with us.

      I too wonder what Jesus would say to us and our leaders about different issues in our world today like helping refugees and world poverty.

      Mrs Boyhan 🙂

    • Dear Edwina
      We like the way you used a compass point thinking routine instead of I wonder questions. Your comment was very informative. We did not know it was painted on a wall. Did you know that it was painted by Leonardo Da Vinci?
      From your good friends, Sally and Bethany

  13. W=I wonder why Da Vinci painted it straight on the stone?
    I wonder why we take communion?

    N=I now know Da Vinci didn’t put any one on the other side of the table because that’s where we go. I now know when we take communion we are remembering the last supper.

    S=I think the painting would look better on a piece of canvas. I think communion is great just the way it is.

    E=This painting excites me because it’s so interesting to look at. Communion excites me because we are remembering the last supper. I feel like I am part of communion more when I take bread.

    2. I like the painting because there are lots of expressions.
    What excites me:
    1. How the stain glass windows light up when the sun hits the glass.

    • Thank you for visualising your thinking Alice. Great communication.

      One of the ways that we refer to Jesus is as the ‘Lamb of God’. That is why on some hosts there is an imprint of a lamb. We are remembering Jesus.

      I too love how the stain glass windows in our church light up when the sun hits them. I visited a beautiful chapel in Paris called Sainte Chappelle it has the most magnificent stain glass windows I have ever seen. Perhaps one day you might visit them as well.

      Mrs Boyhan 🙂

      It is important to share our stories and remember important moments in our faith and yes we remember the Last Supper during the Liturgy of the Eucharist.

      It was quite common back when DaVinci was alive to paint straight onto the wall. Sort of like an ancient wallpaper!

      Mrs Boyhan 🙂

      In our relationships with others we do become closer by talking to them and sharing and one way we do this with God is through prayer.

    • Great thinking Anthony.

      DaVinci painted his painting with Jesus and the disciples facing the viewer (us)because then we too are called to the table with Jesus.

      Just like we are at Communion – called to the table in communion with Jesus.

      Mrs Boyhan 🙂

      From Alessia.B.3/4LP

    • Hi Samantha,
      Your wondering about why the disciples are sitting on one side of the table is quite interesting to us as well.Perhaps that is the way Leonardo Di Vinci decided to paint the picture so that all the disciples’ faces are shown.

      From Olivia and Robbie 3/4A and 3/4T

    • Hello Samantha,
      The question about the disciples is an interesting one.We think it is because it is a biblical word for friends and followers.

    Why did DaVinci paint on the wall.

    I now know
    That when we have the bread and wine we remember Jesus.
