This question was asked of me last Sunday, March 11, 2012, by one of my 5th Grade PRE students: “Why did God The Father send His Son Jesus rather than coming Himself?” I told her that it deserved a better answer than I could give and that I would research it. Well, I have come up empty. I turn to CATHOLIC ANSWERS at this late date, hoping you can give me an answer for her before class this Sunday.
Please help me. These children go to public school and only have one hour of formal religious education a week. I feel a tremendous obligation to give them the best I have within that one hour.
