Why did Jesus speak in Parables?

 The power of story-telling in evangelization


In this Sunday’s Gospel Reading at Mass, Jesus shared three parables: the lost sheep, the lost coin and the prodigal son. Most of us are familiar with these stories without even needing to read them again. Why did Jesus use so many parables in His teachings?


I can think of a few reasons:

  • Stories are easy to remember.
  • Stories are universal and non-threatening.
  • Stories are relatable and provide context to a message.
  • Stories allow one to discover the message by oneself.
  • Stories may be retold in many ways while preserving the message.

These are just a few good reasons to use parables, stories and testimonies in our evangelization efforts. They are especially great for children!


Here is a fun resource to tell Jesus’ parables to kids with multiple printable template. It is great for Homeschooling, Sunday Schools and Children’s Liturgy:

This month marks the 12th year since the Happy Saints project started. The first blog post appeared in August, 2010. Happy Saints began as a side project to create contemporary illustrations of Patron Saints that appeal to the digital generation.

I want to thank everyone for your support, prayers and patronage without which Happy Saints would not sustained for so long. I ask God to bless all of you and may His Light guide you through these turbulent times to emerge stronger in faith and hope.

As we move forward, I ask for your continued prayers and support to keep the Happy Saints going and inspire more young people to learn about the treasures of our Faith.
