Session 3: The Word of God

Focus

1.
Two of the ways God reveals his amazing plan for our lives are through the Bible and Mass on Sunday.

2.
Jesus is the greatest teacher who ever lived.

3.
We gather at church with our family, friends, and our parish family to worship God in the way that Jesus taught us to.

Act

The Creed is a summary of what we believe as Catholics. You can find the Nicene Creed on pages 96 and 97 of the workbook. Take a few minutes to read it slowly and deliberately. Stop after every line and ask yourself, “Do I believe this is true?” If you have doubts or questions, don’t get discouraged. Recognize them as opportunities to study our great faith. Explore those doubts and questions vigorously, one at a time.

Examine why the Church teaches what she teaches in each instance, and allow your questions and doubts to strengthen your faith rather than diminish it. Then share what you learn with your child.

Pray

Lord, teach me to be generous. Teach me to serve you as you deserve; to give and not to count the cost, to fight and not to heed the wounds, to toil and not to seek for rest, to labor and not ask for rewards, save that of knowing that I do your will.

Amen
