October 15, 2017 • 28th Sunday in Ordinary TimeLive the GospelObjective The children will be able to identify the Ten Commandments.Activity l The Ten Commandments (page 4)Recall with the children how they found the Isaiah reading in the Old Testament part of the Bible last week. The Ten Commandments are in that part of the Bible also—Deuteronomy 5:6–21 and Exodus 20:2–17. To be a good Jew, a person is expected to keep the Ten Commandments. When we are baptized, we agree to keep the Ten Commandments too.Give the children time to use the code to  ll in the blanks. Answers: 1. heart, 2. name, 3. holy, 4. honor, 5. kill, 6. adultery, 7. steal, 8. lie, 9. take, 10. property. Ask: What do the  rst three commandments tell us to do? Love, honor, and respect God. Ask: What do the rest of the commandments tell us to do? Love and respect other people.Activity l Ways I Am Forgiven Booklet(pages 1–4) Gather in the work area and distribute scissors. Have the children open Good News so pages 1 and 4 are facing up. Instruct the children to cut on the heavy slanted line. Then have them turn over the piece they have cut so the title of the activity “Ways I Am Forgiven” is faceup.Instruct them to make accordion folds. The small illustration at the bottom of “Who Can Belong?” shows what this folding activity will look like. It is not di cult.When all the booklets are ready, read through them page by page. Have the children describe the small illustrations to you. Point out to them what each activity entails. Give the children timeto complete their booklets, then gather as a large group and share answers. Some may wish to keep answers on some pages private or share them just with you. Note that three of the pages review the parts of the Sacrament of Reconciliation and two of them refer to parts of the Mass when we confess our sinfulness and receive forgiveness.Sacrament Symbols: Con rmation = dove; Holy Orders = stole; Eucharist = chalice and host; Baptism = water and shell; Anointing of the Sick = cross on hand; Matrimony = rings and Chi-Rho; Reconciliation = hand on head.Catholic Faith Word l Penance (page 4) Read this de nition together. Make sure the children understand that when we choose to do what is wrong and are sorry, we can ask God to forgive us. Find the word Penance in the booklet. Make sure the children understand the use of Penance in this context.Closing Prayer Have the children gather in a prayer circle. Ask them to think about the people from their families, neighborhood, and class with whom they go to God’s party, the Mass, on Sundays. Have them choose one name they want to say as part of the prayer. Teacher: God says, “Come to my party. Bring a friend.”Child: I will come with ____________.Close your prayer and gathering by playing and singing“Come, Do This in Memory of Me” (CD-1, #20).Remind the children to share their Gospel Weeklies with their families and to do the Family Corner activities and prayer together.Lesson Wrap-UpACTIVITY BOOKIncludes:32 Gospel and Doctrine Activities Early Start and Late Close LessonsVisit to download this week’s lesson review.Use Activity #6 from the Good News Activity Book as a take- home activity or lesson wrap-up.November 12, 201732nd Sunday in Ordinary Time Year AName:Answer the following questions based on the lesson.1.

This week’s lesson about faith leads into a discussion of where Catholics show their faith regularly—at our weekly gathering for the Eucharist.Read the title and the short paragraph together. Point out the First Commandment. It is one of the three that tells us how to honor God. Let the children tell you what they know about the First, Second, and Third Commandments. If they have already received First Communion and First Reconciliation, they will have had some catechesis on the commandments.Ask: What other things do the commandments talk about? Obeying parents, not lying or stealing, not hurting other people. Tell the children that other lessons during the year will talk about these commandments. For now, they know where in the book they can find this list.Have the children close the What the Church Believes and Teaches handbooks and return to Good News, page 4.The NEW Gospel WeekliesPFLAUM GOSPEL WEEKLIES Faith Formation Program
