October 22, 2017 • 29th Sunday in Ordinary TimeSunday Readings: Isaiah 45:1, 4–6;1 Thessalonians 1:1–5; Matthew 22:15–21For Catechists and TeachersScripture BackgroundIn this Sunday’s Gospel, Pharisees plot to get Jesus to take sides in an argument. They oppose paying taxes to the occupying Romans; their opponents, members of Herod’s party, support paying taxes. Jesus challenges his questioners by asking to see the coins they have. The factthat they have Roman coins shows their intent to pay Roman taxes. Jesus gives his questioners and us a principle for making judgments—“Give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar and to God what belongs to God.”This principle allows us to obey both civil and religious laws and calls us to examine where our allegiance lies when the two spheres con ict.Connecting Scripture and DoctrineAre we members of the Church or are we citizens of a country? Of course, we are both, and Catholics are called to live up to the laws of the Church and their country. “It is the duty of citizens to contribute along with the civil authorities to the good of society in a spirit of truth, justice, solidarity, and freedom.” (CCC, 2239, 2255) Note: All numbered citations are from the Catechism of the Catholic Church unless otherwise indicated.Single-Session Lesson Pacing GuidesNote: These pacing guides are suggestions on how to present the lesson.
