October 1, 2017 • 26th Sunday in Ordinary TimeSunday Readings: Ezekiel 18:25–28; Philippians 2:1–11; Matthew 21:28–32For Catechists and TeachersScripture BackgroundJesus is teaching daily in the Temple, often in parables, and confronting scribes, Pharisees, Temple priests, and elders. Jesus’ parables invite his opponents to judge themselves; they invite us to do the same. In Sunday’s parable, a father asks his two sons to work in his vineyard. The first son refuses to help, but then changes his mind and does. The second son agrees to help but doesn’t follow through.Visions encourages teens to follow the example of the first son who is willing to re-evaluate his choices, to change, and then to live out his new decision.Connecting Scripture and Doctrine“At the heart of catechesis we find ...the Person of Jesus of Nazareth, the only Son from the Father...who suffered and died for us and who now, after rising, is living with us forever”... [To catechize is] “to reveal in the Person of Christ the whole of God’s eternal design reaching fulfillment in that Person. It is to seek to understand the meaning of Christ’s actions and words and of the signs worked by him” (CCC, 426). 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 for how to present the lesson.
