  Catholic Faith Word l Disciple (page 5) Read the definition aloud. Tell the young people that they are going to learn more about the first woman who answered Jesus’ call to discipleship.
Our Catholic Faith l Peter’s Mother-in-Law Serves Jesus (pages 5) Call on different volunteers to read this feature. Afterward, have them tell the story of Peter’s mother-in-law from her point of view. Let them act this out or use other dramatic techniques to present the story.
Distribute the 2" x 3" pieces of card stock. Have the teens answer the second question on the bottom of page 5 by designing a business card for themselves that says that they are serving
the community in some way. Share and post the cards in the classroom.
Live the Gospel
Objectives l The young people will:
l Practice resolving typical school conflicts. l Explore five opportunities to pray.
Living the Gospel l How Do We Resolve Conflict? (pages 6-7) Break the class into groups of three or four. Read the introduction and directions aloud. Discuss the six options on the chart so everyone has the same understanding of each of them. Read aloud and follow the directions on page 6.
Closing Prayer l Prayer Starters for Every Day (page 8) Read the opening text aloud. Lead the group in the guided Gospel meditation. Use the art to help set the mood of prayer, have the young people close their eyes, and read the meditation aloud slowly to them. If the group likes this experience, try it again with another Gospel.
Explain that each suggestion can help the students connect with God through prayer. Encourage the students to try a different kind of prayer each day or week. Explain that the “best” prayer is the one that helps them as individuals communicate with God. Emphasize that these prayers occur as part of everyday life—walking outside, sitting quietly.
Remind the young people to share their Gospel Weeklies with their families and to do the With My Family and Friends activities and prayer together.

Sacred Art
The Anointing of the Sick provides special grace for those experiencing a grave illness or old age. We can receive this sacrament whenever we are in danger of death, when we develop a new serious illness, or when an existing illness worsens.
In the space
Activity 19
  below, draw someone receiving the Anointing of the Sick. Include something in your scene that shows your understanding of one of the spiritual effects of the sacrament. (You can find these listed on page 25 of your Catechism handbook.) Make sure your art respects this moment as a serious time in a person’s life.

Unit 3: Jesus Calls Us to Follow Him l TG3-15
Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick
Review the meaning of the word disciple, the Visions student lesson, page 5. Make a list of Jesus’ disciples the young people have met in the Gospels of Ordinary Time. Andrew, Peter, James, John, Peter’s mother-in-law.
Explain that Jesus’ first disciples become the eyewitnesses of all Jesus’ teaches and does. After Jesus’ Resurrection from the dead, the eyewitnesses become Apostles. The word Apostle means one who is sent. An Apostle is one sent to proclaim and spread Jesus’ Good News—his teaching, his healing actions, his love for us unto death, his Resurrection. Jesus chooses Twelve Apostles to go out to all people.
Read aloud the first paragraph in section 3 on page 7 of What the Church Believes and Teaches. Link the meaning of apostolic, page 13, with the handing down of Tradition from the Apostles.
Have the young people close their What the Church Believes and Teaches handbooks and return to Visions, page 5.
