3rd Sunday of Lent
Share Experiences
Objectives l The young people will:
l Discover how the Commandments help us live as God’s
kingdom people.
l Identify valuable ways to use feelings of anger.
Gather in a prayer circle. Play and sing “We Will Walk With God” (CD-2, #8). Lyrics are available at gospelweeklies. com/lyrics.
Gathering Prayer Gather in a circle, have the young people close their eyes, and concentrate on breathing in space for God and exhaling worry. Leader: Loving God, help clear our minds and hearts of anything that prevents us from being close to you. All: Amen.
Cover Activity l How Do We Live the Ten Commandments? (page 1) Read aloud the title and directions, upper left. Have your young people works in pairs, read the Commandments and ways to live them, and then match the letters and numbers. Help as needed. The students can also refer to pages 32–34 in their What the Church Believes and Teaches handbooks. Check responses. Answers: 1. H; 2. G; 3. A; 4. J; 5. E; 6. C; 7. D; 8. I; 9. F; 10. B.
Story l Dividing the Property (pages 2-3) Have the young people speculate about what the photo and title suggest the story is about. Have volunteers take turns reading the story aloud.
Discuss the Talk questions on page 3. Answers: 1.Tyler’s parents tell him that their marriage has failed, and they decided to divorce while they can remain friends.
2. Splitting up Sherlock and Holmes makes the reality of the divorce hit Tyler. His anger turns to tears and upset. 3. Tyler feels that Sherlock and Holmes should stay together, even if his parents live in separate houses. 4. Tyler’s parents think he is okay with the divorce, because of his “smiling silence.” Tyler’s anger leads to his parents talking more with him. 5. Continue to talk about changes in their family and Tyler’s feelings. He may be okay with the divorce sometimes, upset at other times. Spend time with Tyler. Show Tyler love and respect by including him in discussions that affect him.
Discover Gospel and Doctrine
Objectives l The young people will:
l Appreciate that they are temples of God.
l Identify effects of keeping and breaking the
l Review the Ten Commandments.
Gospel Ritual Gather in the space you have set up for the Gospel reading. As you prepare the young people to listen and read this Sunday’s Gospel, play “Lenten Gospel Acclamation” (CD-1, #2).
Sunday Gospel l Jesus Cleanses the Temple (page 4) Have six young people take the parts of Narrator, Sheep Seller, Merchant, Second Merchant, Money Changer, and Jesus, and proclaim the Gospel. Invite your class to dramatize the Gospel. Set up your classroom like the market in the Temple courtyard. Use desks as booths and make signs advertising the products for sale.
Discuss the Talk questions on page 4. Answers:
1. Lambs and doves were used for sacrifice; however, the business of buying and selling them obscures the purpose
of the Temple—prayer and praise of God. 2. Jesus is extremely angry that the money changers and merchants show little respect for his Father’s house. 3. Open-ended. 4. The Gospel refers to Psalm 69:10, in which the psalmist declares passionate commitment to God. Jesus wants the Temple kept sacred for prayer. He shows his total commitment to God through his actions and words in the courtyard. 5. Jesus is talking about his own body, his death and Resurrection. 6. We Christians are!
Connecting Gospel and Doctrine l Jesus’ Power Is Love (page 4) Ask the young people whether it’s strange to them to see Jesus become angry.
Sometimes we may forget that Jesus was a human being and had real emotions. Ask for three volunteers to read aloud the doctrine related to this Sunday’s Gospel.
Turn to the Talk questions on page 4. Answers:
1. Open-ended; this is an important discussion to have with young people. We see numerous examples every
day of Tweets, posts, and emails sent in haste—and in anger. It’s impossible to pull back angry words on social media, but we can learn from these mistakes. 2. Open-ended; showing kindness at school, volunteering at church or in the community.
