 Distribute the What the Church Believes and Teaches handbooks.
Living the Gospel l How Do We Handle Feeling Angry? (pages 6–7) The activities on these pages help young people explore ways to deal with anger. Read the first section on page 6 together. Discuss and question as you go. Does it surprise you to see Jesus show anger? Have the students complete the checklist and questions in the blue box (right column) individually.
Then organize the class into two groups. Ask each to read one of the two stories on page 7 and answer the questions. Encourage each group to create and act out an ending.
Attitudes l Which of the Ten Commandments is the most challenging one to keep? (page 8) Invite the young people to respond to the Attitudes questions and compare their answers with those of their peers.
Closing Prayer Play “We Will Walk With God” (CD-2, #8) quietly in the background. Ask the young people to close their eyes, and give them a moment to quiet themselves. Ask them young people to focus on a problem or concern that is weighing on them.
After 20 seconds of silence, say: “Wise and loving God, you know all that worries and angers these young people. Help them remember you are always with them.” Then ask the young people to focus on whatever makes them grateful (20 seconds). “Creator God, you hear the gratitude of these young people. They have life from you and give you thanks. Amen.”
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.

WHAT THE CHURCH BELIEVES AND TEACHES HANDBOOK
What the Church Believes and Teaches
The Ten Commandments (pages 32–34)
Continue the young people's study of the Ten Commandments on this week's Visions cover and page 5 by having them review pages 32–34 in threes or fours.
Ask them to consider if anything is missing and what they might add as an 11th commandment. Have the groups share their suggestions. Invite the rest of the class to discuss if the matter is basic and significant enough to be a commandment, if it helps create a holy community.
Turn to page 38, if time permits, and have the young people take the "Name That Commandment" quiz.
Or put them in two teams and ask the questions as a Commandment trivia challenge!
Have the young people close their What the Church Believes and Teaches handbooks and return to Visions, page 5.
Catholic Faith Word l Ten Commandments (page 5) Read this summary of Israel's moral law to introduce the Our Catholic Faith feature.
Our Catholic Faith l The Ten Commandments Make the Israelite’s God’s People (page 5) Explain that both the covenant of the Commandments and the Temple are signs of God’s loving presence with Israel; Jesus is the new temple and new sign of God’s loving presence with us and in us. Have the young people read this feature aloud. Look again at the Ten Commandments on the cover, and then ask students to write or paraphrase them in their own words.
Then have the young people identify what is happening in the photos. Ask them to respond to the two questions.

Honoring Those Who Care for You
Five commandments help us honor our human relationships. Often the greatest challenges in our relationships occur closest to home. How can we honor the people closest to us—namely, our parents or guardians? Instead of waiting for a special occasion to start honoring those who care for you, create a habit of honoring them daily.
This coupon book will help you create that habit. Color and decorate the page below. Cut out each coupon, and staple them together along the left side with the cover page on top. Present the finished book to your parent or guardian, and then follow through on the promises when they present a coupon to you.
