 Our Catholic Faith l We Pray with the Whole ChurchintheEucharisticPrayer(page5) Ask
what the priest in the photo is doing and why his arms are outstretched—praying the Eucharistic Prayer. Extending his arms shows he is praying to God and gathering in our prayer. Read aloud the opening paragraph to define Eucharist and Mass.
l Use the second paragraph to help your group remember the preparation of the gifts and communion parts of Eucharist. Then explain we have some new words in our prayers they may still need to learn. Lead them in the dialogue and say the “Holy, Holy, Holy” together.
l Ask what a chalice is. Review the words of consecration next in column two. Explain that each response affirms Jesus’ death and resurrection. Conclude with the final paragraph and invite your class to respond to the question.
Live the Gospel
Objectives l The young people will:
l Explore Jesus’ identity in Mark’s Gospel.
l Appreciate Misericordia as a way of following Jesus in his
healing ministry.
Living the Gospel l Who Is This? (pages 6-7) Explain that the first and second chapters of Mark’s Gospel present a day-by-day look at Jesus—who he is and what his ministry is. Read aloud the introductory text on page 6. Distribute Bibles. Have students work alone, in small groups, or as a class to complete the activity. Share findings.
Answers: 1. Son of God, beloved Son, Jesus of Nazareth. 2. Judaism. 3. Preaching, teaching, casting out demons. 4. Capernaum. 5. Has authority, can command demons, can heal people, is compassionate, prays, has emotions, forgives sins, associates with all kinds of people. 6.

8. Four fishermen, Peter’s mother-in-law, leper, tax collector. 9. Beloved Son, teacher, miracle worker, holy man, compassionate, God-like.
Catholic Leader l Misericordia, Heart of Mercy (page 8) Have the children look at page 8 in pairs and discover all they can about the ministry from the photos and cutlines before they read the story at top left. Then have volunteers read aloud the story. Ask how this ministry continues Jesus’ ministry. It reaches out to people who need help because of their disabilities. The young people are used to having students of all intellectual abilities together in their classrooms. Share with your group that Sister Rosemary Connelly started this ministry to care for her nephew, who otherwise would have had to go to a state facility at age six.
Closing Prayer Remind the young people of the words
of thanks and praise in the Eucharistic Prayer. In that spirit, ask volunteers to offer prayers of thanks, especially for those who have called them—teachers, parents, coaches, friends.
 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.

                    Turn to page 10. Recall with the group that, in last Sunday’s Gospel, John the Baptist points out Jesus to Andrew. Jesus invites Andrew to come and see him. Andrew stays with Jesus all afternoon and then tells his brother Peter that he has found the Messiah.
l Ask your group to suggest what Andrew and Jesus talked about.
l Ask what they would want to talk with Jesus about in Andrew’s place.
Have the group read the first paragraph in this section to review the meaning of the term Messiah.
Have volunteers pantomime or dramatize this Sunday’s Gospel story of Jesus calling his first followers. Talk about why Peter, Andrew, James, and John followed Jesus so quickly and what they think becoming a fisher of people might be.
Have the young people close their What the Church Believes and Teaches handbooks and return to Visions, page 5.
