Sunday Readings: Deuteronomy 18:15-20; 1 Corinthians 7:32-35; Mark 1:21-28
                  For Catechists and Teachers
Scripture Background
Jesus shows his power and authority over evil in Sunday’s Gospel. Jesus speaks his own mind, offers his own teaching, and he does so on his own authority. He calms and makes whole a man with an unclean spirit who enters the synagogue.
Connecting Scripture and Doctrine
Visions helps the young people explore what possesses or drives them, and it challenges them to be driven by faith in Jesus. “Christ’s whole life is a mystery of redemption. Redemption comes to us above all through the blood of his cross, but this mystery is at work throughout Christ’s entire life: in his healings and exorcisms by which ‘he took our infirmities and bore our diseases’” (CCC, 517). “Jesus’ works and words will manifest him as ‘the Holy One of God’” (CCC, 438). “The four gospels occupy a central place because Christ Jesus is their center” (CCC, 139).
