A Beatitues Prayer:

Lord, make me poor in spirit, so I can receive the kingdom of heaven.

Lord, when I mourn, help me find comfort.

Lord, make me meek, so that I may inherit the land.

Lord, help me to hunger and thirst for righteousness, so I may be satisfied.

Lord, make me merciful, so I may obtain your mercy.

Lord, make me pure of heart, so I may see you. Lord, help me to make peace, so I may be called your child.

Lord, when I am persecuted for righteousness’ sake, show me your kingdom.

Lord, when we are reviled and persecuted and told all kinds of evil against us falsely on your account, may we rejoice and be glad, for our reward is great in heaven.

AMEN.

Although we may not often ask this question of other people, I am sure we have all thought about it once or twice.

Well, Jesus did ask this question. As a matter of fact, He asked it THREE TIMES in a row to the same person!

 

Watch this video to find out why.

HOMEWORK

Fr. Robert Barron - A priest for the Archdiocese of Chicago, Fr. Barron is President of the University of Saint Mary of the Lake.

RbtBarron

He is a well known author and scholar on Catholic history.

Watch this video

from CATHOLICISM by Fr. Robert Barron and then choose 2 of the following questions to answer and bring them with you to your next class session.

  • For you what is the strongest evidence that Jesus is the Son of God?
  • Fr. Barron says either Jesus was "the Son of God" or " a dangerous fanatic to be avoided". If someone said to you "I think Jesus was just a fanatic and not the Son of God" How would you debate the issue with them?
  • Fr. Barron mentions how Jesus differs from the following people: Buddha, Confucius, Muhammad, Deepak Chopra. Discuss with your parent these individuals and how both of you feel they differ from Jesus.
  • Why do you think some people today say Jesus is a "good moral teacher" but "is not God"?  

JUMPING AHEAD.... Mary, the Mother of God

In our next session we will be focusing on Mary.

Discuss these questions with your parent:

1. Both you and your parent come up with your own THREE words to describe Mary. Once you have your words, share them with each other and explain why you chose those words to describe Mary.

2.The church celebrates many Feast Days in honor of Mary including (but not limited to) the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, the Feast of the Annunciation and the Feast of the Assumption of Mary.  With your parent, research these three Feast Days mentioned to find out what is celebrated on each of them.
