Lifelong CatechesisForming Catholic identity across generations
For a large part of the liturgical year, we devote ourselves to listening to the mystery of Christ in all its aspects unfolded as we seek God's truth and understanding.
Theme: How do we use what God has given us?
Breaking Open the Word
Suggested text for faith sharing: Today’s Gospel
Step One: Listen to the Word
Again today, the Gospel is demanding. When you heard it proclaimed, how did you feel? What word or phrase struck you? What is most memorable about this reading?
Step Two: Look into Your Life
Question for Children: Clothes, food, toys all cost money. How do you keep your faith more important than money?
Question for Youth: The Gospel tells us that money can get in the way of serving God. How can you use all that you have (possessions, money, time, talent) to serve God?
Question for Adults: Money is an important part of modern life. Suggest one or two ways you can keep the need for money in balance with your faith.
