The Faith and Life Third Edition series is a comprehensive catechetical series for Grades 1-8. It combines a solid doctrinal text with a scriptural presentation enhanced by beautiful classical and original artwork. Based on the story of Salvation History, each grade level speaks of the historical story of God's love to lead the student to encounter Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
Using the time-tested ecclesial methodology and spiral development of catechesis, the series has been updated and enhanced over the years into both a student and teacher friendly, comprehensive format.
THEME: Preparation for the first reception of the sacraments of Penance and Holy Communion, with the law of God and salvation history as background. The lesson emphasizes God's mercy and love. Covers Commandments, Creation and Redemption.
SEQUENCE: Ch. 1-16: God teaches us through his law; we obey through love.
Ch. 17-23: We find forgiveness of sins through Jesus' sacrifice.
Ch. 24-34: We prepare for life in Heaven by reception of Jesus in the Eucharist and our life in the Church.
AIM: To prepare second grade students for Confession and Holy Communion, and to help them appreciate God's love for them shown in these two sacraments. There is an added emphasis on the order of the Mass and on prayer.
