October 29, 2017 • 30th Sunday in Ordinary TimeSunday Readings: Exodus 22:20–26;1 Thessalonians 1:5c–10; Matthew 22:34–40For Catechists and TeachersScripture BackgroundIn Sunday’s Gospel, Jesus teaches us the Great Commandment: love God and love your neighbor as yourself. In his life, Death, and Resurrection, Jesus shows us in action our own value as human beings and the importance of treating others with the respect and love they deserve.The Pharisees’question in Sunday’s Gospel asks Jesus to sift through the 613 laws of the Law of Moses and identify the most important one.Connecting Scripture and Doctrine“Dioceses and parishes should ensure that catechesis presents...the double commandment of love of God and neighbor as the centerpiece of Jesus’ moral teaching, summing up the Decalogue [Ten Commandments] and lived in the spirit of the Beatitudes” (NDC, 25G). See also CCC, 1970–72.Young children are not capable of selfless love; they are too busy gaining a sense of self. However, they learn from stories and from practicing loving actions. Promise explores actions the children can do to show love of God and others.Sharing the Lesson with FamiliesJesus calls love the greatest commandment. Encourage parents to help their child recognize how he or she gives and receives love. A loving word from a parent tells the child forgiveness and acceptance can be counted on. Suggest that they ask their child to lead them through this issue of Promise to learn where he or she is happiest giving love and most eager to receive it.Materialsl  Promise Student Lesson for 10/29l  Catechism handbook, page 21l  CD player and Promise/Good News CD-2 l  paper heartsl  scissors and tape or gluel  crayons or colored pencilsl  magazines and poster boardl  coins and game markersSuggested Musicl  “The Great Commandment” (CD-2, #18)l  “Gospel Acclamation” (CD-2, #24) l  “Come and Follow Me” (CD-2, #14)Lesson Resourcesl  Promise Activity Book, Activity #25 l  Weekly Review Template(gospelweeklies.com/Catechists- Teachers)Jesus teaches about love.PFLAUM GOSPEL WEEKLIES Faith Formation ProgramOctober 29, 201730th Sunday in Ordinary Time.Single-Session Lesson Pacing GuidesNote: These pacing guides are suggestions for how to present the lesson.
