November 12, 2017 • 32nd Sunday in Ordinary TimeSunday Readings: Wisdom 6:12–16;1 Thessalonians 4:13–18; Matthew 25:1–13For Catechists and TeachersScripture BackgroundIn Sunday’s Gospel, Jesus tells a parable about 10 girls, five, who wisely bring extra oil for their small lamps as they wait for a bridegroom to come for his bride, and five who don’t. The five foolish girls should have known that their small lamps could not hold enough oil if the groom was delayed.Connecting Scripture and Doctrine“Catechesis for school-age children presents [Jesus’] teaching, his ministry, and major events of his life. Children can begin to appreciate the parables of Jesus and capture glimpses of the Kingdom of God” (NDC, 48E.2). See also CCC, 1732–34.Promise interprets Sunday’s parable as a call to the children to participate fully in the life around them and to recognize making choices as part of the human condition. They praise God by being the human persons they were created to be.Sharing the Lesson with FamiliesChildren make choices each day about what to wear, what to eat, what to play. Parents try to protect young children from foolish and dangerous choices. Encourage parents to make a special point of giving their child choices to make this week. The children’s practice in making choices builds experience that grows slowly into wisdom.Materialsl  Promise Student Lesson for 11/12l  Catechism handbook, pages 31 and 29l  CD player and Promise/Good News CDsl  scissors, tape or stapler, crayons or coloredpencils, pencils or craft sticksl  story of the Little Red Hen—from libraryor YouTubeNOTE: Prepare puppets on pages 3–4.Suggested Musicl  “Yes, Lord, I Believe” (CD-2, #26) l  “Gospel Acclamation” (CD-2, #24) l  “CHOICES” (CD-1, #16)Lesson Resourcesl  Promise Activity Book, Activity #6l  Weekly Review Template (gospelweeklies.com/Catechists-Teachers)I make choices.Draw a circle around your choice in each row.PFLAUM GOSPEL WEEKLIES Faith Formation ProgramPromiseV32 #8 2017-11-12.indd 1 6/13/17 11:02 AMNovember 12, 201732nd Sunday in Ordinary TimeSingle-Session Lesson Pacing GuidesNote: These pacing guides are suggestions for how to present the lesson.
