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 BackgroundThis Sunday, Jesus gives us his Great Commandment—love God above all things and love others as we love ourselves. When we keep these two laws, we keep all the other commandments. Young children have many rules in their lives. Some are for the good of the family and school; some are for safety. Some they impose on themselves and on each other. Seeds will help the children recognize these rules and why they are needed.Connecting Scripture and Doctrine“[D]ioceses and parishes should ensure that catechesis presents...the double commandment of love of God and neighbor as the centerpiece of Jesus’ moral teaching” (NDC, 25G). See also CCC, 2055.Sharing the Lesson with FamiliesChildren of Seeds age can understand that there are family rules everyone must keep. Suggest that parents review family rules with their child, talking together about which rules show love for God and which show love for one another. For instance, praying before meals, saying night prayers, and going to church are family rules that show love of God. Rules about fighting, sharing, and cleaning up show love of each other. Encourage them to review listening and talking rules that are important for family sharing.Single-Session Lesson Pacing GuidesNote: These pacing guides are suggestions for how to present the lesson.
