January 14, 2018 • 2nd Sunday in Ordinary TimeSunday Readings: 1 Samuel 3:3b–10, 19;1 Corinthians 6:13c–15a, 17–20; John 1:35–42For Catechists and TeachersScripture BackgroundThe Gospels of Ordinary Time tell us about the dynamic opening days of Jesus’ ministry. Jesus calls Andrew and Peter, and later James and John. All respond immediately and follow him. He raises up Peter’s mother-in-law from her sick bed, and she gives her life to the new community as a disciple. He heals people and frees them from demons.Connecting Scripture and DoctrinePromise helps children explore how they are followers of Jesus in their daily lives.The children identify who helps them learn to listen, follow, and care for others. They practice simple respectful behaviors as they take part in the sense-involving activities appropriate to their developmental stage. They pray together as Jesus’ community and prepare to join the parish community in Sunday worship.“The Christian faith is, above all, conversion to Jesus Christ, full adherence to his person and the decision to walk in his footsteps.... For disciples, saying ‘yes’ to Jesus Christ means that they abandon themselves to God and give loving assent to all that he has revealed” (NDC, 29B). See also CCC, 7688.Sharing the Lesson with FamiliesLet parents know that the Sundays of Ordinary Time after Christmas tell the stories of Jesus’ ministry.
