Sunday Readings: Leviticus 13:1–2, 44–46; 1 Corinthians 10:31—11:1; Mark 1:40–45
For Catechists and Teachers
Scripture Background
In Sunday’s Gospel, Jesus is moved with compassion for a leper, a person who was an outcast of society. The leper, whose faith in Jesus brought him to ask for healing, is so moved by this sign of God’s love that he tells the Good News everywhere he goes.
Connecting Scripture and Doctrine
If the children bring valentines, be sure they include every child in the class. Valentine’s Day can be a chance for the children to tell the good news of how they care for others and how others care for them.
“Catechesis not only reveals God’s identity but, in doing so, reveals the deepest truths about human beings: that we are made in God’s image, that we are religious beings by nature, that the desire for God is written on our hearts, that God never ceases to draw us to himself, and that we are made to live in communion with him” (NDC, 25H).
Sharing the Lesson with Families
Valentine’s Day can sometimes cause children to worry. Will I get any valentines? Who likes me? Promise explores children’s worries and their ability to show love and care. Jesus healing a leper, an outcast, shows us his love is for everyone. Encourage parents to invite their child to share the story of the leper.
