VATICAN CITY -- With fake news becoming ever more sophisticated, people need the wisdom, courage and patience to discern and embrace constructive stories,
Pope Francis said.
"We need stories that reveal who we truly are, also in the untold heroism of everyday life," Pope Francis wrote in his message for World Communications Day 2020.
It is an inspirational letter from Pope Frances that calls for us to examine our hearts, transform our social values and take action for global solidarity. The encyclical captures the disconnectedness of social, economic and environmental justice in building and protecting Our Common Home.Special Character Focus
This week and next week we continue teaching the Holy Spirit Strand and Pentecost. This study will give our children the resources to gain and apply knowledge and skills, attitudes and values to understand and integrate into their lives. Our selection of the key ideas is guided by our understanding of the Nicene Creed, the founding belief statement of the Catholic faith dating back to the Council of Nicea in AD325: Biblical teaching; Church tradition; and the Catechism of the Catholic church which the original RE curriculum documents are based on.
1-The Holy Spirit acts in people and in the Church
2. The Holy Spirit appears in Bible stories.
3. The Holy Spirit is the third person the Trinity.
TERM TWO SCRIPTURE / PRAYERS 2020 - from Wk 6 - 12 The aim for these short scriptures, is to draw a link between what has been said by God and by Jesus, that is relevant to us at present. (Really all the time but heightened at present.) I have selected these scriptures after searching for “scripture stories to bring people together”. The focus being on us starting again together and that following the Words of Scripture will help us to work and play well together.
Ephesians 4:32 Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you. The Good News: This verse is asking us to be kind to each other especially if someone has done something wrong. By doing this we are treating others as Jesus treats us. Through the kindness and love of God and Jesus we are forgiven when we have done the wrong thing. NEW TESTAMENT - After the Ascension - Paul's Letters to the churches.
