OSV Lifelong Catechesis


Blessing Family Members

Remind your family of God’s presence as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, by starting a family tradition of blessing family members before they go to bed at night by tracing the Sign of the Cross on their forehead and blessing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

Sign of the Cross

Trinity Sunday is an excellent time to call attention to the use of the Sign of the Cross and the prayer that we say when we make the Sign of the Cross. Teach the very young this sign and prayer. Talk to your family about the need to say the prayer with meaning.

Living in Peace

“Live in peace, and the God of love and peace will be with you” (2 Cor 13:11).

In China a baby monkey became separated from his mother and was very weak when some people found him and took him to an animal shelter. The workers at the animal shelter fed him and cared for him. He gained strength and his health improved, but he acted very sad.

Then a lovely thing happened. He made friends with a white pigeon. The little monkey and the pigeon spend a lot of time together. (Show photo.)

We would not think that a monkey and a pigeon could be friends. They are quite different from each other. In this case the baby monkey felt all alone and reached out to the pigeon. The pigeon was not afraid of the monkey and allowed him to be close. The two became friends and this helped the monkey overcome his sadness. We can learn a lot from animals.

Lifted Up

“As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up,” (John 3:14).

Let’s talk about things that are lifted up. Parade flags are placed on poles so others will be sure to see them. Flags are also raised on tall, stationary flag poles and placed on the tops of buildings so they can be seen from a distance.

Have you ever watched an athlete who has just won a race? The winner often stretches his or her arms above the head to express joy and celebrate the accomplishment. (Demonstrate this action.)

In team sports the winners may lift the team captain or the winning player onto their shoulders and carry him or her off the field.

Why are these things done? Yes, we lift something up so it can be seen and shared with others because it is something we believe in. It is something that has value and is satisfying. It is something that gives us joy and is cause for celebration.

New and Better Life

“For God didn’t send his Son into the world to judge (condemn) the world, but that the world should be saved through him.”

Have you ever seen an old building in such poor repair that it looks as if it is about to fall down? It could be a shed, a barn, or even an old house.

Sometimes the owners may decide the building is so weak and shaky that it must be taken down so it will not injure someone. When that happens, the word that is used is condemned. People say, “That old building has been condemned.” There is just too much wrong with it. It can’t be repaired or given new life; it must be taken down.

This may seem shocking, but people can also be condemned. When we find fault with someone we send a message that they are not good enough, like a building that is no longer of use.

You may know what it feels like to have someone disapprove of you. It is an unhappy feeling. No one likes to have someone tell them they have faults and weaknesses.
