Hello Class,
today is Mother’s day and I thought it would be appropriate to learn more about our Mother Mary. In different cultures she is represented differently. In Latin America, for example, she is Our Lady of Guadalupe.

Please watch this video about Our Lady of Guadalupe and how she helped a young man in need.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I-u7SFLvz8Q

Here is a prayer to Our Lady of Guadalupe that you can say together with your family:

Mother of Mercy,
Teacher of hidden and silent sacrifice,
to you, who come to meet us sinners,
we dedicate on this day all our being and our love.
We also dedicate to you our life, our work,
our joys, our weaknesses, and our sorrows.
We wish to be entirely yours
and to walk with you
along the way of complete faithfulness
to Jesus Christ and his Church;
hold us always with your loving hand.

Best,

Roger

Hey Class,

I hope you are all doing well. For this week, review the different prayers we have learned over the year. Please read Chapter 26 of your textbook and complete the questions in the “what I have learned section.”

In addition, please answer this question:

What is your special place to pray? I always pray away from a TV or computer, sometimes near my books — a good place to concentrate.

Please email your answers to me at: rogerfelipe2@gmail.com

I hope you are all well, stay safe.

Best,

Mr. Roger

Hey Class,

I hope you are all doing well!

For this week, please read about the types of prayers and prayer habits in pages 319 – 329 of your textbook.

We sometimes wonder if and how God listens to us? But we should know he hears all of our prayers and we need to have faith. Faith is like a a battery for our prayers, without which they are just words.

Remember the story of Doubting Thomas. After Jesus came back and saw the Apostles, Thomas did not believe that it was really Jesus. How could he call himself an apostle if he did not believe? He was missing faith. To many, seeing is believing, but having faith means believing in what you cannot see. 

Think of the Force; Luke didn’t believe until he was shown the way by Yoda.

When we pray we need to believe with our whole heart that God our Father is listening. When you have faith, you can live by these words:

“Let us do our best and God will do the rest.”

Please answer the questions on page 329 and email your answers to me at: rogerfelipe2@gmail.com

Hi Class,

Over the last few weeks, we covered being a good neighbor and the beatitudes. This week, we’re looking at prayers, what they mean to us, how we use them and how Jesus used prayers. Keep in mind that a “prayer” can be spoken, it can be a thought or it can be a song like the psalms.

Please read pages 307-318 in your text book for this week and complete the activities on page 317. 

Please also complete the questions on the page below (“Search the Scriptures”) and share your answers with me at:

I hope you are all staying well and keeping safe.

All the best,

Mr. Roger

For the week of March 29 – April 4, 2020

Hey Everyone!

I hope all of you are safe and I’m keeping you in my prayers. Let’s also pray for all of the brave medical workers [like the nurse above] who are doing their best to keep us all safe from the coronavirus.

Let’s help them out by following the rules. Together, we can beat this! 

One of the rules is to stay at home. Why do we have to stay at home? Well, by not having contact with other people, we keep from catching the Covid-19 virus from someone else. That someone else might be our neighbor!

The topic of this week’s lesson is Mark 12: 30-31,

30 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’[a] 31 [also] ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b] There is no commandment greater than these.”

For this week’s homework assignment, tell me how staying at home is a way of loving your neighbor. You can type your answer in the “Leave a Reply” box at the bottom of this page. Or, you can email your answer to:

transfiguration.re.ed@gmail.com

All the best,

Mr. Roger

The Sermon on the Mount

Matthew 5: 1-12

[The Beatitudes]

Now when Jesus saw the crowds, he went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to him, 2 and he began to teach them. He said:

3 “Blessed are the poor in spirit,
    for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
4 Blessed are those who mourn,
    for they will be comforted.
5 Blessed are the meek,
    for they will inherit the earth.
6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
    for they will be filled.
7 Blessed are the merciful,
    for they will be shown mercy.
8 Blessed are the pure in heart,
    for they will see God.
9 Blessed are the peacemakers,
    for they will be called children of God.
10 Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,
    for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

11 “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. 12 Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

In the ‘Leave a Reply” box below, type out any three (3) of the Beatitudes and, for each of the Beatitudes, name one famous person from history, or a Nobel prize winner or a celebrity who exemplifies the kind of person the Beatitude refers to. For example: “Blessed are the meek.” Mother Theresa

For the week of March 15-21, 2020

The last week we were together, we talked about making Christian decisions. We learned that each of us has at least four natural gifts we can call upon to make a decision: our conscience, our intellect, our feelings or emotions and free will.

For this week of March 15-21, please study pages 229 to 240 in your text book [Faith First 5] and do the exercises in the book. When classes resume, I’ll look at what each of you have done.

Additionally, with one or more of your family members, please visit the “Make a Difference” page on the Faith First website for ideas on how you and your family can share God’s love with others this week. Here is a link to the page:
