Chapter 1: God Sends Us His Own Son

Today we began class by saying the Angelus, which is a prayer traditionally said at 6:00 a.m., noon and 6:00 p.m. Our parish has begun to say it before the noon and 6:00 p.m masses and children at OLDP school say it at noon. It is a prayer that tells the story of Mary saying "Yes" to God and Jesus becoming incarnate in her womb.

Next, we learned about Jesus' childhood and the beginnings of His ministry. You can read what the Bible has to say about his childhood in Luke 2 and Matthew 3 tells about Jesus' baptism.

To see how well you remember our lesson, take the test here. See you next week, and don't forget to leave a comment so I'll know you were here!
