The Day of the Lord

Chapter Context

This is the lesson that explains how one should observe the day of the Lord. It clearly presents the observance of Sabbath in the Old Testament and Sunday in the New Testament. This lesson is useful in training the students as to how they should observe Sundays and other days of Obligation and what duties to be performed./p>

Teacher's Guide

  1. Conviction

    - Sunday is the day of the Lord.
    - Sabbath is an occasion to do virtues.

  2. Attitudes

    - We should be thankful for getting Sunday for adoring the Lord.
    - We are obliged to do more good things on Sundays.

  3. Habit

    - On all Sundays I would participate in the Holy Mass and receive Holy Communion.

  4. Teaching aids

    The Bible, Calendar, chart Paper ‘Ten Commandments – A Study’, ‘The Day of the Lord’ – (An Encyclical by Pope John Paul II)
  5. Presentation of the lesson

    “Which is the first day of the week? Sunday. The Sun gives light. The one who gives light to the world is Jesus. “I am the light of the world”. Sunday is the day of Jesus. Also it was on a Sunday that Jesus resurrected. In this way talking about Sabbath through questions and answers you may begin with the lesson.

    Let us do:

    Ask the children to find out the Saint whose name they have received in Baptism and motivate them to read the biography of those Saints. Make the books available to them. Also ask them to write a short note on the life history of those saints.

  1. My diary:

    Suggest to the students that they should maintain a diary for noting down in detail the things they do on Sundays show them a model of the diary.
  2. The Day of the Lord:

    The Encyclical of Pope John Paul II ‘The Day of the Lord’ may be introduced in the class. Read out some extracts from the same.
