Blessed - Grade 2

Lesson 1 - Child of God

Opening Prayer

God, our loving Father,

thank you for all the ways you bless me.

Help me to be aware that every person, place, and adventure

I experience is an opportunity to love you more.

Fill me with a desire to change and to grow,

and give me the grace

to become the-best-version-of-myself

in every moment of every day.

Amen.

You Are a Child of God

Welcome 2.png

You are a child of God. You are part of the largest and most famous family in the world: the Catholic Church. You are blessed.

 

God wants you to always feel welcome in his presence, in his Church, and as a member of his family. You are the son or daughter of a great King.

 

You may think of yourself as a boy or a girl, as young or old, as black or white, as American or Chinese, but first and foremost, you are a child of God. He is the great King, and you are his son or daughter. We all have this in common. God is our Father.

God is your Father in heaven and he loves you so much!

You Are Blessed

You are blessed. What does it mean to be blessed? It means that God loves you and showers you with gifts.

 

You are blessed in so many ways, but every blessing you experience flows from the first blessing. You are a child of God. This is the original blessing.

What's the best gift you ever received?

We are blessed in so many ways, but Ben and Sarah are going to share the greatest blessing of all!
