New Resources to Help Teach About Sin and Forgiveness Based on the Parable of the Prodigal's Son and the Ten Commandments
New and Favourite Resources to Teach About the Prodigal's Son, Reconciliation, Sin and Forgiveness
As we prepare for our Lenten mission in our parish and enter into the final stretch towards preparation for First Reconciliation in my CCD class, I have created some new resources to help prepare children for their First Reconciliation by using the parable of the Prodigal's Son and the Ten Commandments.
As our Lord, Jesus Christ, told us the truth about our heavenly Father's ability to forgive us our sins through the parable of the Prodigal's Son, so too, it is important for children to be able to see the significance of the Ten Commandments as a way of recognizing one's own sin and thus better prepare to meet our Lord in the Sacrament of Reconciliation where sanctifying grace is to be poured into our souls. It is great that children can chant out the Ten Commandments from memory, but they must be able to see the application of them to their lives in order to know and recognize their own sin. If we recall, recognition of our sins is a crucial step to making a good confession.
Over the years I have tried to create a number of different kinds of resources to meet the needs of my kiddos as well as learners of varying ages and learning styles. Some resources are in game format, others are in printable activities and still others are worksheets and note sheets. Even if your child is not a big reader, there is sure to be something for them in the way of notebooking sheets or mini-books which encourage narration using words as well as their drawing skills. The printable confession booklet is an awesome resource to help adults and children alike. I hope you find our resources helpful and useful for your family or CCD or Religious Education class.
Here is a sampling of a few of the resources in our collection.
