Grades 7 & 8 Religion

February 2020 

The virtues are an ability to make morally good decisions that lead to the habit of doing good. Christian virtues are considered gifts from God that we can develop into habits of Christian living; they lead us to live in a close relationship with God. Like any good habit,  they need to be practiced; they can be lost if they are neglected. 7th and 8th grade will review the Theological and Cardinal/Moral virtues and how they can help us to make good choices and live reflecting God's love for us. 

7th Grade will learn about Parables, how to read them, how to understand them, and the symbolism used. Jesus made brilliant use of a genre which was already traditional within the Mediterranean world.

8th grade will learn about the Holy Roman Empire, Charlemagne, and the events and circumstances leading to the schism.

 "Let love be genuine; hate what is evil, hold fast to what is good; love one another with brotherly affection; outdo one another in showing honor. Never flag in zeal, be aglow with the Spirit, serve the Lord. Rejoice in your hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. Contribute to the needs of the saints, practice hospitality.” – St. Paul, Romans 12:9-13
