Jesus said, “Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit…” (Make connection with the Sign of the Cross) “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord...” The Burning Bush: God reveals that He is a personal God. Jesus said, “Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit…” (See Prayer Section, Sign of the Cross) Creation by God: God created us in His image. This means that He created us with an intellect, a will with freedom to choose good or evil and He created us to be in communion with other persons and most especially Himself. God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit made everything out of nothing. God is all-powerful: He can do everything; He knows everything; He is all good; and He looks after us wherever we are. (CCC 296-298, 338, 234, 232, 237) Genesis 1:3-25 Psalm 33 Psalm 8 God created the heavens and the earth, animals and plants. . . God created these things to provide for us and He expects us to take care of them. (See Moral Life, number 21 and 22) . “By the Lord’s word the heavens were made.” “When I see your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and stars that you set in place.” 6. The Holy Spirit is a Divine Person. He is pure Spirit. The Holy Spirit came down from Heaven in the form of a dove and rested upon Jesus when John baptized Him. Because He is pure Spirit, we cannot see the Holy Spirit and therefore the dove is a sign that He is present. We receive the Holy Spirit in Baptism. In the Sacrament of Confirmation, the Holy Spirit gives us the strength to follow Jesus when it is especially difficult to follow Him. (CCC 685,1279, 1302-1303) 7. God created angels as spiritual beings. Angels are God’s messengers. We all have our own personal guardian angel. Our guardian angel keeps constant, watchful care over us and guides us and protects us on our journey to God in Heaven (CCC 328-329, 331-333, 336) Matthew 18:10 Psalm 91:10-13 8. All of the angels were put to a test to see if they would be faithful to God. Lucifer and some of the angels completely rejected God and they became Satan and his demons. (CCC 391-395) Revelation 12:7-9 John 8:44 9. Our “angels look upon the face of God.” “For God commands the angels to guard you in all your ways.” Satan, the devil, and the other demons rejected God and were cast from Heaven by St. Michael and the good angels. Satan is a liar and “the father of lies.” God created Adam and Eve in His image and likeness. He created Adam and Eve and the whole human race to know, love and serve Him so that we can be united with Him both here and forever August 6th, 2009 Transfiguration of our Lord Diocese of La Crosse Page 7 of 22 Grade 2 in Heaven.
