I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of Heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, Our
Lord, Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was
crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into Hell; the third day He rose again from the dead. He
ascended into Heaven and sits at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty; from thence He shall come to
judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church, the Communion of
Saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen. August 6th, 2009

At Second Grade, the students should know and understand the following Truths of Faith.
1. Mary watches over us from Heaven with much love. She is a special friend of children. Mary is the
Mother of Jesus and she leads us to Him. (CCC 495) 2. God the Father chose Mary to be the Mother of the Savior. God sent the angel Gabriel to ask her to be
the Mother of His Son. Mary said yes to God. During the course of her earthly life, she loved God so
much that she always said yes to Him. Mary never sinned. (CCC 490, 494) 3. Jesus gave Mary to us as our Mother to love and care for us. Mary loves us very much. We need to
love her as Jesus did and pray to her every day for help and guidance. Mary will keep us from sin
and lead us to her loving Son and our Savior. (CCC 964, 967-969) 4. It is important to study the life of Mary because she loves Jesus with all her heart. Furthermore, Mary
teaches us about Jesus our Savior. We can ask Mary to pray for us as she is the Queen of all saints.
(CCC 2618) 5. A saint is a person who came to know and love God, lived a life close to Jesus and is united forever with
Him in Heaven. We can be sure that canonized saints are our brothers and sisters in Heaven who
can pray for us. Just as we are able to ask friends and family members to pray for us, we can ask
the saints in Heaven to pray for us. (CCC See glossary for the definition of a saint) 6. God wants everyone to be a saint. Our greatest joy are achieved in becoming a saint.
