Unformatted text preview: and Eve were united with God through sanctifying grace within their souls – a participation in God’s Divine Life. By the power of knowing and loving God, we have a special worth over other earthly creatures. This worth is called “dignity.” (CCC, 362-366, 356-357, 374-376, 1934) Genesis 1:27 “God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him, male and female He created them.” 10. Adam and Eve were put to a test to see if they would be faithful to God. Satan tempted Adam and Eve and they disobeyed God. The first sin of Adam and Eve, called the Original Sin, separated them from God. They and all their descendents lost the union with God for which they had been created. They no longer had sanctifying grace within their souls. (CCC 396-400, 402-406, 418) Genesis 2:17 Genesis 3:1-7 “The Lord God gave man this order, ‘You are free to eat from any of the trees of the garden except the tree of knowledge of good and bad. . the moment you eat from it you are surely doomed to die.” The Fall from grace through the Original Sin of Adam and Eve. 11. God alone could fix the problem of sin and reunite mankind with Himself. Thankfully, God promised a Savior. Only the Savior could bring us back to the purpose for which we were created – being united with God (communion with God). (CCC 410-412, 420-421) Genesis 3:15 Romans 3:23 God promised a Redeemer who will be born to the Woman who has nothing in common with the Devil. Mary will be conceived without the stain of original sin – “full of grace.” “…all have sinned and are deprived of the glory of God. They are justified freely by is grace through the redemption in Christ Jesus.” 12. Jesus is God. Jesus was born as a baby on the first Christmas as our Savior. Jesus grew to be a man so He could share in our human life. He suffered and died on the cross to offer Himself as a perfect sacrifice to His Father to show His love and to make up for our sins. (CCC 464, 461, 463, 443-445, 601) Mark 1:1 Luke 2:11 “The beginning of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.” “For today in the city of David, a Savior has been born for you who is Messiah and Lord.” 13. Mary’s “yes” to God to be the Mother of Jesus made our salvation possible. Since Mary is the Mother of Jesus and Jesus is God, we rightly call Mary the Mother of God. (CCC 494-495, 497, 509, 485, 723) 14. The Gospels are the most important part of the Bible because they tell us about Jesus’ life, teaching, and how His death and resurrection saved us from sin and united us to Himself. (CCC 125, 426) Luke 1: 26-38 Luke 1:39-45 Luke 2:1-20 Matthew 1:18-2:12 Luke 2:22-38 Luke 2:41-52 August 6th, 2009 Transfiguration of our Lord The Annunciation: The Angel Gabriel announces to Mary that she will be the Mother of Jesus. Mary said, “Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord. May it be done to me according to your word.” The Visitation: Mary visits her cousin Elizabeth to serve her in her time of need. Elizabe...
