There are four forms of prayer: Adoration (praise and blessing), Contrition (repentance), Thanksgiving (gratitude), and Supplication (asking God for things). This can be memorized simply by the acronym ACTS: adoration, contrition, thanksgiving and supplication. In all prayer, we are lifting up our hearts and minds to God. (CCC 2626-2649) 16. In addition to referring to the Church as the People of God, the word “Church” can also refer to a sacred building in which Christ is present in the tabernacle. The Church is where members of God’s Family come together to worship the Lord and pray together. Believers are quiet when visiting a church in order to show their reverence and keep their focus on the Lord. We also want to show (CCC 1180 – 1181, 1185-1186) respect for those who are praying. 17. Children should develop a habit of personal prayer both in the morning and the evening, encouraged by parents at home and a consistent commitment of prayer in class. 18. Sacred images, statues, saints' pictures, a crucifix, holy water, and the rosary are reminders of God’s presence in our lives. Sacred images such as statues, icons and paintings help us to pray. Students should be encouraged to pray before the image of the Sacred Heart of Jesus that is displayed in the classroom. It is important to have these blessed objects in our home and at school to be mindful of God’s love for us and His constant presence in our lives. (CCC 478, 1159-1162, 1674, 2132) 19. The Rosary is a wonderful form of prayer by which we meditate upon the mysteries of Christ’s life and ask for Mary’s intercession.

These Stations follow the fourteen steps of Our Lord’s intense suffering that concludes with His crucifixion, death and burial. (CCC 1674) 21. Students are to know and be able to recite communal prayers and responses of the Mass: • Responses to Greeting and Penitential Rite • Responses to the Readings and the Gospel • Response to Intercessions • Response to Preparation of Gifts and the Eucharistic Preface • Holy, Holy, Holy • Memorial Acclamation • Great Amen • Our Father • Response to Sign of Peace • Lamb of God • Final Blessing and Dismissal 22. To visit Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament is a proof of gratitude, an expression of love, and a duty of adoration toward Christ Our Lord.
