This devotion helps us to remain more faithfully in the company of our Lord Jesus who always dwells with us in the Church, above all in the Holy Eucharist. The particular object of this devotion is the immense love of the Son of God, by which He allowed Himself to be delivered up to death for us and to give Himself entirely to us in the Blessed Sacrament of the Altar. 6. Prayer is the foundation of a lifelong relationship with God. We can learn about God at home and at school but we cannot know Him personally without prayer. 7. Daily prayer and living the Christian life are inseparable. Doing the will of God and reaching Heaven is only possible through prayer. We cannot forgive enemies, understand suffering and love God above all things without prayer. (CCC 2744-2745, 2757, 2752, 1023-1024) 8. God hears every prayer that we make and answers every prayer in a way that is best for us even if we do not always understand God’s ways. He is always faithful and is with us through all our joys and sorrows in life. (CCC 2610 - 2616) 9. The Mass is the highest form of prayer. At the Mass, the bread and wine are changed into the Body and Blood of Jesus. The Holy Eucharist is the deepest encounter between God and us on this earth because we are able to literally be in communion with Jesus Christ. (CCC 1374, 1391, 1324-1325, 1407) 10.

The Bible should also be read in the classroom and at home. (CCC 101-104) 12. 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 opened the gates of Heaven. We are able to know Jesus personally through the Gospel stories. (CCC 125, 129) 13. The memorization of basic prayers offers an essential support to the life of prayer. It is also important to help students savor their meaning. (CCC 2688) As the habit of personal prayer develops, students will become comfortable with silence in meditation, praying with Scripture using Lectio Divina, and “listening” to the Holy Spirit. They will also grow in the awareness of the presence of God. Students should memorize the following prayers: • Sign of the Cross • Our Father • Hail Mary • Glory Be • Prayer to my Guardian Angel • Act of Contrition • Apostles Creed • The Morning Offering • Prayer to prepare for Mass • Prayer of Thanksgiving After Receiving Jesus in Holy Communion • Memorare • The Joyful, Luminous, Sorrowful, and Glorious Mysteries of the Rosary • Hail Holy Queen 14.
