The liturgy celebrates the work of Christ in redeeming us by calling us, saving us, blessing us, sanctifying us (making us holy) and giving glory to our Heavenly Father. The work of the people is joined with Christ through our response of thanksgiving, praise, worship, adoration, sacrifice, intercession and giving glory to our Heavenly Father in the liturgy. Sacrament of Baptism In Fourth Grade, students should review for greater understanding the following Truths of Faith except where a teaching is to be introduced, which will be bolded. Scriptures that are bolded are new for this grade. 1. The Sacrament of Baptism is the gateway to all the other Sacraments. Jesus said that we need to be baptized to go to Heaven (John 3:1-21). (CCC 1213-1215, necessity: CCC 1257-1261; For catechist’s reference: Baptism of desire: CCC 1258-1260, unbaptized babies who die: CCC 1261) Scriptures related to Baptism (CCC 1217-1222) Genesis 6:9-9:17 Noah’s Ark: God cleansed the earth of people who did not love God with the floodwaters and saved Noah and his family. Exodus 14:5-31 Moses and the parting of the Red Sea: God made the Israelites His people by bringing them to safety through the waters of the Red Sea.

In the Sacrament of Baptism, the Blessed Trinity comes to dwell within the person’s soul, making him/her a child of God and member of His Family, the Church. (CCC 1265, 1267-1270) 3. Through Baptism we receive: a. Cleansing from original sin and forgiveness of all personal sin committed before Baptism. b.

An indelible mark on our souls (can never be repeated or removed). d. The Gifts necessary to live as children of God. (CCC 1266) (three Theological Virtues - CCC 1813, seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit CCC 1831) (effects: CCC 1262-1274, 1279-80) 4. Through Baptism, we receive the three Theological Virtues of faith, hope and charity. These virtues come from God and lead us back to Him. The Theological Virtues are the foundation of the Christian moral life. We also receive the seven supernatural Gifts of the Holy Spirit. These supernatural gifts are given for personal growth in holiness and to sustain the moral life. (CCC 1265-1266, 1812-1813, 1830-1831) 5.
