(CCC 2700, 2705, 2709) 9. 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) 10. 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

lifting up our hearts and minds to God. (CCC 2626-2644) 15. We know how much Jesus loves us because He allowed Himself to be crucified so that our sins could
be forgiven. One way to remind ourselves of His great love is to pray in front of the crucifix. This
symbol of love draws us to serve God and our neighbor more lovingly. We want to pray the “Our
