Focus on the Sunday Gospel to Celebrate the 7th Sunday in Ordinary Time.
Use this unit study to help teach children that we are called to love everyone - even those who don't like us. It is based on Christ's teaching about loving our enemies in the Gospel of St. Matthew 5:38-48.
We are not obligated to like everyone we meet, but we are called as Christians to show love to all people—including those who are different than ourselves, who don’t share our beliefs, or who hurt us in some way. We must remember that we are brothers and sisters in Christ, and so we should use our words and actions to make others feel loved.
