Focus on the Sunday Gospel for the Solemnity of All Saints.
Use this unit study to help teach children that the beatitudes lead us to sainthood. This lesson is based on Matthew 5:1-12.
In this week’s Gospel, Jesus teaches us about the beatitudes. He doesn't use a parable or a miracle, rather Christ simply explains that those who live humbly and faithfully with full trust in God will gain a great reward in heaven. The reward is sainthood - being with God in heaven. For this reason, we should rejoice at all times and find goodness in all things.
