Sacraments and God’s Grace is the fifth-semester course (first semester in year 3) in the new high school series Live Jesus in Our Hearts. This series takes a fresh approach to the framework outline with an in-depth use of Scripture, an evangelizing approach in introducing key topics, and new student book features for student learning and review. And consistent with the Lasallian educational tradition, extensive resources—both written and digital—are included for the teacher.
Sacraments and God’s Grace continues the Live Jesus in Our Hearts series’ commitment to Scripture and Tradition by connecting the Seven Sacraments with their biblical and historical roots. The course takes a deep dive into each of the sacraments and their effects. The approach of the student book is to help the students connect the sacred experiences of the sacraments with their own lives. To help flesh this out, every chapter has features on Pope Francis’s teachings on the sacraments, examples of holy men and women living out the sacraments in their everyday lives, and pointers and encouragement for the students to embrace the sacraments as the source of their Christian life.
