Item description for Marriage And Holy Orders: Your Call to Love And Serve by Michael Amodei & Joseph M. Champlin...
Overview Marriage and Holy Orders: Your Call to Love and Serve has been found in conformity with the Catechism of the Catholic Church. It is the first high school vocations text to be found in conformity by the US Bishops Ad Hoc Committee to Oversee the Use of the Catechism. Marriage and Holy Orders is the first text that focuses solely on vocations expressed in the two sacraments at the service of communion: marriage and priesthood. It follows the content outline proposed by the US Bishops in the new national high school curriculum. These important sacraments of vocation are set in the context of a practical study of what it means to live the Christian and human vocation of Baptism. Each of the four units of the book places the discussion of marriage and priesthood into the context of the experiences, dreams, and goals of a high school student soon to graduate and head off to college. After an introduction that helps students to find their place in this discussion, the four units further the topics in more detail: Unit One: God Is Calling You introduces the common Christian vocation of holiness and offers several ways to discern future vocational choices. Unit Two: Called to Holiness Through Marriage emphasizes the permanent bond of marriage and the connection between the love of the spouse and the love of Christ for the community of Christians. Unit Three: Called to Service Through Holy Orders reminds teens that everyone is called to share in the priesthood of Christ while some men are ordained to serve the Church and all the world. Unit Four: Answer God's Call is a concluding chapter that helps teens to realize that a vocation is not something "out there" rather they have a clear vocation now as a Catholic teen and lay person.
Publishers Description Designed for high school students who will soon be embarking, initially on college and career planning, then considering vocational choices such as marriage, religious life, or priesthood.
