CCD hs: Old Testament + CCC (day 7)

November 3, 2009 Leave a comment

Today, in our high school Confirmation class, we covered Chapter 3 on Old Testament.  We also included in introduction the the Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC) with a project assignment (a report or display or collage) based on individually assigned CCC quotes.

St Veronica (“bearer of victory”) wiped the face of Jesus on the road to Calvary.  His image remained on the cloth. Her feast day is July 12, same day as the Holy Face of Jesus.
