Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0877936870, Paperback)Written in accord with the Catechism of the Catholic Church and rooted in the sound catechetical principles of the National Catechetical Directory, these texts present a well-defined curriculum model that stresses clear objectives, careful organization, and creative methods and evaluation procedures to check the attainment of goals. Very flexible, allowing teachers to select materials to highlight and stress, each text can be implemented on various grade levels for a quarter, a semester, or a full year depending on the length and frequency of class meetings.Dotted with relevant features, profiles, activities, and discussion questions, Called to Love: Your Christian Vocation is a book for high school juniors and seniors in the context of our basic call to be fully human and to live a holy, Christian life. It leads them to realize that their ultimate vocation is to live a life of love. The text also guides the students to consider career choices and to know the value of work. They study how to prepare for a career and how to go about choosing one. They also learn about ethical practices necessary for the workplace.Called to Love: Your Christian Vocation reminds teens that the core truths of life -- that God loves us and saves us and that we only become fully human when we love God and love others -- are completely related to whatever life path they choose. This baptismal call to love, especially as modeled in the evangelical counsels of poverty, chastity, and obedience is introduced in Chapter 1, Your Christian Identity. Chapters 2 and 3 follow by exploring the roots of two more radical vocational choices: the ordained priesthood and religious life. Each chapter traces the rootsof these vocations, points out the challenges and rewards, and presents in a straightforward manner the requirements and process for recognizing the call, responding to the call, and preparing formally for life as a priest, sister, or brother. The text also delves into the very committed vocation to the single life and explores the many Church ministries undertaken by single adults today.Four chapters of Called to Love are devoted to long-range and immediate preparations for marriage. Explanations and implications of issues like dating, courtship, sexuality, commitment, engagement, and wedding planning are each explored from a Catholic Christian perspective.
