Image of God second edition, Who Loves Me Always? is a curriculum for second grade students preparing them for the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Holy Eucharist. As a Perform-a-text, the student textbook combines text and activity in one book. Clear, comprehensive and interesting presentation of the Catholic Faith based on seven key concepts: God, Creation, Christ, Church, Grace, Sacraments and Commandments. Stories from Scripture and the lives of the saints give students Catholic role models and examples of living the faith.
The lessons emphasize God’s mercy and love through the story of salvation history, the coming of Jesus as our Savior, and through the Sacraments as meetings with Jesus. Through imitating the various saints’ lives that are studied, the students see how they can act as images of God. Special focus is given to understanding the parts of the Mass and participating fully in the celebration of the Mass. The lessons are complimented by colorful illustrations.
