This month for EQUIP Families for Lesson 10, we meet the Third Person of the Blessed Trinity: the Holy Spirit. We will learn about the Spirit’s work from the beginning through the end of time, and how the Spirit’s working in and through the Church is God’s provision for continued leadership and guidance for all believers. Lesson 11 defines the Church, the People of God, and explores the threefold mission of the Church: to teach, sanctify, and govern in Christ’s name and by His power.
Each month, we were to memorize the Apostles’ Creed little-by-little. In the month of March, we are to memorize up to the following portion of the Creed:
“I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried; He descended into hell;on the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God, the Father almighty; from there He will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Catholic Church…”
