Theology 9

Introduction to Sacred Scripture

This course is designed to familiarize the student with the revealed word of God.  It explains how we come to know Christ, the Word of God, better through both the Old and New Testaments.  The course introduces the student to methods of reading and understanding God’s Word and teaches the student the content and significance of the Old and New Testaments.  The Bible History course offered in 7th & 8th Grade is a helpful pre-requisite to this course.

  • Introduce the student to a devout life in the modern world & the practice of mental prayer
  • Give the student the tools to distinguish between forms of prayer that are compatible with Christianity & those that are not
  • Explain why sanctity & perfection consist in doing “everything to conform to God’s will” as St. Teresa of Avila says, & why that is the highest perfection possible
  • Encourage boundless trust in God, His Divine Providence, His Love, & His Mercy
  • Impart a firm understanding of Christian moral principles & the proper application of Christian moral principles in life situations
  • Impart a greater understanding of the dignity of the human person, freewill, & vocation
  • Foster a deeper admiration of the particular callings within the Church
  • Inspire each student to respond with greater zeal to the Universal Call to Holiness
  • Reveal the beauty & sanctity of Matrimony in the Catholic Church & the benefits & responsibilities of family life
  • Show forth the excellence of religious vocations, their benefits & responsibilities, as well as briefly define the various type of religious vocations in the Church
  • Further the understanding of one’s duties to God, Church, self, spouse, family, state, & society
  • Foster a profound appreciation & understanding of Our Lady, her role in salvation & in our lives
