Entry Song A new commandment I give unto you:
that you love one another as I have loved you,
that you love one another as I have loved you.
By this shall all men know that you are my disciples
– if you have love one for another.
By this shall all men know that you are my disciples
– if you have love one for another.
A new commandment I give unto you:
that you love one another As I have loved you,
that you love one another,  as I have loved you.

Dunkeld Gloria :  Glory to God in the highest, peace to his people, peace on earth.

Reading I:   Reading: Wisdom 7:7-11

Psalm 89:  Fill us now with the joy of your love.

Give us wisdom of heart while we live.
Let us see just how short is our life!
Be not angry with our foolish ways.
Show us pity, O Lord, and forgive.
Fill us now with the joy of your love.

In the morning fill us with your love
to rejoice and be glad all our days.
Give us joy that will balance the grief
that we felt when misfortunes were near.
Fill us now with the joy of your love.

May your servants engage in your work,
and our children be graced with your love.
Let your kindness be seen in our lives.
Bring success to the work that we do.
Fill us now with the joy of your love.

Scottish Catholic Education Service: This Is Our Faith  see on the web at www.sces.uk.com/pages/This-is-Our-Faith.html Introduction This is Our Faith provides guidance to teachers on the religious education curriculum which has been developed for children and young people in Catholic schools in Scotland. In publishing this document, the Church is exercising its rights and duty to determine the content of the religious education curriculum in Catholic schools.

The Church invites Catholic schools to use this guidance to shape the learning of children and young people in this key area of the curriculum at all stages of primary education and up to Fourth level in secondary school. Moreover, it encourages teachers to acquaint themselves thoroughly with this guidance so as to enhance their own understanding of the key aspects of Catholic Christianity which they are expected to teach.

This guidance builds on significant experience of teaching programmes which have emerged from the Church’s National Syllabus documents and the 5-14 Religious Education guidelines published by the Catholic Education Commission over the past 20 years. It has been designed to provide guidance on the teaching of the outcomes and school experiences for Roman Catholic religious education, published as part of the Scottish Government’s Curriculum for Excellence framework.

Sources:  The key sources of This is Our Faith are Sacred Scripture and Tradition (expressed in the teaching documents of the Church), the Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC) and the General Directory for Catechesis (GDC) which are referenced throughout the document.
