Grade 11/12


Theology of the Pencil

Older adolescents who participate in the 11-12 grade session of the L.I.F.E. program will:

Understand more deeply that God created them to love: “Just as a pencil is made for writing, so a person is made for loving.”

  • Understand more deeply that God created them to love: “Just as a pencil is made for writing, so a person is made for loving.”
  • Review God’s plan for teaching love; grasp the three-circle Venn diagram as an image of the life-long process by which a child matures into a loving adult.
  • Realize that in God’s plan sex has three purposes: to be a sign of married love, to be the method by which new human beings are created, and to strengthen the family love circle where children are taught virtue and responsibility.
  • Recognize that the act of sex is meant to be a sign of the free and permanent committed love relationship called marriage, and that sex outside of marriage is most likely to be exploitative.
  • Realize that the experience of falling-in-love is meant to teach us how to integrate the “two-lines”: the infatuation line that moves from sexual attraction to sexual intercourse, and the authentic love line that moves gradually from friendship to committed love.
  • Use the four key words in The Great Commandment to understand that the process of learning to love includes the integration of feelings (whole heart), intellect (whole mind), choices (whole soul), and actions (whole strength).
