This video series offers image reflections on key words from the Gospels for the liturgical seasons and major feasts. The images and texts are accompanied by reflective music.
If the video is being used with a group, then the text that appears in purple or yellow is intended to be read out by a student or the Prayer Leader. Instructions for the teacher or Prayer Leader will appear in white italic text.
Following a brief period of reflection on the images, the viewer(s) is invited to relate the text and images to their own life experience through questions, which may be for personal reflection or for group sharing.
The video experience concludes with a prayer and the opportunity to sing a relevant song. Each video runs for approximately 3-5minutes.
We recommend that the teacher view the video before presenting it to the students, to assess the readiness of the students for the video experience. Prepare the students for the video experience by settling them in a prayerful and reflective space before viewing the video and direct them to follow the instructions that are given throughout the video.
When the video concludes allow time for the students to respond to the video experience before moving on with other activities.
