8 Introductory Lesson (for first day of class) INSTRUCTION Give each student a syllabus for the course and review it with the class. This should include the overall goals of the course and the breakdown of the content by semester, quarter, and week of instruction. It should include major projects and tests. Explain how the lessons of this text will be taught. Explain to the students the cycle of instructional lessons, review lesson, and test day. Give each student an instructional policy for this class and go over it with them. The instructional policies are your classroom behavior and academic policies, including policies for late work, missing work, academic honesty, neatness, and so on. Pass out student texts and Bibles, and any other materials you are providing. If you wish students to read ahead, present the Objectives of tomorrow s first instructional lesson, and let them begin the Homework Assignment if any time remains. HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT Read The Basis for Morality and Introduction through What the Moral Law is Not (pp. 2 6) FOCUS QUESTIONS What is morality and moral law? Morality refers to the standards by which we judge actions to be good or evil. Moral law refers to the standards of human behavior that were established by God and are taught by the Catholic Church. What do the controversies between abortion proponents and pro life advocates reveal? The controversies reveal that, even though the two sides completely disagree, each believes that some kind of moral standard must exist. For example, one side speaks of the right of the unborn child to life. The other speaks of the woman s right to an abortion. What is the difference between an objective and a subjective morality? Objective morality claims that our actions are good or evil independently of what we think about them, whereas subjective morality claims that the moral value of our actions depends on the situation and one s opinion. 2 The Basis for Morality

9 The Basis for Morality and the Introduction (pp. 2 6) LESSON OBJECTIVES GUIDED EXERCISE Put the students into groups of three or four and assign each group one of the five For Discussion questions. One student in each group should be the moderator of the group, another the recorder, and a third the presenter. Give the groups three to five minutes to discuss their question then call on the presenters to briefly share responses. ANTICIPATORY SET Ask the students to respond to the following statement in writing, then ask them to share their responses: Upon hearing the Ten Commandments, a student said, I suppose God is entitled to his opinion, but I am also entitled to mine! Christ s invitation to happiness both now and forever Objective morality versus moral relativism The scope and essence of the moral law The moral law is essential to Christianity BASIC QUESTIONS What is required to accept Christ s invitation to happiness and eternal life? What is the difference between objective morality and moral relativism? What is the essence of the moral law? Why is the moral law essential to Christianity? KEY IDEAS Christ s invitation to share in his life in this world and in the next requires both a faith filled response and a living of that faith by using our freedom to do good. The moral law is the standard of human behavior established by God and taught by the Church. Objective standards of morality are opposed to moral relativism, which claims that moral standards are subjective and may vary according to situation and personal opinion. The moral law is not simply about rules but more importantly about how best to love God and our neighbor in thought, word, and deed. Christianity is about holiness, and good moral behavior is essential to attaining holiness. The Basis for Morality 3

10 GUIDED EXERCISE Conduct a mini lecture on why people tend to equate morality and the Catholic Church with repressive teachings on morality. Since the latter half of the twentieth century, much of the secular culture has been obsessed with sex. In 1950, only a tiny minority of people would have said that premarital sex, adultery, divorce, contraception, pornography, abortion, or homosexual behavior were morally acceptable. In 1950, ideas such as in vitro fertilization (test tube babies), cloning, same sex marriage and adoption of children, and partial birth abortion would have been considered morally unacceptable. While much of our culture has changed, the Catholic Church has maintained her perennial teachings and applied them to new situations that have arisen. These teachings have sometimes been scorned and ridiculed by the media, which accuse the Church of trying to impose its values on others, or to legislate morality. FOCUS QUESTIONS If Christianity is not just about moral precepts, what is it fundamentally about? Christianity is a message of salvation and holiness. What is the relationship between a morality of rules and a morality that includes rules? Christ s morality is not a morality of just rules as if following rules would save you. Rather, it is a morality that includes rules. Moral laws and precepts show us the difference between good and evil and the path we need to follow if we want to please God, achieve true perfection, and obtain salvation. FOCUS QUESTIONS What do some people assume morality is basically about? Many people assume morality is all about issues pertaining to sexuality and marriage. They then conclude morality is nothing but an unnecessary restriction on human freedom. Besides matters of sexual morality, what else does the moral law include? It includes all human behavior that has a moral dimension, including war, health care, economics, poverty, discrimination, calumny, and criminal justice. Where can one find the official presentation of Catholic beliefs and teachings about the moral law? The third section of the Catechism of the Catholic Church. 4 The Basis for Morality
