Live Jesus in Our Hearts

New! Live Jesus in Our Hearts: see how we're reframing framework.We’re reframing framework for a new generation, where they’ll dive into Scripture!

 

"Live Jesus in Our Hearts" is a prayer said daily by Lasallians all over the world. Our new high school religion curriculum reflects this prayer, and our mission—that every young person would invite Jesus’ presence into their hearts. We sought to begin answering the needs of today’s youth, in a generation where the spiritual and religious landscape has shifted dramatically.

In Live Jesus in Our Hearts, we've created a space to wrestle with important faith and life questions, while digging deeply into Scripture and the teachings of the Catholic Church. A Focus Question launches each unit and chapter, which then build the knowledge and skills students need to respond in faith. Guided by activity-rich and seamless teacher guides, the curriculum also ensures that all Framework points are addressed—it has received the declaration of conformity!

We’re setting a new standard.

Morality and God’s Love studies Christian morality, starting with its biblical foundations. Drawing on texts from both Old and New Testaments, it shows that Christian morality is rooted in the sacredness of the human person and Christ’s Law of Love. Inspired by Jesus’ teaching in the Sermon on the Mount, the student book explores the important values that underlie each of the Ten Commandments: faith, reverence, holiness, respect, honesty, integrity, justice, the sacredness of life. To drive these values home, each chapter includes an excerpt from Pope Francis’s teaching on the Ten Commandments and a short case study inviting students to apply these values to their life.

The Paschal Mystery and the Gospels continues the series commitment to combine the Framework content points with Scripture reading and exegesis. While exploring the meaning of Jesus’ passion, death, Resurrection, and Ascension, the course takes a deep dive into the Gospel accounts of these events. The text helps students explore and analyze the similarities and differences between the four Gospels accounts of these events. In the process, you will help the students arrive at a deeper understanding of Christ’s saving mission.

The Church Foundations and Mission continues the series commitment to combine the Framework content points with Scripture reading and exegesis. The course studies the Church’s mission by exploring its foundations, images, and structure. At the same time, the course takes a deep dive into the Gospel of Matthew, the Gospel of the Church. The words and actions of Jesus in Matthew help lead to a deeper understanding of what it really means to be “church.”

What people are saying about Live Jesus in Our Hearts

It is AMAZING!

It is AMAZING! The student texts are easy to read, relatable, and reaches students where they are at. The vocabulary terms are clearly defined and the main concepts from each unit are in line with the Bishop's objectives. The teacher's manual is OUTSTANDING. Being able to download and manipulate the presentations, quizzes, tests, and worksheets saves teachers an immense amount of time and the activities are fun, academic, and promote faith growth. SMP will always be my number one choice for high school texts. Thank you for allowing me to teach minds and touch young hearts through your materials!

Review by Brittany, Arizona

I find it a great foundation on which to build a theology course. The textbook is attractive and readable, while remaining faithful to the Church and providing a solid theology to students. The use of Scripture connects students to the Christian tradition that is both rich and life-giving.

Review by Roger, MN

We are currently using “Revelation & the OT” for the first time this year. We are thrilled with how approachable it is by such a wide range of levels. It is such a refreshing text. The perspectives offered give students an opportunity engage theologically deep topics in a developmentally appropriate way. Thank you!

Review by Marie, DE

So happy with these texts: My students are engaged, apply the reading to their life, and are able to comprehend the Catholic Faith more easily with the glossary, PowerPoints, Quizlets, and reading questions that follow each chapter. KUDOS!
