File 1: Heirs of the Alliance
The first file Heirs of Alliance includes 10 meetings of approximately two hours, which are introduced to the deepening of Psalm 23. It deals with the transmission of the faith from Abraham to the revelation of Jesus Chris, only begotten Son of God. It is a step towards rooting ourselves in our history. By presenting the great biblical figures, the youngster understands that God’s plan is to make a covenant with humanity through the people of Israel and that this covenant finds it fulfillment in Jesus Christ. As a unique person, he is invited to live an eternal covenant with God in Church. The figure of Abraham, the father of believers and that of David, the author of Psalm 23, are particularly elaborate.
At the end of those meetings, the youngster receives “the Shepherd’s bag”, which contains words of God deepened during the meetings.
File 2: The Lord is my Shepherd
The second file The Lord is my Shepherd includes 10 meetings of approximately 2 hours. It is a presentation of Psalm 23, verse by verse, connecting each to different aspects of human and Christian life, from a perspective of personal and ecclesial growth.
Thus, by deepening the verse “The Lord is my shepherd”, the conditions for following Jesus welcomed as the real Shepherd are highlighted. This verse also invites the participant to come into the presence of the Holy Trinity. In order to say “I shall not want”, the youngster discovers the secret of abandonment in the hands of his Shepherd. He lets Jesus free him from all the fear and give him peace to rest on meadows of fresh grass.
At the end of the psalm, the youngster receives a small crook, symbol of the Shepherds.
