Habakkuk 1:1-4 2:1-4
1:1 The oracle that the prophet Habakkuk saw.

1:2 O LORD, how long shall I cry for help, and you will not listen? Or cry to you "Violence!" and you will not save?

1:3 Why do you make me see wrong-doing and look at trouble? Destruction and violence are before me strife and contention arise.

1:4 So the law becomes slack and justice never prevails. The wicked surround the righteous-- therefore judgment comes forth perverted.

2:1 I will stand at my watchpost, and station myself on the rampart I will keep watch to see what he will say to me, and what he will answer concerning my complaint.

2:2 Then the LORD answered me and said: Write the vision make it plain on tablets, so that a runner may read it.

2:3 For there is still a vision for the appointed time it speaks of the end, and does not lie. If it seems to tarry, wait for it it will surely come, it will not delay.

2:4 Look at the proud! Their spirit is not right in them, but the righteous live by their faith.

Psalm 119:137-144
119:137 You are righteous, O LORD, and your judgments are right.

119:138 You have appointed your decrees in righteousness and in all faithfulness.

119:139 My zeal consumes me because my foes forget your words.

119:140 Your promise is well tried, and your servant loves it.

119:141 I am small and despised, yet I do not forget your precepts.

119:142 Your righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and your law is the truth.

119:143 Trouble and anguish have come upon me, but your commandments are my delight.

119:144 Your decrees are righteous forever give me understanding that I may live.

Isaiah 1:10-18
1:10 Hear the word of the LORD, you rulers of Sodom! Listen to the teaching of our God, you people of Gomorrah!

1:11 What to me is the multitude of your sacrifices? says the LORD I have had enough of burnt offerings of rams and the fat of fed beasts I do not delight in the blood of bulls, or of lambs, or of goats.

1:12 When you come to appear before me, who asked this from your hand? Trample my courts no more

1:13 bringing offerings is futile incense is an abomination to me. New moon and sabbath and calling of convocation-- I cannot endure solemn assemblies with iniquity.

1:14 Your new moons and your appointed festivals my soul hates they have become a burden to me, I am weary of bearing them.

1:15 When you stretch out your hands, I will hide my eyes from you even though you make many prayers, I will not listen your hands are full of blood.

1:16 Wash yourselves make yourselves clean remove the evil of your doings from before my eyes cease to do evil,

1:17 learn to do good seek justice, rescue the oppressed, defend the orphan, plead for the widow.

1:18 Come now, let us argue it out, says the LORD: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be like snow though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool.

Psalm 32:1-7
32:1 Happy are those whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.

32:2 Happy are those to whom the LORD imputes no iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no deceit.

32:3 While I kept silence, my body wasted away through my groaning all day long.

32:4 For day and night your hand was heavy upon me my strength was dried up as by the heat of summer. Selah

32:5 Then I acknowledged my sin to you, and I did not hide my iniquity I said, "I will confess my transgressions to the LORD," and you forgave the guilt of my sin. Selah

32:6 Therefore let all who are faithful offer prayer to you at a time of distress, the rush of mighty waters shall not reach them.

32:7 You are a hiding place for me you preserve me from trouble you surround me with glad cries of deliverance. Selah

2 Thessalonians 1:1-4, 11-12
1:1 Paul, Silvanus, and Timothy, To the church of the Thessalonians in God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ:

1:2 Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

1:3 We must always give thanks to God for you, brothers and sisters, as is right, because your faith is growing abundantly, and the love of everyone of you for one another is increasing.

1:4 Therefore we ourselves boast of you among the churches of God for your steadfastness and faith during all your persecutions and the afflictions that you are enduring.

1:11 To this end we always pray for you, asking that our God will make you worthy of his call and will fulfill by his power every good resolve and work of faith,

1:12 so that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Luke 19:1-10
19:1 He entered Jericho and was passing through it.

19:2 A man was there named Zacchaeus he was a chief tax collector and was rich.

19:3 He was trying to see who Jesus was, but on account of the crowd he could not, because he was short in stature.

19:4 So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore tree to see him, because he was going to pass that way.

19:5 When Jesus came to the place, he looked up and said to him, "Zacchaeus, hurry and come down for I must stay at your house today."

19:6 So he hurried down and was happy to welcome him.

19:7 All who saw it began to grumble and said, "He has gone to be the guest of one who is a sinner."

19:8 Zacchaeus stood there and said to the Lord, "Look, half of my possessions, Lord, I will give to the poor and if I have defrauded anyone of anything, I will pay back four times as much."

19:9 Then Jesus said to him, "Today salvation has come to this house, because he too is a son of Abraham.

19:10 For the Son of Man came to seek out and to save the lost."

World Leaders Adopt Declaration Promising Safer, More Resilient World for Future Generations, as General Assembly Marks United Nations Seventy-Fifth Anniversary

Networked Multilateralism Crucial for Tackling Climate Change, Growing Poverty, COVID-19 Outbreak, Speakers Stress in Day- Long Debate

In a high-level meeting to commemorate the seventy-fifth anniversary of the United Nations, world leaders in the General Assembly gathered in a virtual format today to adopt a declaration honouring the multilateral framework put in place by its founders in 1945 and pledging to better live out the promise to save succeeding generations from the scourge of war.

Titled “Declaration on the commemoration of the seventy-fifth anniversary of the United Nations,” the text lays out 12 succinct commitments to reanimate global resolve: leave no one behind, protect the planet, promote peace, abide by international law, place women and girls at the centre, build trust, improve digital cooperation, upgrade the United Nations, ensure sustainable financing, boost partnerships, work with youth, and, finally, be prepared.

“We are not here to celebrate,” world leaders said, through the declaration. “Our world is not yet the world our founders envisaged 75 years ago.”

In fact, it is plagued by growing poverty, hunger, terrorism, climate change — and now, the epic onset of COVID-19, they recalled. People are forced to make dangerous journeys in search of safety. Least developed countries are falling behind “and we still have not achieved complete decolonization”, they stressed.

“Our challenges are interconnected and can only be addressed through reinvigorated multilateralism,” they emphasized. Acknowledging that COVID-19 caught them off-guard, they agreed it has served as a wake-up call for improving preparedness. “What we agree today, will affect the sustainability of our planet as well as the welfare of generations for decades,” they said, committing to uphold the declaration in the spirit of “We the Peoples”.

The adoption followed a clarion call by United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres to preserve the longest period in modern history without a military confrontation among the world’s major Powers. “This is a great achievement of which Member States can be proud,” he said, addressing an Assembly Hall sparsely populated, due to pandemic safety restrictions. “A third world war — which so many had feared — has been avoided.”

Yet, there is still so much to be done, he stressed. Gender inequality is the “greatest single challenge to human rights around the world”. The climate calamity looms. Poverty is rising. Hatred is spreading. And nuclear weapons remain on hair‑trigger alert. “We can only address them together,” he said. An interconnected world requires a networked multilateralism, in which the United Nations, international financial institutions, regional organizations, trading blocs and others work together more closely and effectively.

Along similar lines, newly elected Assembly President Volkan Bozkir (Turkey) acknowledged that without the continued commitment to multilateralism, “we would not be sitting here today”. He congratulated Governments for their strong efforts to strengthen coordination and good governance towards a common future.

“Multilateralism is not an option, but a necessity,” he insisted. The world is changing dramatically and an upgraded United Nations must both adapt and stay relevant. He urged Governments to support the Organization as it evolves into a more agile, accountable institution, maintaining its fitness for purpose. “The United Nations is only as strong as its members and the commitment to its ideals,” he stressed.

Addressing that point head-on, four young leaders then took the floor, peppering Heads of State and Government about their political will to uphold the values they profess. “We have a few questions for you,” said Akosua Adubea Agyepong, youth representative from Ghana. “Have you all remained true to the UN Charter?” For centuries, the world has dealt with the silent pandemic of sexual and gender-based violence. Sharifah Norizah, a young social entrepreneur from Malaysia, similarly stressed that “youth shouldn’t be counted just to complete quotas in a tokenistic manner”. She called for concrete actions to support those who are systematically left behind, especially youths with disabilities.

Charles Hamilton, a young climate change advocate from the Bahamas, agreed that young people had inherited crises despite having made a minimal contribution to these problems. “The game feels rigged,” he said. “Are you uncomfortable?” With a similar frankness, Nathan Méténier, a climate youth activist from France, asked: “When Brazil is in flames, when Sudan is underwater, when the largest iceberg has just broken off the Greenland shelf, what world are you leaving us?”

The tone set the stage for a wide-ranging general debate that heard more than world leaders describe their priorities and responsibilities for bequeathing a safer, more resilient planet for future generations. In pre-recorded remarks delivered to the virtual event, almost all affirmed the values of peace, freedom, equal rights and human dignity.

Mohamed Irfaan Ali, President of Guyana, speaking for the “Group of 77” developing countries and China, said the pandemic highlighted the bottlenecks faced by developing countries, ranging from insufficient financing and high debt to restricted access to medical supplies. “We must do everything we can to fulfil our obligations to the peoples of this world,” he said, calling for accelerated implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

On that point, Lazarus Chakwera, President of Malawi, speaking for the Group of Least Developed Countries, said United Nations reforms will be critical to achieving that aim. If the pandemic continues, global poverty will reach 8.8 per cent, the first such rise in many years. Gender gaps and the digital divide must be addressed and financing provided to help those furthest behind.

Moon Jae-In, President of the Republic of Korea, also speaking for Mexico, Indonesia, Turkey and Australia, highlighted the bridging role played by the five countries in the face of the COVID‑19 pandemic. He called for equitable access to vaccines and therapeutics.

“No one could have imagined that 2020 would have arranged such a powerful crash test for the world,” said Volodymyr Zelensky, President of Ukraine. Regrettably, the twenty-first century is filled with conflict. “Peace and prosperity remain the values people are shedding blood for,” he said. “Do we need more bloody lessons to rethink our being on this planet?”

Ilham Heydar Oglu Aliyev, President of Azerbaijan, speaking on behalf of the Non-Aligned Movement, echoed a call for reform heard throughout the day-long meeting. Such steps are needed to ensure that the United Nations and the Security Council are fit to address twenty-first century challenges and modern geopolitical realities.

Abiy Ahmed Ali, Prime Minister of Ethiopia, said that at a time when the world needs global leadership and collective action to tackle increasingly complex challenges, the ongoing standoff in the Security Council is undermining its credibility, demonstrating the need for reform that, among other things, addresses the historic injustice against Africa through adequate representation. At the same time, progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals has also been slowed by COVID-19, with an undeniable burden on African countries requiring a stimulus package for recovery efforts.

Tuilaepa Sailele Malielegaoi, Prime Minister of Samoa, said much must be done to enhance the Organization’s efficiency. However, the United Nations has also achieved much and was vital in supporting Samoa’s journey from its independence until today and in including smaller nations as it shaped a better future. “Our United Nations is a multilateral forum where all contributions count, and Samoa proudly cherishes having a seat at the United Nations table to contribute to our global challenges, being heard and being part of the solution,” he said. “To all our members, let’s capitalize on our ‘unity in diversity’ and work as nations united for the common good of mankind.”

Lotay Tshering, Prime Minister of Bhutan, underlined the importance of working together to address this and future pandemics alongside other global challenges. When the world celebrates the United Nations 100th anniversary, there should be 100 per cent literacy and life expectancy should reach three digits, he said, adding that if the world works together, no task is insurmountable.

Also speaking today were Heads of State and Government, as well as ministers and senior officials.


8. Gun Control Loses Steam

The horrific school shooting in Newtown, Conn. that left 20 children and six adults dead was supposed to have been a turning point for gun control advocates. Riding the collective dismay over the massacre, Democratic Congressional leaders sought to ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines and expand background checks on gun sales. Despite President Obama throwing the full weight of his bully pulpit behind the effort, the bill failed in the Senate in April, with 45 Senators — including four democrats — voting against it. A rough year for gun control advocates got even worse in September when gun rights supporters waged an effort to recall two Colorado state senators who supported state-wide measures expanding background checks. As the National Rifle Association and gun control activists like New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg poured money into the campaign, the vote became a proxy battle for the larger national fight. When the votes were counted in favor of the recall, TIME wrote, “any wind still left in the sails of gun control advocates likely died—at least for now.”Noah Rayman

9:31 a.m.

In an address from Emma Booker Elementary School in Sarasota, Fla., Bush calls the attacks "a national tragedy" and "an apparent terrorist attack on our country."

"I have spoken to the vice president, to the governor of New York, to the director of the FBI, and have ordered that the full resources of the federal government go to help the victims and their families, and to conduct a full-scale investigation to hunt down and to find those folks who committed this act," Bush says.

"Terrorism against our nation will not stand."

1. Introduce all of the liturgical seasons with a calendar of the liturgical year.

Many classrooms have these calendars, often in the shape of a circle, in their classrooms. You can pick one up at your local Catholic bookstore or order them online with your favorite Catholic publisher. Draw attention to this calendar and ask students to point out the colors and times of year for you.

Use a liturgical calendar handout from your textbook or find one online to review the names of the seasons as well. If you have the time, have students color the seasons on their calendars in the correct liturgical color. (Or focus on the colors in step 4 below.)

2. Liturgical year lecture.

Introduce the students to the seasons of the liturgical year by writing a concise definition of each season on the board. Here are the definitions I used when I introduced the seasons to my elementary school students:

  • Advent: Jesus is Coming
  • Christmas: Jesus is Born
  • Ordinary Time (1): Jesus Teaches
  • Lent: Jesus will Die and Rise
  • ThreeDays (Triduum): Jesus Dies
  • Easter: Jesus Rises
  • OrdinaryTime (2): Jesus Teaches

One helpful perspective when introducing the students to the seasons is how each one relates specifically to the life of Jesus Christ. Remember, Jesus is the reason for EVERY season.

Each of these definitions is simplistic, but easy to remember. Depending on the age of your students you may want to add key events (Last Supper, Passion, Ascension, Pentecost, Christ the King) even at this point but remember that you will have time to teach each season in more detail later in the year.

Have the students copy down the seasons and definitions as notes or provide them with a simple graphic organizer (table with two columns).

3. Create liturgical year flashcards.

Cut up 3࡫ notecards in half and give each student seven 3ࡨ.5 cards to create liturgical year flashcards. (I like to conserve note cards and the small size sets them aside from the larger cards they might have for other school classes.) Have the students copy the definitions from the board on their cards. On one side have them write the name of the season. On the other side have them write the definition.

You may also want to have the students complete these cards as you write the definitions on the board.

4. Color the liturgical year flashcards.

With colored pencils or crayons (not markers) color the boarder of the cards in the correct colors. (You might want to substitute white with yellow or gold so they actually have something to color.)

  • Advent: Purple/Pink
  • Christmas: White (Yellow, Gold)
  • Ordinary Time: Green
  • Lent: Purple
  • ThreeDays (Triduum): Red
  • Easter: White (Yellow, Gold)

Here are one my student’s finished cards:

5. Practice and memorize the definitions of the liturgical year with the flashcards.

Match students up in pairs and have them quiz each other on the definitions of the liturgical seasons. Give them five minutes and then have the rotate to another partner. Do this until the students clearly know their definitions. Walk around the room and get a sense for how well they are doing in their groups.

6. Class Assessment: Turn the board into a fill-in-the-blank class activity.

Now, return to the board and erase some words to create a fill-in-the-black quiz. For example, erase and draw a blank line for the following:

  • __________: Jesus is Coming
  • Christmas: Jesus is __________
  • Ordinary Time (1): Jesus __________
  • Lent: Jesus _____ Die and Rise
  • ThreeDays (Triduum): Jesus __________
  • __________: Jesus Rises
  • __________ Time (2): Jesus Teaches

Call on students to fill in the blanks or have them answer them using the Chalk Talk technique.

Repeat the process until you are sure they know their seasons.

7. Test or Quiz

Create a simple matching quiz as a final form of assessment.

Now Go Deeper!

With this foundation created and the recognition that all the seasons relate to specific moments in the life of Christ, you will have prepare them for a more in-depth approach to each of the individual seasons. Or go deeper with the students with any of the activities collected here at The Religion Teacher:


First aid

Basic guidance on first aid for burns is provided below.

What to do

  • Stop the burning process by removing clothing and irrigating the burns.
  • Extinguish flames by allowing the patient to roll on the ground, or by applying a blanket, or by using water or other fire-extinguishing liquids.
  • Use cool running water to reduce the temperature of the burn.
  • In chemical burns, remove or dilute the chemical agent by irrigating with large volumes of water.
  • Wrap the patient in a clean cloth or sheet and transport to the nearest appropriate facility for medical care.

What not to do

  • Do not start first aid before ensuring your own safety (switch off electrical current, wear gloves for chemicals etc.)
  • Do not apply paste, oil, haldi (turmeric) or raw cotton to the burn.
  • Do not apply ice because it deepens the injury.
  • Avoid prolonged cooling with water because it will lead to hypothermia.
  • Do not open blisters until topical antimicrobials can be applied, such as by a health-care provider.
  • Do not apply any material directly to the wound as it might become infected.
  • Avoid application of topical medication until the patient has been placed under appropriate medical care.
