Divine Pedagogy

"Father, teach us to lead good lives, encourage us with your support and bring us to eternal life …." (Mass Prayer)

How does God teach us to live good lives?

These are some of the elements in the divine pedagogy:

  • Word of God
  • The Sacraments, especially the Eucharist and the Sacrament of Reconciliation
  • Family
  • Friends
  • Circumstances

In the divine teaching plan, there are also sticks and carrots. The carrots are the many ways in which God supports or encourages us. Some of them are listed above and others are:

  • Good health
  • Peace
  • Music
  • Books
  • Job
