This versatile four-part DVD can be viewed in any order and at any time in the sacrament preparation process. Three of the stories are directed toward children in grades 2-5 and one is for parents, particularly those preparing a child for first reconciliation.
1.Handle with Care offers children five open-ended stories or moral dilemmas that involve them in discussion about "right and wrong." Its goal is conscience formation and learning to make good moral choices.
2. Kevin's Temptation is based on the gospel encounter between Jesus and the devil. Kevin, like Jesus, is tempted three times, and he has to draw on faith and courage to resist. The goal of this story is to help children understand the concepts of temptation, conscience, and courage.
3. Ricky's First Reconciliation actually walks children through the Rite of Penance so they will feel comfortable making their first reconciliation or celebrating the sacrament at any time.
4. Celebrating Forgiveness takes place in a family home where a discussion is underway about first reconciliation. The father in the family learns from his son that reconciliation is a sacrament of joy and not of fear or embarrassment.
