They reflect upon right relationship with God and creation through prayer, Eucharist and compassionate service as lived by Jesus. Students understand that the basic meaning of the Incarnation of Jesus is that he is at once “divine and human”. The most important implication of the Incarnation is that by God’s love for us, we are becoming what Jesus is – one with the mystery we call “God” – and that this is the work of the Holy Spirit enabling us to grow in love.
