Celebrating the Mass Lesson-

Celebrating the Mass Lesson- Lord, Have Mercy (Kyrie Eleison)

Long ago Greek and Latin was spoken. Mass was also said in Latin and part of it was also said in Greek. Now people do not speak Latin and Greek as much as they used to. We now usually celebrate Mass in our own language. Still, it is good to remember the early church and the beautiful Greek and Latin languages. Sometimes the “Lord, have mercy” is sung, sometimes it is said. Sometimes it is said in Greek, sometimes in English. How is it said at your Mass?

We are all standing (have students stand up) and each acclamation is usually repeated twice. During this time the priest will say or sing something and then we repeat what he just said.

(Write this below on the board before class. Write what is in English in one color. Write what is in Greek in another color. Stand in front of the Greek language so the students cannot see it at this time.)

Priest: Lord, have mercy. --------- Kyrie, eleison.

People: Lord, have mercy. -------- Kyrie, eleison.

Priest: Christ, have mercy. -------- Christe, eleison.

People: Christ, have mercy. ------- Christe, eleison.

Priest: Lord, have mercy. ---------- Kyrie, eleison.

People: Lord, have mercy. --------- Kyrie, eleison.


Say to the students and point to each line accordingly: We are all standing during the “Lord, have mercy”. The priest says, “Lord, have mercy.” What do we say, (“Lord, have mercy.”). Then the priest says, “Christ, have mercy.” What do we say? (“Christ, have mercy.”). Then the priest says, “Lord, have mercy.” What do we say? (“Lord, have mercy.”)

Say to the students: “Lord, have mercy” is in English. What would the priest say in Greek? (Move out of the way so the students can see what is on the board. Point to what the priest says and help the students pronounce each part correctly. Go through each line and help students pronounce the words in Greek.)

Say: I will now say what the priest would say in Greek and I want you to repeat what I say in Greek just like you would in Mass. (Point to what the students should say in Greek.)

*Then ask students questions from the lesson.



Celebrating the Mass Activity-


The activity below is free, however it can only to be used for classroom and personal use. It may not be published on any websites or other electronic media, or distributed in newsletters, bulletins, or any other form or sold for profit.



Lord, Have Mercy- Have the students trace the letters. When they have finished students read worksheet out loud in class by taking turns.



Lesson Plan-

Moses Leads his People out of Egypt and go over vocabulary words with students. Read story: “Moses Leads his People out of Egypt” The Usborne Children's Bible by Heather Amery and ask questions from Take Home Sheet that will be sent home today. Note: When I read the story to the students I usually sit in the chair in the corner by the board and have the students sit on the floor in front of me. After the students have answered the questions about the story, I have them go back to their seats to continue with what is on the lesson plan (activity, craft, game, puzzles/worksheets, etc.).



Introduce craft: What plague hopped into all the Egyptian’s homes?

tlc.howstuffworks.com- Puddle Jumping Frog

*I adjust this craft for my students and this is what we do to make it extra fun:



Cut the frog out of dark green construction paper instead of felt. Use light green construction paper for spots on the frog’s back. Follow directions above but omit using any chenille stems. You can also use dark and light green crayons to color on the frog for that added touch. For a fun tongue tape a red party blower under the frog. Blow party blower and watch the frog’s tongue try to catch flies. (I didn’t have any poms so I just used a couple of white hole reinforcements that were self-sticking that can be put on paper. I then colored in the hole with black to make the eyes.)


Introduce craft: What did Moses do at the Red Sea so the Hebrews could escape from the Egyptians?



Crossing the Red Sea Story Wheel (Bible Wheels to Make and Enjoy by Carmen Sorvillo, page 19 & 20). Students are given the story wheel to color and put together. Then they turn their story wheel dial to retell the Bible story they learned over and over again. (There are 5 different views to this Story Wheel.)



One Page Bible Story-

lambsongs.co.nz- “Moses Came To The Red Sea” by Jill Kemp

Have students read the mini book out loud in class by taking turns (each read a page) and take home to read to their parents. Students can also color mini book.



Game- Introduce game: What kinds of plagues happened when the Pharaoh (King) would not let the slaves go?



Leaping Frogs- (file folder game)




Puzzles & Worksheets- While students are doing puzzles/worksheets, etc. they may say a prayer. Students are asked to recite 5 prayers by the end of the year. A “We Know Our Prayers” chart is on the bulletin board. If the student can recite the prayer correctly, write the date on the chart, and they get to pick a prize from the prize bag.

Sea Crossing- Hidden Pictures: Explore Hidden Treasures in God’s Word Grade 1-3 by Linda Standke, page 7



Homework- Give each student a Moses Leads his People out of Egypt Take Home Sheet for their parents to go over with them to review what we have done in class. Parents need to help their child fill this out and bring back to class the following week. Students that complete their homework and bring it back to class will be able to play Homeworkopoly. Each Sunday the students make a mini story book and/or story wheel in class. Students need to read these to their parents (or the parents read to them) the mini book and/or story wheel for homework.



What will you do in your classroom or home? Please comment so I can add the link to your blog to this post. We would love to see what you do!
