Thanks to the pupils of Douay Martyrs School for trialing these lessons!

Feedback from Yr 8 pupils on the unit "Moral Choices":
- "I liked this unit because we did a lot of discussions and that there was no right answer."
- "it helped me to figure out stuff for myself and to dig deeper into my decisions."
- "I liked the fact that you actually involved yourself and that you could re-evaluate your life."
- "it helped me to understand other people have different ideas about what is right."
- "I enjoyed the subject of conscience because it helped me think about how my mind works and helps me to also see what I am like inside."

Feedback from Year 9 KS3 pupils on the unit "Theology of the Body":

- "I never knew that love and lust meant the complete opposite; I thought they were the same thing."
- "It made me aware if someone would be loving or lustful towards me. It also made me think a lot about my future choices and what I do now".
- "I thoroughly enjoyed this unit because it was fun to learn and I liked the open class discussion".
- "I like the fact that there are relationships out there who don't care about things like sex and they are more focussed on the relationship as a person than wanting to gain something from it".
- "I saw a lot of things in a new light. I found it surprising that my body actually had a meaning to it".


- latin for "what does God want".

Quodvultdeus was a deacon in Carthage, N. Africa, in 421 A.D.  He corresponded with St. Augustine, who dedicated some of his writings to him and served as his spiritual mentor; like Augustine, Quodvultdeus was an opponent of Arianism, the heresy that denied the divinity and co-equality of Jesus with God the Father. 

Quodvultdeus was Bishop at Carthage in 437 A.D. when the city was seized by the Arian King of the Vandals, Geiseric. Quodvultdeus, together with many priests, was exiled. He landed at Naples in Italy, where he continued his ministry, dying in 450 A.D. One of Quodvultdeus' sermons is used for the Office of Readings in the Divine Office on the Feast of the Innocents, Dec 28th:

"Why are you afraid, Herod, when you hear of the birth of a king? He does not come to drive you out, but to conquer the devil. But because you do not understand this, you are disturbed and in a rage, and to destroy one child whom you seek, you show your cruelty in the death of so many children."
