The Gloria ~ "A Biblical Mosaic"

  
I've been reading a really neat book - A Biblical Walk Through the Mass by Edward Sri - and have been sharing chunks of it with my 12th Grade CCD class.  Chapter 5 shows how The Gloria is saturated with Biblical citations.  I thought this was really neat, and, with the help of the book, created the chart below for my class.  I just want these kids to have a deeper understanding for this prayer and to appreciate the Biblical richness of mass ... before they head off to college next year.  They have seemed pretty surprised and impressed.


Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace to people of good will.

Luke 2:14



We praise you,
