Lesson Overview

Jesus performed many miracles during His time here on earth. Of all of the types of miracles He performed, exorcisms (casting out of demons) perhaps most dramatically show Jesus’ true power over evil. In this lesson, students will examine Christ’s power over evil and that which would harm us.

Lesson Materials


  1. Have students read the Gospel passage for the week and complete the focus questions.
  2. Review and discuss the answers when complete.
  3. Have students read the prayer excerpt from the rite of Exorcism and write a short reaction/reflection in response to it using the questions that follow it as a guide.
  4. When your students have finished, ask for volunteers to share and discuss their responses.
