GOD’s LOVE LETTERS TO US: Presented by Fr. Ren
Do we really need to bother with the Old Testament? What about all those “begats” and the “smiting” stuff? And what are we supposed to do with all those parts that seem to contradict each other? Join Fr. Ren for this discussion of the Church’s method of interpreting the Word of God. This is NOT a bible study, but an overview of the principles that the Church offers for unlocking the infinite rich layers of significance when encountering God in the Bible. Join us from 6:30-8:00 pm in the hall on 3 consecutive Wednesday evenings (February 1st, 8th, 15th).
THE CATECHISM IN A YEAR… AND POPES TOO!
As we begin a new year, why not begin a new way of expanding our Catholic faith in a clear, concise, and easy-to-understand way? In 1992, Pope John Paul II promoted the well-known, precise and ‘many-paged’book entitled Catechism of the Catholic Church. For many of us, to undertake reading this book is an overwhelming task, and we miss out on the richness it has to offer. So, in 2002, the Holy Father, in his wisdom, instructed that a composition of the catechism be prepared. This work was entrusted to a Commission of Cardinals, presided over by the then Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, better known to us today as Pope Benedict XVI. In the announcement of its publication, Pope Benedict described the Compendium of the Catechism of the Catholic Church as “A faithful and sure synthesis of the Catechism of the Catholic Church.” He stated that the work “contains, in concise form, all the essential and fundamental elements of the Church’s faith.” The Compendium is structured in 4 parts, and consists of 598 questions and answers. We invite you to read this wonderful work of our faith. By visiting [HERE] you can sign up to have one email a day (Monday – Friday), which will carry you through the catechism in a year. And don’t let your quest for knowledge stop here! Do you know your popes!? We know the current pope traces his authority all the way back to the first pope (St. Peter). But do you know much about all the popes in between? Join us on a journey from St. Peter all the way to Pope Francis. Each weekday morning, we'll send you a short, engaging 2-minute mini-bio about one pope. By the end of the year, you'll know something about every single one!
