Another great series from GoodCatholic.com. “When someone walks into your house, do they immediately know that you’re Catholic? Can they tell from the items in your home and from the way you speak and behave that Christ is at the center of your life? Too often we turn off our faith when we exit church on Sunday. And yet, it’s those other six days of the week that really challenge us to grow in faith.” It’s a 21-day series – about 20 minutes per day.
“I meet tens of thousands of people a year at different events. Most of them are Catholic Christians who want to start reading the Bible but don’t know where to start.
So if you’ve ever wanted to go deeper into God’s Word but haven’t known how to approach it, allow me to suggest a few tips (so you can learn from my mistakes).”
“The doctrine of the Assumption of Mary began with a historical event to which Scripture alludes and that been believed in the Church for 2,000 years. It was passed down in the oral tradition of the Church and developed over the centuries, but it was always believed by the Catholic faithful.”
“First, in discussing the assumption, the Catechism affirms that Mary did not suffer from original sin but was conceived full of grace. According to this doctrine, known as the Immaculate Conception, God’s supernatural life dwelt in Mary from the very beginning of her existence.”
“God is calling us, each one of us, to embrace a new identity, to become a band of joyful missionary disciples and witness to the power of the Gospel. Why? Because Jesus Christ is the desire of the nations, and his Gospel is the answer to the deepest desires of the human heart.” Unleash the Gospel is a wonderful evangelical letter written by Archbishop Vigneron and is the foundational document for the magazine, podcast and articles on this website.
