Happy New Year! We all make resolutions at this time of year (even if our resolution is to NOT make resolutions). Here are some resolutions to strengthen our Catholic Faith:
Attend Daily Mass - Schedules are crazy, I know, but we have Mass Monday through Friday at 6:45 and 9:00 AM. What a wonderful way to begin your day!
Deepen your prayer life - Prayer is essential in the life of a Christian. Talk to God throughout the day and spend some quiet time each day listening to God. It changes your life!
Go to confession once a month - It is amazing how frequent confessions helps you realize the need for God’s mercy and grace in your life! It is a great discipline.
Read the Bible - One of the great ways to stay connected to Scripture is to read the readings for Mass each day. You can find these at USCCB.org (there is also an audio version).
Get involved in your parish - Join an organization or ministry! Volunteer! Get involved! You can check out all of our parish ministries here
Pray the Rosary - The rosary is a powerful prayer and is a must for Catholic wishing to grow in their spiritual life! It calms you down and helps you meditate on the mystery of Christ.
Spiritual Reading - Read one spiritual book along with all your reading material. You can borrow some wonderful books from our Lending Library. Or download one to your tablet!
Spend some time in front of the Blessed Sacrament - Make a “visit” to the church each week and just spend time in front of the tabernacle. You will find healing - and rest!
Consider any or all for 2016. Believe me, they can change your life!
God bless you all!
