Why are you here? Part 2
Last week I asked the simple question, "Why are you here?". As you might expect, when talking about meeting Christ, there's always more. In the Rite of Acceptance and the Rite of Infant Baptism, there's a follow-up question. After the person answers why they are here (some might answer "Baptism"). They are asked, "What does that bring you?" Now they have to go deeper into the why. So now I ask you a deeper why. "Why is (your first answer) important to you? You can even go deeper still and ask a third"why?" You'll find that the deeper your "why" goes the clearer you'll recognize the voice of the Holy Spirit.
Faithfully, Dave Corder
Say Thank You to Pope Francis!
Our partners at the Catholic Climate Covenant, which leads the US Catholic response to climate change, are discussing the encyclical at the Vatican this summer. At the meeting they will deliver letters of support to Pope Francis.
We'd like to help get 50,000 signatures on the letter - that's 50,000 votes in support of real climate leadership! You can put your name in Pope Francis' hands by signing the letter here.
Faith Formation registrations are ongoing. If this is your child's first year, remember to bring in their baptismal certificate. Times, days and other information can be found by clicking here. http://www.st-anthonys.org/youth-faith-formation
