I have been a Catholic all my life, recently my sister who has left the church several years ago decided to try to go back, She is attending a Local church that is not Catholic. They are having a bible study and she asked me to attend with her, I have been going, their bible has 66 books ours has an additional 8 books. I have enjoyed the teaching and love the women in the group, but I am a Catholic,
Why are we never taught to read scripture, and ruminate on it, It really is so uplifting and makes me love mass on Sunday!! I can relate to the readings and the gospel!! I would love for the homily to be used to Teach not for daily announcements and updating us on the finances of the church as a whole, I do understand that it is important to stay abreast of the current happenings especially the Cardinals right now who are facing such a large task, but being rich in scripture will help us pray for them and with them.
Proverbs 3: 5-6
Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight
Wow, isn’t that so powerful, just to communicate with God using his words that were recorded for us to refer to when we are unsure of our path!!!
Thank you Lord for all of your guidance that you are sending us at this time, I ask that you care for these men that have such a difucult task,in picking someone to lead your church!!! We trust in you, your word is the lamp for my feet, a light for my path! Amen
I would love to know why we don’t use apologist’s more often, why don’t we learn how rich scripture is??
