  • PRAYER FOR ENGLAND

    We come to you, most holy Virgin. We are children of England, your dowry. Keep us faithful to the Gospel of Jesus your Son. Keep us in the unity of the Catholic faith and the power of hope.

    Mother of love, protect all the families of England. Help them to stay together. Give them the happiness of loving and passing on life.

    You are the Mother of Christ, our Saviour. Open our hearts to people who are suffering. May each of us offer signs of friendship and welcome to people who are less well off than us.

    Faithful Virgin, help us in our lives. Help us to choose the way in life that Jesus wants us to follow. May we face the problems of life today, together with people of other Churches and religions.

    You praised the great things done by the Lord. You sang about how God kept his promises to the people of Israel. We bless you because you believed in the Word of God and in his Love which lasts for ever and ever.

    Amen.

    Our Lady of Walsingham, pray for us.

We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Sharing the riches of our Catholic Faith.

 

This week welcomed the two introductory programmes to be used in the coming Year of Faith: Evangelium and Catholicism.

Evangelium : Jesus said,“Go into all the world and preach the gospel to the whole creation.” If we are to fulfil Christ’s command to preach the gospel to the people of own time, we must first attain a comprehensive and authentic knowledge of the Catholic Faith. For this reason, the Second Vatican Council encouraged lay people to “devotedly strive to acquire a more profound grasp of revealed truth.”2 Furthermore, this striving for deeper knowledge benefits our own salvation as well as that of others. Jesus tells us, “Eternal life is this: to know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.”

To attain deeper knowledge, however, requires good teaching. Such teaching needs to communicate authentic Catholic truth in effective and inspiring ways. Yet the provision of such resources is a challenge. Our society is suffering from an ‘educational emergency’ 4 and “the failure of catechesis, over the past three decades, to provide a sufficiently solid and integral presentation of the doctrine and practice of the Catholic faith.” 5 Yet there are also many opportunities today. New technologies, for example, have greatly facilitated communications, especially of beautiful images that illuminate the eternal truths of the gospel.

The Evangelium project has been established to provide resources to address these challenges and benefit from these opportunities. ‘Evangelium’ is the Latin word for ‘gospel’, a word expressing both proclamation of the faith and fidelity to the Catholic tradition. In partnership with the Catholic Truth Society, the project published the EVANGELIUM catechetical course in 2006, principally to assist parish catechesis. In 2007, the CREDO pocket catechismwas published as a tool for mission and ready reference. In 2008, a firstsummer conference for young people was held to assist in explaining the faith in the modern world. In 2009, the APOLOGIA pocket apologetics booklet was published as a tool for answering difficult questions about the faith. Future plans include the development of a DVD version of the EVANGELIUM course, a post-RCIA course on Church history and a course for teenagers preparing for Confirmation. (Quoted from the website)

Last night we watched the 6th of the 10 episodes contained in the Catholicism series. Everything about the presentation is engrossing from the content to the visual depictions and the glorious music. We spent about 2 minutes at the end of episode listening to the beautiful music. This series includes notes and questions for discussion. These questions  and our responses were discussed afterwards. It starts at 8pm and finishes at 9:30.  An informative evening with lively banter and a great feeling of purpose and invigoration as a Catholic Christian: WE MUST SHARE THE RICHES OF OUR CATHOLIC FAITH!

Here is a taster of Fr. Robert’s teaching style.
