CATHOLIC FAITH AT HOME RESOURCES
FOR ST. THOMAS MORE PARISHIONERS
JULY 25
 
 
Pope establishes World Day for
Grandparents & the Elderly
 
This year begins its celebration on the 4th Sunday of July,
close to the liturgical memorial of
Saints Joachim and Anne, Jesus' grandparents.
 
Why? The Holy Father said,
“Grandparents are often forgotten,
and we forget this wealth of preserving roots and
passing on” what the elderly have received."
 
The elderly “remind us that old age is a gift
and that grandparents are the link between the different generation,
to pass on to the young the experience of life.”

To incentivize the day, the Pope permitted granting a plenary indulgence, under the usual conditions.

DO YOU KNOW SOMEONE INTERESTED IN
BECOMING CATHOLIC?
 
To become Catholic, those interested participate in the Church's process of Rite of Christian Initiation (RCIA).
 
Designed for both adults and youth (4th grade and up)
not yet baptized or
baptized in another faith denomination or
who never completed the other initiation sacraments,
 
RCIA begins again at St. Thomas More Parish on
Sunday, September 12
at 11:15am in the Faith Formation Room.
 
If you or someone you know is interested,

BACK TO THE TRUTH!!
 
Do you really know what the Church teaches or
do you actually only think you know?
 
James Beamont answers that question.
 
Raised Catholic, James felt that when he graduated from high school, he also graduated from Catholicism.
 
Evangelical Christian friends led him to wrestle with who God was and what that meant for him.
After meeting his wife, Kelli, his faith really took off,
and he engaged in Methodist youth ministry.
 
When some friends became Catholic,
James was deeply disturbed,
trying to talk them out of it.
However, in revisiting the Catholic Church with new eyes, James saw many aspects of Catholicism
that he missed seeing as a cradle Catholic.

HOW BIG IS THE GAP
BETWEEN WHAT YOU KNOW YOU SHOULD DO
AND WHAT YOU DO?
 
In the last hour of your death what are you going to regret?
What are you not going to regret?
 
It is so easy to learn about the Catholic faith today.
But unless we pray, what we learn profits us nothing.
 
By reading on prayer, we might learn about the forgiveness of sins.
By prayer, we ask for God’s mercy and are forgiven.
 
By study, we might learn about God’s love.
By means of prayer, we encounter His love.
 
By study in a book, we may learn about eternal life,
but by prayer we receive it.

THOSE WILLING TO LOVE JESUS
ARE NEEDED FOR
EUCHARISTIC ADORATION
BECOME MORE PERFECT IN PRAYER!
 
Offer when you can be there - if not weekly, then note the frequency when you can be there.
 
Nothing we do is more intimate or more adoring
than receiving Jesus' very Body and Blood of Christ
in holy Communion.
 
And He grants us His Presence physically,
risking abandonment and mishandling
to be near us physically through Eucharistic Adoration.
 
He is not a symbol or Bread - Christ's True Presence IS at Mass and in the consecrated Hosts.
 
HE asked us to visit Him at Church
- for YOUR SAKE - and mine and for all.
 
During Adoration, He is Present in a beautiful monstrance,
Jesus' Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus,
really, truly, and substantially present in the Eucharist.

Jesus needs you and others to
rest with Him in Church on Fridays between 9 and 3
so that STM continues offering Adoration.
