My Friends - I hope to blog more this year. I have moved from my home in Georgia to Sunny Florida all in the pursuit of happiness that is capitalism and opportunity.
We have spent the last 6 months getting established and found a great church community, which we love, and our kiddies are liking their schools.
One of the things I want to focus on is our Catholic faith, and the poor job we have done to evangelize our faith over the last 50 or so years. We have let Hollywood, the media, Protestants and scandal define our faith and we must stop this now. The first thing we have to do is learn more about who we are. Read the Gospels. Jesus was the founder of our Church, we should have an idea of who he is and what he wants us to do. Read books on the saints. Why? Because they lived the Gospel the way our Lord wanted. Some were martyred for their choice to do so. We are all called to be saints, we need to live like saints. Where do we start? With ourselves. Then our households. Then our parishes. Then our communities. Then our nation. Then the world! St. Francis said to preach the Gospel at all times, and if necessary, use words....what are you going to do to help your Church this year and beyond?
Until next time!
