CATHOLIC FAITH AT HOME RESOURCES
SEPT. 20

KNOWLEDGE THAT SAVES!!

St. Irenaeus of Lyons wrote in the 2nd century
about the
importance of
preserving
the deposit of faith.

He saw that the errors faced by the Church in his time
were easily traceable to key figures at key times,
who brought their new and controversial ideas to Christianity.

The faith of the Church can be traced
to Jesus Christ Himself,
and the successors of the apostles are charged
to guard that faith against error until His return.

There are errors in our time too!

We must stay close to
the Catechism of the Catholic Church
and
the definitive Teachings of the Magisterium
to form our consciences and to find the knowledge that saves!

Did you know?...
When we intentionally do not follow the teachings of God
as given to, and preserved by, the Catholic Church,
not out of weakness but because out of a lack of belief in them,
then we are not living our Catholic faith.

If we choose what to follow and what to ignore,
then we follow the religion of "Me" and make ourselves gods,
denying the reality and supremity of
God Who has revealed Himself to us.

ONLINE BIBLE STUDY
BOOK OF SAMUEL

Now available with Online Streaming!

Study FIRST SAMUEL,
one of the most pivotal books of the Old Testament,
while socially distancing.

The book of Samuel chronicles a
pivotal period in the story of salvation history,
when the era of the judges was coming to a close and
Samuel, the last of the judges and the first prophet,
becomes the instrument by which God
transitions Israel from a confederation of tribes to a kingdom.

The Throne of David is established as a new institution, one that would
usher in the long-awaited Messiah,
the anticipated Lord and Savior,
ensuring he would be known and recognized when he came.

40 Days for Life

Beginning on September 23,
people across the world

to lift voices in prayer for the women and men who enter,

do so peacefully in the spirit of hope that someday
