Passing the Faith

In life, every day leads us to new horizons. We are constantly making a multitude of choices. Some are well thought out, mature for a long time and may be life-changing such as the start of a family or a career. Others vibrate to the rhythm of spontaneity. However, silently and discreetly, over time, life goes on and weaves a sacred story, our sacred story. What traces shall we leave behind of what is most important to us, of who we are? overlooked. We rush through life in search of what we are told is indispensable. Along this race, like the sand falling in an hourglass, life passes us by. Too often, we forget that life is the most precious gift of all. Discovery and wonder lead us elsewhere. Particularly for a child and for those who manage to remain so by their attitude, an ever-present yet unsuspected horizon opens up.

Religious Illiteracy: The Need to Know Our Faith

A sad but unfortunately true reality is that as time passes the faithful are becoming increasing less knowledgeable of their faith. Far too many young people are unfamiliar with the basic prayers, especially the Act of Contrition, that were common knowledge in earlier generations. Far too many Catholics, as well, cannot name all seven sacraments and the four evangelists. Possibly most disconcerting of all is the fact, as reported by reputable research institutions, such as the Pew Institute, that possibly thirty percent or more of Catholics do not believe in the real presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist.
