TAKE FIVE FOR FAITH: Daily renewal for busy Catholics 1/22/2012

Citing of the Week

"To what degree must we admit that the problem side of things is profoundly related even to what gives life in a particular situation? How many of us know someone whose very gifts are tied up with what makes them difficult at times?"

Discipleship 101
How did you begin your journey as a follower of Jesus? Perhaps your parents saw to your baptism, although some make that decision later in life. Others had the advantage of a Catholic education or religious instruction that was parish-based. Many had special mentors in the faith: priests and sisters, grandparents or siblings, friends or teachers whose love and example made Christianity both credible and attractive. Consider how to give the gift of faith to children. You, too, can be a spiritual mentor!
