Connecting the Dots

  

“Connect-the-dots” is a tagline used to explain the joining of scripture based homilies to one or more Catholic Catechism elements in an environment which recognizes the unique beauty of Catholicism.    The phrase is intended as a way (but certainly not the only way) to draw attention to fact that   Catholicism is the one true Church founded by Jesus Christ Himself.  One should understand two basic premises in order to accept the legitimacy of “connecting the dots”.

What Can I DO?

Catholic Complacency exists because it’s been allowed to; perhaps even cultivated by those entrusted with helping us gain our salvation. 

Great leadership combats Complacency!   So, what can ordinary good lay people do?  Click here for a short list for your consideration.

            

Pray….for an end to abortion and the return of a Culture of Life in our country and for the return of fallen away Catholics.  These are the product of 21st Century Complacency. 

 

Pray…For an increase in wisdom and courage for all Catholic Clergy, that may inspire the faithful and satisfy their vocation objective of “Saving Souls”.

 

Know your Faith…Study the catechism and understand that it is based in Scripture, Catholic Tradition, and the Magisterium of the Church.  Subscribe to Catholic Publications, Internet sights etc.  We particularly favor EWTN, Relevant Radio etc.

 

Get to know your parish priests better.  Listen more attentively to their Sunday homilies.  How often does the celebrant/deacon relate the Catechism to the Sunday scripture readings?  Does the homily “connect the dots” to Catholicism?  Ask yourself this question:  If this homily were given inside a protestant church, would anyone know if was intended for Catholics?  

 

Get to know your Bishop.  Your Diocesan newspaper is an excellent resource for learning how passionate he is, or is not, for the Pro Life Cause and for Catholicism in particular.   Does he emphasize ‘Christianity’ more so than ‘Catholicism’? 

 

Understand your duties as a lay person.  We are called to evangelize, even within our faith community.  Read Sections 897 through 913, particularly paragraph 900, within Part I of the Catechism.  Checkout the cross-referenced Scripture verses.

 

Consider starting or being part of a 4C group in your parish.  The effort is minimal; the results can be culture … and SOUL … changing!  See the TAB, Volunteering, for more information.

 

Consider sending a tax-deductible donation.  (We are 501C-3 certified.)   Help us meet our expenses related to the website, supplies, postage etc.  We are ALL Volunteers. We have no paid employees
