Saints and Scripture Sunday

They called the church together and reported what God had done with them and how he had opened the door of faith.
Acts 14:27

As part of Pope John Paul II’s call to the New Evangelization, and marking the 50th anniversary of the Vatican II council, Pope Benedict has marked the upcoming year as the Year of Faith.

Catholics are asked to renew their Baptismal call, renewing and refreshing their relationship with Christ.

In my own life, this couldn’t have come at a more opportune time. I’m struggling with my faith. I LOVE my faith, but in this very busy season of my life, I’m having a hard time figuring out how to make it fit.

This will serve as a reminder and a wake up call to me to live my faith first. I need to mold my other priorities around my faith, instead of the other way around.

I’ll be using this prayer, compliments of the USCCB.

O God our Father,

in Jesus you call all Christian families and homes

to be signs of living faith.

By the light of the Holy Spirit,

lead us to be thankful for the gift of faith,

and by that gift

may we grow in our relationship with Jesus, your Son,

and be confident witnesses to Christian hope and joy

to all we meet.

In the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.

    Isn’t it funny how God brings these things – like holy years – into our lives when we need them? I’ll say a prayer for you!

    Today is my first day of participating in S&S Sunday, but I’m not seeing the link-up in your post. Here’s my contribution: http://naptimenovelist.com/2012/10/14/god-is-not-stingy/

    I’m so happy that we’re having the Year of Faith, too. Isn’t it funny how God gives us these holy years, just when we need them?

      My site was a bit wonky — I’m not surprised that it got eaten!

      I added you in — thanks so much for stopping by!

      I think I’ll kick off the Year of Faith with a visit to the Adoration Chapel in the morning!

  3. Our faith is tested at times, but strong faith come by exercising it. Be not weary in well doing!
