What have you learned from these Journey of Faith articles and resources about the Catholic faith tradition.

Since this past September we have journeyed together to learn more about our Catholic faith tradition through our weekly readings of the United States Catholic Catechism for Adults (“USCCA”), published by the Bishops of the United States, together with having the opportunity to review prayers, scripture readings, and other resources provided through videos, music, and documents published on our Parish website. If you journeyed with us during this entire time, we have now finished our weekly readings of the USCCA. You can continue your review and study of the USCCA and other resources that are published in the Archive section of the Journey of Faith page found at www.hrsrchurch.org/journey_of_faith

Some may believe that our journey to learn more about our Catholic faith tradition has ended. In fact, if you ask some young people and adults today, they may tell you that their need to learn more about their faith ended when they received their Sacrament of Confirmation.

Our present, finite existence can never fully know God, who is infinite and eternal Mystery, except to the extent that God has revealed the Godself to us. During our lifetime we may only get limited or partial glimpses, images, insights, or experiences of who God is for us.

Just as a person continues to age from the time of their birth until their physical death, so too, we are called to continually learn to grow in loving and meaningful relationships with God, with one another, with ourselves, and with all of creation that can transform us. It is a lifelong journey that only ends when we are blessed to live eternally with our God and see God “face to face.”

We do not travel alone, but are joined by others along this journey of life. We are guided, nourished, and empowered by the teachings, actions, and life-giving ways of Jesus, Holy Scripture, our Catholic Christian faith Tradition, our personal experiences, the experiences of others, those who journeyed before us, the Sacraments, prayer, and especially by the indwelling Holy Spirit.

Continue to journey with us each week as we next consider various social issues facing us today and the Church’s teachings regarding these social issues.

We invite you to send an email to us at aff@hrsrcs.org and share about any positive experiences or insights you had while reviewing the Journey of Faith articles or other resources; and any constructive suggestions or comments you have for helping us to continue our journey together of learning more about our Catholic faith tradition.
