One of the best things that you can do during the Advent season is to become closer to Christ. A critical step in achieving that goal is learning more about His Catholic Church. Over at the Catholic Truth website, we present a 10-step plan that will allow you to learn more about the Catholic Faith and get closer to its founder, Jesus Christ. Over the next few days, I’ll go into more detail about the various steps. For today’s blog, however, I’ll just list them and invite you to at least consider trying them out:
1. Attend Mass at least every Sunday (or daily, if possible)
2. Receive the Sacrament of Confession on a regular basis
4. Read the Bible
5. Ask the Blessed Mother To Lead You To Jesus
6. Visit Catholic Internet Sites
7. Read Catholic Books and Magazines
8. Make use of Catholic Media
9. Participate in Parish Bible Studies and Adult Education Classes.
10. Email us your questions
As mentioned on our website, these steps are part of a “holistic” approach to learning the Catholic Faith. The benefit to this approach is that, in addition to learning more about the teachings of the Catholic Church, you will also end up closer to Jesus. As I mentioned, I’ll be explaining these steps in greater detail in the next few days. In the meantime, why not make a pledge in the remaining few days of the Advent season to try a few of these steps and see what happens.
