  • Dynamic Catholic, Alive! Gratitude

    Sometimes life actually does get better! And when it does, we may feel great relief - for just a while. Then the better be-comes the new normal and we actually forget to express our gratitude to God for our blessings. Its so easy to forget, but we have many ways to remember - we can take time for adoration of God, for talking to God through prayer, and for intentional self-sacrifice that expresses our thankfulness and praise. For-get not all Gods blessing! (Catechism of the Catholic Church 2095-2100)

    Vocation Prayer Chalice

    Claude & Jeanette Harris

    This time of the year, between political ads, TV news commentary endorsing a political candidate by the way they report the news, and various political power packs pushing indi-vidual political candidates, it is important to ask ourselves, How should I vote as a Catholic? There are many groups with pamphlets who try to influence us with their thoughts. I think it is important for us to remind ourselves that Archbishop Carlson is the teaching authority in the ways of our Catholic faith here in the Archdiocese of St. Louis. He has written several articles on viewing election issues through the lens of faith. These have been published in the St. Louis Re-view. In case you missed them, I have complied three articles from the St. Louis Review as an insert in this weeks bulletin. Even if you have read them before, it is certainly worth reading again. In fact, read it several times. Let us pray for each other this week.

    Stewardship Awareness Has none but this foreigner returned to give thanks to God? Luke 17:18 Most of us live easy lives. We have food, shelter and clothing. We go on vacation every year and own a car or two. Most of us take this all for granted. Did you ever notice that people with the least amount of possessions are usually the most grateful? Shouldnt this be the other way around? Take time every day and thank God for all He has given you.
