David LinsCatholic Thoughts

We Are Broken

04-23-2017David Lins

We are broken. We don’t like to talk about it. We don’t even like to think about it. But you and I? We are broken.

Maybe something we have done or have failed to do has shaped our family in a way it was never supposed to be formed. Maybe our own flaws manifest themselves at the wrong moment and a relationship was forever wounded. Maybe we just feel tired of trying and failing so we have become hopeless.

We are broken. But our Lord is risen. And this matters because in today’s Gospel, the risen Jesus tells us not to fear. Then, He gives us the Holy Spirit. Finally, He gives us the gift of reconciliation.

This is precisely what broken people need.

Religious Education-An Important Message to Parents of School-Age Children

Many parents today are confused about the requirements and timing for their children to make their sacraments.

The process has changed several times over the decades and may be different than what a parent or even a child’s older sibling has experienced. Therefore, it is important that parents of school-age children understand the current process, known as Restored Order.
