Practice Makes Catholic - Did you know?

Oh Come All Ye Faithful! Epiphany Sunday Wise men, the scientists of their time, traveling to Bethlehem because they were compelled to search & follow the star. We are called to follow that same star. As people of reason we are asked to put aside reasoning & accept, in faith, that which we can’t see or understand. I have been asked by a scientific person how can I get Faith & my answer was, and is, that you can’t buy it or reason it. You must just accept it because it is a gift. We are celebrating in our hearts the Christ child born among us. We come bearing gifts. We bring our hearts, our minds & our souls. As Christians we are called to bring all that is most precious to us & present it to God. In return we receive the greatest gift of all.
