01 Life Of Faith
The gift of Christian faith transforms our mind and the heart. It enables us to encounter God who loves us as a member of his holy people.
02 God Speaks To Us
We find our meaning when we come to know God who reveals Himself in Jesus. The Bible reveals the One true God who is a unity of three Divine Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
03 Jesus Christ
The Christian Gospel is not an idea or philosophy. It is a person with a name and a face: Jesus of Nazareth, who died and rose from the dead that we might have the fullness of life.
04 The Catholic Church
The Catholic Church is God’s Household on earth. Established and commissioned by Jesus with his authority, the Church is teacher, home and mother for all her children.
05 God’s Life In Us
The life of Jesus comes to his disciples through the Sacraments. In the Sacraments of Baptism and Confirmation we are reborn and recreated in the image of Christ by the Spirit.
06 The Mass
Holy Mass – the Celebration of the Eucharist – is the central action of Christian worship and community. It was given by Jesus on the night before he died: “do this in memory of me”.
07 Sacraments Of Healing
The Sacraments of Reconciliation and Anointing of the Sick are Sacraments of Healing. By these Sacraments Jesus forgives our sins and brings spiritual healing to the sick and dying.
08 Love & Marriage
Love, marriage and family are God’s plan for most men and women. Self giving married love between a husband and wife enriches their union with each other, their children and God.
09 Life Of A Christian
The Gospel invites us to become more like Jesus: to be open, receptive and obedient to God who loves us. This is the call to holiness. We are pilgrims on this spiritual journey.
10 Life Forever
The four last things that confront human beings are: Death, Judgement, Heaven and Hell. Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life who guarantees our destiny and victory in Himself.
