As a still fairly-new Catholic, I’ve spent the past several months frustrated by my inability to learn everything about Catholicism at once. It reminds me a lot of how I felt at our recent Thanksgiving feast – so much to eat that even if I just sampled everything I wouldn’t get to it all. Scripture, the Catechism, the lives of the saints, Marian devotion, the daily prayers of the Church, not to mention an ever-growing reading list of books and even blogs about Catholicism – there is just so much to know about our rich and beautiful faith. I really haven’t been successful at even choosing an area on which to focus other than the Sunday readings and my own Scripture reading.
Then a friend told me about a neat opportunity from Flocknote – read the entire Catechism in a year with daily emails delivered right to your phone or computer. For me, this means that I can join thousands of other Catholics in really learning the finer points of the faith right from my smartphone. Flocknote is also offering a daily email program which will deliver the four gospels over the course of one year. My hope is that studying my Catholic faith will now be easier than ever – and for this busy mom and entrepreneur, that’s really great news.
Want to join me? This program begins TODAY, December 9, (the feast of the Immaculate Conception). We’ll be done by next Christmas! Go HERE to sign up for the Catechism program and HERE to sign up for the gospels program. I’m happy to see that Flocknote is using the Ignatius Catholic Study Bible for the gospel program. It’s a great source. I hope you’ll consider signing up.
Stay tuned for a new post coming up in which I muse about my new experiences as a catechist. As you can tell from the absence from my blog, it’s been keeping me busy. :)
