Friday, April 5, 2013

Reflection:  “There is no salvation through anyone else, nor is there any other name under heaven given to the human race by which we are saved.”  Could we ask for a more clear reminder as to why Easter is the high point of the Church year?  Could we ask for any more explanation for why we follow God and trust in His will?  All that we have and all that we hope to one day have in heaven comes to us through the love and saving grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  “The stone rejected by the builders has become the cornerstone.”  Let us rejoice and be glad!

Reflection for younger saints:  Jesus’ death and resurrection means we can join Him in heaven one day.  Our life in heaven will be filled with joy and happiness.  This is why Easter is such a joyful celebration.

Big Picture:  There is no salvation through anyone else

Discussion Starters:
     Younger saints:
  What does the word salvation mean?  Who provided us with our salvation?
     Older saints:  Reflect on the statement “there is no salvation through anyone else.”  Are you living your life as if Jesus is your source of salvation and happiness?  Or are you focused on and living for something or someone else?

Fun Fact:  The Apostles Creed teaches us the chief truths that were taught by Jesus (St. Joseph’s Baltimore Catechism No. 1, 2008, p. 13).

Saint of the day: 
 Saint Vincent Ferrer
     What they are remembered for:  St. Vincent Ferrer became a priest at a young age, in spite of opposition from his parents.  Overwhelmed by the work of trying to re-unite the Church following the Western schism, St. Vincent devoted the last 20 years of his life to preaching the Good News and striving to draw others to God.
     Feast day:  April 5
