Why do we renew our baptismal promises?

Our human identity is intimately linked to the sacrament of baptism; through it we are reborn as children of God. In baptism we are incorporated into the life of Christ. This rebirth includes the freedom from sin and our incorporation into the Church, sharing in Christ’s redemptive mission on the cross. 

Does Intercessory prayer help?

Imagine if everyone around us came to the realization that praying for someone is actually quite a simple act. We would all be constant intercessors for everyone around us, especially our family and friends. The irony here is something that, in many respects, is so simple and not necessarily time consuming, is quite often overlooked or completely ignored.

Why a Resolution to Pray Makes Sense

The time-honored tradition of making a New Year’s resolution rests on trying to make our life simpler and fulfilling in the coming year.
