POPE Tells 3 Ways to Know Christ

 

Francis Says Catechesis Isn’t Enough to Enter into Really Knowing Person of Christ, We Must Pray.

Catechism is not enough, we must pray to know Jesus.

According to Vatican Radio, Pope Francis urged faithful to do this during his daily morning Mass at Casa Santa Marta, drawing from St Paul’s letter to the Ephesians today where the Apostle prayed that they may be strengthened with power through the Holy Spirit and that Christ may dwell in their hearts.

In the reading, Paul speaks of the richness that is found in really knowing the person of Christ, and in today’s homily, Pope Francis expressed the three requirements we must meet to really know Him, too.

CONGRATULATIONS to our ELEVATE Youth Group who took home the CHAMPIONSHIP SHIELD last Saturday. A huge thank you to our youth who represented Elevate and led St Christopher's to a great victory against Youth Groups from St Leonard’s, St Benedict’s and other parishes. A variety of games was played on the day, from dodgeball to basketball and everyone had lots of fun. Thanks to Aidan Stewart, Robert Vecchio and Eliza Lai for helping to feed the youth and to Fr Ralph for concluding the day by celebrating Mass. We need YOU to join us next year when we defend the shield!
