Daily Dose of the Catechism

Lately I've been trying to squeeze in a little bit of time each day to read scripture and the catechism. And since you get quite a bit of scripture every time you go to Mass I thought I'd share some of my favorite quotes from the Catechism in a new section I'm thinking off adding called the Daily Dose of Catechism. Usually it will just be the verse and maybe a thought that came along with it. Today thought, since it's the first post, I'll explain what I've been up to:

Here's my method for reading so far. I begin with a prayer. I need all the help I can get to absorb everything and keep my focus these days. Then I'll read for fifteen minutes, with a little notebook next to me, writing down verses that stand out so I can go back and reread them later. After fifteen minutes (or sometimes thirty... it's really a far more absorbing read than I ever imagined it would be) I go back and reread those important parts and then reread them again the next morning so that the ideas really begin to sink in.

And here it is- You're very first Daily Dose of the Catechism:

"Faith is man's response to God, who reveals himself and gives himself to man, at the same time bringing man a superabundant light as he searches for the ultimate meaning of his life."

I love comments and I read every single comment that comes in (and I try to respond when the little ones aren't distracting me to the point that it's impossible!). Please show kindness to each other and our family in the comment box. After all, we're all real people on the other side of the screen!
