Conversion A Lifelong Process
There is always room for growth in our faith
That’s why we have to surround ourselves with a good support system.
We have to pick that support system wisely because that might be our life support system for something I would call our living faith.
When we’re first learning about our faith and getting out of RCIA our faith is beating strong. While attending those classes our faith was being fed to give us that life line. We have to keep the life line strong ourselves once we have finished the classes.
So what I would suggest to you is to always be looking for ways to feed your living faith, because if you don’t feed your living faith your living faith will slowly bleed out like a living person. In the center of your living faith is the church in which you are now all a piece. The church is something you don’t always know how to believe in. That’s when you would fall back on your support system.
That’s why your support system has to be strong; your support system is kind of like your life support. If one part of your life system fails it can be bad. It could be the whole failure of your life. We need to remain one body and one spirit in Christ. Which I’m pretty sure most you know what it’s like to be searching for a faith or living with a faith that feels incomplete. Whichever you were doing before you became full members of the church.
You may fall back into your past or have doubts about where you are going, but my heart says you will always come back to our Catholic community. This in my heart is the true and only faith as you’ve seen in the classes. I hope you have learned the church is one body and one spirit in Christ. One true living body. Which you will receive every Sunday from now until the end of your life hopefully, unless something drastically goes wrong which I hope never does.
If you have any doubts or want to seek out the answers to any questions regarding your new faith please feel free to contact any of the team including me. We will help you find the answers to your questions.
The other part I want to stress to you which I already did in one respect is don’t let your life line go down to zero, because I once unfortunately did so myself. I am still trying to recover from it. I think that was the biggest mistake of my life, not seeking out help when I really needed it. So please seek help.
One of the other ways you can keep your faith strong is learning to read daily readings if at all possible. Or at least learn to read the Sunday reading before going to Mass. I am now going to give you a way in which you may read those from my wordpress blog @ joncraft84.wordpress.com. You will always be in my prayers as I hope I am in yours.
