(Cardinal Hume)



The important questions, “Why am I here?”, “What would Jesus have me do?” and ”What happens after I die?” are hardly ever asked. And our world has no answers.

Make time to read the Bible

If you are serious about having a better life and really knowing Jesus, then read the Bible each day. Follow Christ through the Gospels.

Before your reading, pray "Holy Spirit, help me to understand Your Word.”

End by asking yourself: “What have I learned? Is there something in my life that needs to change?” and “What does God want me to do?”

Children and the Bible

Keep a family Bible in your home. Children need to see you read it and hear you read it to them.

Encourage your children to ask questions about the life of Jesus Christ. If children learn who Jesus is, how He died for them, what the Bible teaches, then they will make the right decisions.
