Bite Size Catholic Living

Choosing Christ___________________________________________________________

An Introduction…
The Christian is a person who is in a loving relationship with Jesus Christ and lives a life patterned after the One who was crucified and is risen for us.

Thus to be a Catholic Christian is primarily a LIFE STYLE rooted in PRAYER that expresses our BELIEFS. These three traits of a Christian’s life are bound together as one. Every Christian then becomes responsible for the spiritual health of the whole community of believers by the qualities of how we each live our life and by regular communal and personal prayer.

As with all the aspects of life that excite us from our hobbies and interests to our vacation trips, we want to talk about them and share them with others. So too with our relationship in Jesus Christ. As our relationship with Jesus grows there is the desire to share and pass on this way of life to others, particularly our children.                                                                                                                      

Children and youth primarily learn from the example of others. Since parents continue to be the most influential people in their children’s life, the spiritual life within the home needs to be supported. Thus parents need the backing of grandparents, other family members and the parish community. Christian parents, though primary, stand with other Christians to pass on by their example the LIFE STYLE of a follower and friend of Jesus Christ.

In this life long faith forming process the emphasis is on daily and bite-size; on life style supported by knowledge of the Catholic tradition and by a simple daily prayer grounded in the Sunday Eucharist. This process of being formed as a Christian seeks to highlight what you as a family are already living and to emphasis how it is connected to what Jesus taught. Bite Size Catholic Living becomes an integral part of your family’s daily life because to follow Jesus is to live life to the fullest.
