Hot Item #1:
Developing a Personal Relationship with Jesus course
Pope Benedict XVI wrote that Communion is "always simultaneously adoration." While he admitted that in the past there was too much emphasis on the divine aspect of Jesus, he writes in "God is Near Us," that we have gone to the opposite extreme in recent times focusing too much on the human side of Jesus. Therefore, at Mass he says, "We must learn anew the quiet prayer before Communion and the silent one with the Lord, abandoning ourselves to him." We have to commune with the Person of Jesus Christ. Learn more about developing a personal relationship with Jesus, as we explore Saints and classics in our course beginning on Monday night at 6:30 pm at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Independence, Mo.
