LITURGY CORNER

3 Things to know about the Sign of the Cross

The mass begins when the priest says “In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit”, and as he says this we all do the Sign of the Cross.

Technically, the sign of the cross is a sacramental, a sacred sign instituted by the Church which prepares a person to receive grace and which sanctifies a moment or circumstance. Along this thought, this gesture has been used since the earliest times of the Church to begin and to conclude prayer and the Mass.

Every time we do the sign of the cross, it should remind us of three things:

  • God is a Trinity: This is probably the most obvious as it reminds us that the Trinity is three Persons in one God.
  • Our Worth: Every time we trace the Sign of the Cross on ourselves we are tracing our worth, our price tag. According to God, we are worth His very life and His very death.
  • Our purpose on earth: As we touch our forehead we realize we are called to know God. As we touch our heart we realize we are called to love God. And finally, as we touch both our shoulders we realize we are called to serve God with all that we are.

It is a simple act yet it is so profound in meaning.

YOUTH MINISTRY NEEDS YOU!

St. Agnes Youth Ministry’s goal is to draw our teens into closer relationship with Christ. It is NOT a one person job, it takes a parish! There are many ways that you may help - young adults to older adults alike.

Do you have a desire to pray for others?

RCIA IS AN INVITATION!

The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (R.C.I.A.) is the pathway for adults (over 18 years) to become Catholics. Becoming Catholic is not about joining a “club”. To become Catholic is your response to God’s invitation to participate fully in the celebration of His love and life through the Sacraments of Baptism, First Communion, Confirmation, and even marriage! Make the choice to allow God to work in your life. You will soon see a change in your personal attitude, perception, and intent. The first choice is to say “yes”! Simply say “yes” to God’s call and invite Him in.

There is no time like the present to make the call! Weekly meetings begin Monday, October 2nd from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm in the Pastoral Center.

Contact the Office of Religious Education, Sister Maria Andrea, Alida Kurzan at 305-361-1379, or contact R.C.I.A. Linda. at 305-205-8943.
