RCIA Week 1 Follow Up

A link to a biography of St. Augustine.

A link to his autobiography/spiritual journal called The Confessions.

Points from the Presentation:
-Man's desire for something or someone is hardwired into his/her very being.
-That desire is placed there by the Creator.
-Only the Creator can satisfy that Desire.
-We call the Creator God.
-We believe certain things about God, one of which is that He wants to have a relationship with us.
-This relationship with Him will satisfy that Desire.
-We are invited to reach out to Him and take the Hand He offers.
-Our acknowledgement of the Hand and our willingness to take it is called Faith.
-Mystery: God becomes human in the person of Jesus of Nazareth.
-Jesus is both human and Divine.  Therefore our Faith is in the Words and Actions and Teachings of a person- Jesus, the Christ.

Next Week: The Human Person: Faith, Reason and Grace: How do I know God? How do I meet Him?
