Interested in diving deeper into the Word of God?


If you would like to learn more about the Catholic faith as a Catholic or a Christian from another faith tradition, here’s two resources that you might want to consider:

‘The Bible in a Year’ podcast, is a great resource for Catholics who have never read through the whole Bible or are not in the habit of reading their Bibles. And if you from a church that grew out of the Reformation, it will introduce you to the books that you will find in Catholic Bibles, but not in your Bible. It will also help you begin to appreciate the Catholic interpretive tradition in engaging with the Bible.
Most episodes are about 20 mins each; which makes it do-able. The only episodes that are longer are two that introduce the series and a few that introduce each section of the timeline of the Bible.

You can watch the series on YouTube here or listen to it in your favourite podcast App:

‘The Catechism in a Year’ podcast, is another great resource to help you dive more deeply into the Catholic faith. It is a great way to work through the Catechism in bite-sized pieces and with some guidance. 

Most episodes are about 15-20 minutes long, except for four of them, which introduce each of the four ‘pillars’ of the Catechism.

As you work through the Catechism, you will discover the roots of Catholic belief and practice in Scripture and in the Apostolic Tradition flowing from the lives and teaching of the church fathers and Catholic saints.

‘The Catechism in a Year’ is also available on all major podcast platforms.

What’s your understanding of the church?

The Bible uses various images to describe the church, to help us understand its many facets. When I came across this meme a few years back, it stayed with me, because it helped me better understand the church as a type of ‘spiritual gym’ which I am a part of, because it’s a space where I can receive God and other people’s help, to keep working on my many dysfunctions and become healthier over time. It also helps overcome false images of the church – like the understanding that it is an exclusive club for those who claim to be perfect or morally superior than others.

Growing in a Relationship of Mercy as couples

Through experiencing my wife’s love when I fail /least deserve it, has made me more grateful for our relationship, because it has taken away the fear of being punished /rejected for my failures. I also feel closer to her as a result. And it has helped me to become more merciful myself.

Witnesses of Jesus’ Resurrection

The theme of ‘witnesses’ – people who’ve experienced something – speaks to something that is really distinctive to the Christian faith. Christianity is not a philosophy – though it can incorporate philosophy; it’s not primarily a mysticism – though it can incorporate mysticism; it’s not a religion that comes welling up out of natural experience – though it can accommodate that. Christianity is about something that happened; and there were witnesses of it. Without that, Christianity falls apart.
