The first sign of being a Dynamic Catholic is Prayer

We all pray differently in our daily lives, yet the practice that Matthew Kelly (2012) points out that can enhance our own communication with GOD is through our Examination of Conscience*, which we Catholics do before Confession, and we listen for His message.

Genesis 1:1

We opened our R.E. class with this simple reminder of the beginning…


*Now here are my Church’s Examination of Conscience:

The First 3 Commandments

  1. I am the LORD, your GOD; you shall have no other GODs besides Me.
  2. You shall not take the name of the LORD your GOD in vain.
  3. Remember the Sabbath Day, to keep it Holy.
