'That' bicycle Several people have asked about the bicycle seemingly abandoned outside the door of the Hall for so many weeks. Someone 'phoned me and asked if it would be alright to leave it there over night. This seemed to be such a simple request that I didn't bother asking for details. Nothing has been heard since, and I think that if no one has claimed it by the end of the month we will have to think of disposing of it. If YOU know who it belongs to, please would you ask them to come and take it away?
SALVATION, SANCTIFICATION, AND SACRAMENTS
God's loving will is that all people should be reconciled with him, and enjoy the life of heaven. Indeed he created us to live in his presence, in our Father's house, for eternity. But for this to come about, we need to be Saved and we need to be Sanctified : saved from the death-dealing effects of our disobedience, and hence alienation from God, and then made holy -sanctified.
In our Salvation and Sanctification, the Sacraments of the Church play a vital part. It is God's will and God's plan to reconcile us to himself, and to fit us for heaven, by this means. Which is why the Sacraments are so important in Catholic teaching. They are about Salvation and Sanctification.
There are seven Sacraments, and they fall into three groups. There are the three
Sacraments of Initiation , whereby we are united to God, and become part of the family of the Church. These Sacraments are BAPTISM, HOLY COMMUNION, and CONFIRMATION.
There are also the two
Sacraments of Healing - CONFESSION, for the healing of our souls, and the ANOINTING OF THE SICK, to benefit our body and mind.
And then there are the two
Sacraments of Vocation - ORDINATION and
Over the next few weeks we will be looking at the Sacraments, in particular from the angle of how they bring to us Salvation & Sanctification.
