16 May 24 – Are You Worth It?
Understanding yourself is the prerequisite for recognizing your worth. We are told time and time again that we have infinite value in God's eyes but we need to understand our strengths and offer up our weaknesses. We must be able to see ourselves the way God sees us. The world has brainwashed us to believe that we can only be valued if we look a certain way or if we need to make a certain amount. How can this be when we are all individually and uniquely created by God? Dr. Sandoval wants to remind you that being you is enough to reach out to God. However, we can only truly know Him and ourselves by striving to live a sacramental lifestyle according to the Catholic Church. Today's Topics: 1, 2, 3, 4) Is it worth it? Am I worth it? Are you worth it? Well these are simple questions without simple answers Before you can answer these, why don't we talk about who we are https://diocesehn.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/The-Rite-of-Baptism-with-comments.pdf
