How can I get more from my journey?
One way is by digging deeper into the weekly readings. If you want to get more out of dismissal and the Tuesday night discussions, dig deeper into the weekly readings through the weekly tools we have here for you.
The more you read the Bible, the closer you get to God. The more you read the New Testament, the closer you will become to Christ. Through reading and through prayer, you will greatly enrich your journey. The USCCB site is a great place to get the readings, read the Bible and the readings are also available to listen to and there is even a short reflection available you can listen to our watch. You can even subscribe to the podcast.

He persecuted Christians, became a saint?
