Catholic Church of Annunciation

This weeks session will be led by Dr. Bill Horn, RCIA team member, on "A Catholic Moral Vision," – Virtue, Grace and the Path to Happiness. In Catholic teaching, living a moral life means following the plan of the God who made us so that we can be fully alive. It means becoming all that God created us to be. This weeks session will cover: What leads to true happiness; the difference between the modern view of freedom and the biblical view of freedom; virtue and why we need it to live life well; the three things that make an act moral; why we can never do evil so that good may result – in other words, why "the ends never justifies the means; sin and how it hinders our pursuit of happiness; what and why we need to have a "correctly formed conscience." Remember if the Shelby County schools are called off due to bad weather then the RCIA session is also. For more information contact Deacon Joseph Bland.
