15 Bible Verses Catholics Can Memorize

Do you have any Catholic Bible verses memorized? If you really believe in the power of the Word of God, you should make an effort to study it, understand it, and memorize it. It is a gift that we have been given to help us in our faith.

It’s very useful in the Christian life to memorize scripture. We can use it in times of trouble and despair as a source of hope or in times of joy to show our gratitude to God. We can recite it when we don’t know what or how to pray, and use God’s words to offer advice to our friends.

We’ve collected a few Bible verses that are good to know. Click on each of the images to print and post them somewhere so you can begin memorizing them!

12 Catholic retreats held in the most beautiful settings

To drop everything for a weekend, and spend time in solitude (and maybe silence!), prayer and reflection is the perfect antidote to our busy, distracted lives. As we look forward to a frenetic holiday season, with Thanksgiving around the corner, this may be the perfect time for a spiritual retreat. If things are a little too busy now, consider scheduling a retreat for after Christmas, when you are ready to make the most of it.

Spiritual retreats are not just for priest and religious. In fact, the United States Council of Catholic Bishops urges lay people to take advantage of opportunities to go on a retreat: “In the midst of your busy lives, a retreat opportunity affords you time of silence and clarity that cannot be found in the world.”

How To Pray A Novena – A Visual Step By Step Guide

The novena is a Catholic practice of prayer that’s done over the course of nine days. Its practice goes back to the time of the apostles. The first novena can be attributed to when they got together to pray, after the Ascension waiting for the coming of the Holy Spirit.

Pray as you go

Pray as you go is a daily prayer session, designed to go with you wherever you go, to help you pray whenever you find time, but particularly whilst travelling to and from work, study, etc.
A new prayer session is produced every day of the working week and one session for the weekend.  It is not a ‘Thought for the Day’, a sermon or a bible-study, but rather a framework for your own prayer.
Lasting between ten and thirteen minutes, it combines music, scripture and some questions for reflection.

Prayer and Spirituality – We each have a call to spirituality

Each of us is called into existence by God as someone special. “I have called you by name: you are mine,” (Isaiah 43: 1). Through Baptism, we are initiated into a special relationship with Christ. Our Church leads and guides us but each person needs to develop a close friendship with Jesus, to know Him intimately. This is not accomplished solely be going through the motions of rituals and ceremonies. We respond to God’s love on a personal level by tapping the resources of God within our inner souls. People are body and soul and both must be cared for and developed if we are to be fully human. We are called to live as humanly as possible. This involves living a life in the Spirit and making God a very real part of our daily lives.
