RCIA is a formal process within the Church which allows non-Catholic adults to learn more about the Faith. While it is an educational program, the ultimate goal, if the candidate so chooses, is to be welcomed into the Catholic Faith by reception of the Sacrament of Baptism/Confirmation, which always occurs on Holy Saturday. The RCIA program usually begins in October/November and concludes with the Rite of Acceptance on Holy Saturday. Classes are held weekly and meet at an agreed time convenient for both the instructors and candidates. Assigned readings and class discussion are part of the normal weekly meetings. Any non-Catholic with an interest in learning more about the RCIA process should talk to one of the priests or deacons.

Medical Symbol“You understand, O Lord, remember me and care for me.”  ~Jeremiah 15:15

Pills are often considered the first line of defense but with colds and flu, they will not help since antibiotics are for bacterial infections only and cold/flu germs are viral infections. Some think antibiotics help with symptoms but inappropriate use of medication only trains germs to become drug resistant. This means that when you do need the drug, it will be ineffective and you will need a more expensive, stronger drug – if one is available. Whenever you do receive a prescription, use it as directed and complete the course to be sure to kill all the bacteria in your system. Using your meds incorrectly only hurts you physically and financially.
