Editor's Note: During the month of November, as the Year of Faith draws to a close, we will be celebrating all the fruits of this year. Each day we will feature a short reflection from Catholics all over the country and world, sharing what God has done. If you want to share your own fruits with us, email us a short reflection (no more than 500 words, please) to email@example.com. We'd love to hear how God has blessed you and deepened your faith this year!
“I am so glad you posted that story on your Facebook page!” is a common comment that I get through out the week. Whenever I get the chance to brows the daily article, I like to re-post it to my Facebook. There are some that do not go to the web site to see the article or have it on their phones, but will read it from a Facebook post.
This year of faith has been about refreshing our knowledge and sharing our faith to others. A great Pope asked us to use any means possible to share our love of the faith. At this time, Facebook seems to be a popular and simple way to teach and show our faith. I have found those outside the faith commenting on the posts, and later asking questions about the article.
It is a great way for me as a mother to read a simple story to my children who may be sitting on my lap, the story of the Saint of the day. Often, I will send the article to my older children to reaffirm a teaching that we often stressed while they were here at home. The gentle reminders of our faith are what keeps us on our toes and walking in the path Christ has set before us. As a parent, I send these articles to other parents who are struggling or rejoicing in their vocations, to be supported and encouraged.
My Year of Faith has been a great source of inspiration, information and encouragement to our family and others. We are blessed to have this simple site.
