Mercy Banner

Mar 14 | Mercy: What is this Jubilee All About

Mercy Banner

 

Pope Francis has declared this a Jubilee Year of Mercy, “a time of grace, peace, conversion and joy.  It is meant for everyone: people of every age, from far and near.  There are no walls or distances which can prevent the Father’s mercy from reaching and embracing us.”

He urges young people to fully participate: “This grace-filled moment also concerns you, dear young people.  I encourage you to take an active part in this celebration and to realize that each of you is a child of God (cf. 1 Jn 3:1).”

What is God’s mercy? How can we take part in His mercy and embrace it in our own lives?

Most of us have an image of God the Father and God the Son that is easy to relate to, but many struggle with understanding who the Holy Spirit is and what he does. Who is the Holy Spirit? If we could understand Him better, we couldn’t live without Him. Where would we be with Him? How can He transform our lives?

About Our Speaker

A thoroughbred Texan, Stephanie has a tight knit family and a deep love for Tex Mex food. She was raised Catholic and began to truly discover her faith in high school. She fell in love with Jesus in the Eucharist and from then on the Lord kept calling her closer to Him – He pursued her heart in prayer, the teachings of the Church gave life-giving answers to her questions, and she found healing and love that began to renew her. The Lord would deepen her heart through college and lead her into full time college ministry. She served as a FOCUS Missionary for two years at Texas State University and now is in her second year as Campus Minister at the University of Memphis and Rhodes College.

OCT 12 | God Draws Close

TOTMemphis600x200

God Draws Close

The Catechism of the Catholic Church in its Prologue in the very first teaching begins with these words:

“God, infinitely perfect and blessed in himself, in a plan of sheer goodness freely created man to make him share in his own blessed life. For this reason, at every time and in every place, God draws close to man. He calls man to seek him, to know him, to love him with all his strength.” – CCC 1

We Christians do not believe in a “watchmaker god” who created us and then left us to fend for ourselves. We believe in a personal God who longs for us to know him more intimately to share his life with us.

Time: 6:30 PM
Date: Monday, October 12
Place: Trolley Stop Market, 704 Madison Ave., Memphis, TN 38103

 


 

About Our SpeakerDeacon Jeff

An ordained Deacon for the Diocese of Memphis, the father of 9 children, and the host of the podcast/radio show, The Catholic Cafe;  Deacon Jeff Drzycimski was born and raised a Catholic, but strayed from the Church as a young adult.

After a “born-again” encounter with Jesus, he started searching for the one true church that Jesus Himself had founded in the Bible.  He started with the writings of the early Christians.  It didn’t take long before he discovered that the church he had left behind, the Roman Catholic Church, the same church in which he was Baptized, received First Eucharist and Confirmed, was that very church.

Deacon Jeff returned to the Faith with a newfound love of Christ and His Church, and an enthusiasm for the Truth. He developed a great passion for defense of the Faith issues and apologetics.
