I'm Glad You're Here!

Welcome to your Online Catholic Adventure:  a religious education class designed to explore Catholic resources available to you 24/7/365 on the web. 

For tonight's lesson, you are joined by more than 100 St. Lawrence students. May God bless you and the Holy Spirit give life to your adventure. 

There are four blog posts to study. Each provides links to Catholic articles, resources, or videos on one of the four pillars of the Catholic Catechism. Spend most of your time on the links that are meaningful or interesting to you. 

As you study, think about how to make one online Catholic resource part of your faith journey now. Be creative and ask God for help through prayer. Some ideas include: bookmark a web address to your favorites; share a Scripture verse or Catholic link with a friend; call someone in class to talk about a Catholic article; write down three resources that you want to visit again; print out a prayer that you hang by your bedside and will say every night; or change your screen saver to your favorite saint's photograph. 

When done, post a comment under one blog post to share what action you took to make one online Catholic resource part of your faith journey. Briefly, in two or three sentences, describe 1) what Catholic resource you chose, 2) what action you took or plan to take with the resource, and 3) how you think that resource will help you more closely follow Jesus, build a relationship with God, evangelize by sharing Jesus with others, engage in service or prayer, or deepen your faith knowledge. 

Pray before you begin:  "Lord, direct my actions by your holy inspirations." Our Father. Sign of Cross.

As you explore, stay focused on Catholic resources. Enjoy the adventure with Christ. And get out your personal GPS (God Positioning System), for, "Every person carries in his heart the blueprint of the one he loves," according to Archbishop Fulton Sheen, from Illinois, who recently had a miracle approved by the Vatican.

Let the adventure begin! 


  1. I chose to put a prayer beside my bed and i plan to pray it every night.I think this will help me get closer to god because then i can talk to him more often

  3. I chose to put a psalm above my bed which was 123:2 and hope to read it every night. I want to talk to God every night and hopefully more.

  4. I chose to put a Psalm above my bed which is 16:8 and want to read it every night. This way I can talk to God every night, and day.

  5. I chose Psalm 51:3-4 to put near my bed because I think that it reflects what people do daily and it is true. I plan to read it every day/night and hopefully it will help bring me closer to God and Jesus.

  6. I chose to hang a prayer up in my room. I will read it every night before I go to bed so I can learn more about god and jesus.

  7. I chose to take a screenshot of psalm 55:22 and make that the new lock screen on my phone. Everytime I look at my phone, I think of it and know that in times of stress, especially with all of my school work and extracurriculars I know that God will always be there for me

  8. I chose to put the Act of Contrition next to my bed to pray it every night. I believe this will help me get closer to god. Also I believe it will help me live every day as a new beginning and live life to the fullest.

  9. I chose to put the St. Michael the Archangel prayer next to my bed. I think this is a great prayer to read. I plan to read it every night. I hope it better connects me to God.

  10. Thank you so much! That did the trick, you saved me more endless hours of searching for a fix.
