“Are we not perhaps all afraid in some way? If we let Christ enter fully into our lives, if we open ourselves totally to him, are we not afraid that He might take something away from us? Are we not perhaps afraid to give up something significant, something unique, something that makes life so beautiful? Do we not then risk ending up diminished and deprived of our freedom? . . . No! If we let Christ into our lives, we lose nothing, nothing, absolutely nothing of what makes life free, beautiful and great. No! Only in this friendship are the doors of life opened wide. Only in this friendship is the great potential of human existence truly revealed. Only in this friendship do we experience beauty and liberation. And so, today, with great strength and great conviction, on the basis of long personal experience of life, I say to you, dear young people: Do not be afraid of Christ! He takes nothing away, and he gives you everything. When we give ourselves to him, we receive a hundredfold in return. Yes, open, open wide the doors to Christ – and you will find true life. Amen.” ~ Pope Benedict XVI
Where do I start?
Millersville Catholic seeks to introduce students to the Person of Jesus Christ. The starting point for someone seeking to know who Jesus is and perhaps grow in a relationship with him is our small group Bible studies. No prior faith life is required, only an open heart and mind to learning who this most influential person in the history of the world really and truly is. With a small group of your peers, explore those questions that may be residing deep in your heart. If you would be interested in joining this search for Jesus, text "BIBLE STUDY" to 717-497-5675.
Not ready for a Bible study?
Perhaps you do not feel up to spending one hour each week in a small group Bible study, but you still have questions or simply want to talk about life over a cup of coffee or an intense racquetball match, we will be more than happy to meet you where you are. You may call/text us or contact us using the form below:
