My Catholic Faith Delivered


My Catholic Faith Delivered is far more than on online course. It is a platform that also houses the Certification Management System. Our system tracks and stores progress, reports and certifications for yourself, your students and/or your catechists. It also enables group administrators to post notifications and discussions for their groups or classes. In other words, paper trails and file cabinets are a thing of the past! Administrators are now able to create and manage their classes 24/7 with the ease and click of a button.

Our courses provide in-depth learning programs and video tutorials on the web for all levels of knowledge of the Catholic faith. This is accomplished by combining Catholic content with innovative technology. It is the ideal program for a teacher or a catechist looking for resources and courses, and for a Catholic who simply wants a better understanding of the faith. These fantastic courses are available on the Internet anytime, anywhere-making learning convenient and fun. Our dynamic courses feature engaging lessons, interactive activities, games, voiceovers, and immediate assessments that give real-time feedback on learner progress. Many of our courses are available in Spanish, as well!

Why Do Catholics Dress Up for Mass?


Because if we love someone, we should honor him with both our souls and our bodies.

Why do we dress up for weddings, funerals, and certain jobs? To honor those whom we love or those whom we serve. In the Scriptures we read: “Worship the Lord in holy attire” 1 Chronicles 16:29, Psalms 29:2, 96:9. And, the Catholic Catechism teaches that our gestures and our clothing “ought to convey the respect, solemnity, and joy of this moment when Christ becomes our guest” in Holy Communion CCC 1387.

Clothes say something about what we think, what we value. They also influence how we behave and feel. Sunday is special, and God’s House is special. Some things are really important, and our clothing and demeanor ought to reflect this truth.

The exterior reflects the interior, and God definitely deserves the best we have inside and out! This is also why altar dressings, items for the Mass, vestments the priests wear etc., are normally the best we can manage – made from expensive materials and adorned with gold, silver and jewels. However, we have to remember that our fancy dress clothes should be reflecting that our soul is just as dressed up.

Dressing properly for Mass means nothing if we have no love in our hearts.

CATHOLICISM: it’s your story…

The Dignity of the Child and the “I’m Bored: Entertain Me” Syndrome.

The dignity of the human person is rooted in his creation in the image and likeness of God…By his deliberate actions, the human person does, or does not, conform to the good promised by God…[individuals] make their own contribution to their interior growth; they make their whole…lives into means of this growth. —Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1700

Work honors the Creator’s gifts and the talents received from Him. —ibid,2427

If you’ve ever read the family-friendly Little House on the Prairie series, or Anne Pellowski’s “Catholic Little House” series, have you noticed that boredom is never mentioned?

“Boredom” was rare a century ago, simply because children were valued not only as gifts made in the image of God, but also for their necessary participation in the well-being of the family.  This participation included daily labors that often began before sunrise and ended only at bedtime.  After several hours of “chores,” children were rarely bored in their free time.  And those chores contributed to their interior growth.  (CCC 1700)

Even though they lived often-menial lives, do you suppose Our Lord and Lady were ever bored? No, because all that they did they did for someone else.  That is, whether sweeping up sawdust or perhaps baking bread for a sick neighbor, their work was dedicated to the greater glory of God, in the service of others.

For some Antidotes to Boredom continue reading via CHC E-Newsletter.
