Rose Marie Question on Reading Lessons & the Bible by Patrick Miron

“What does that mean exactly? Not to be read like a book I’ve heard people say this about the bible to?”

Rose Marie, this is a REALLY Great question; not crazy at all.

Both the Lessons and the bible have a common goal which is to teach you the Faith beliefs taught by Jesus Christ.

Because this endeavor demands that us mere mortal are attempting to comprehend the Mind of GOD, it is always a great idea to ask God through prayer to help us understand what He desires we learn from this experience {Lesson and or Bible reading.} …In other words begin each reading period with a prayer asking for the grace of Wisdom and Right {His} Understanding.

When we do this with a sincere heart and an OPEN mind; the Holy Spirit can, and most often will make evident to you what He wants you to know in the present moment.

Reading Lessons and the Bible should be approached much as you would do in reading a school-textbook.. Seeking to learn the “hidden” lessons more than {dare I say} “only” following the “story.”

Here’s a prayer you might consider using:

Cf. John 16: 13-14

“Christ said, “The Counselor, the Holy Spirit will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you”.  … Divine Counselor, please enlighten my mind to the teachings of Christ, and help me recall His Words that are Spirit and truth. AMEN!”

 Rose Marie, if this doesn’t fully answer your question; PLEASE let me know, and I’ll try again. It’s an important question.

May our God to Bless you,

Patrick
