What does it mean to be saved? Can I know that I am saved? As Christians, and especially as Catholics, we face these questions on a daily basis, not only from the people we meet but also in our own hearts. Scripture provides the answer, for the Bible isn’t simply a collection of disjointed tales — it is the story of our salvation.
In this Bible study, Fr. Mitch Pacwa guides us through Catholic teaching on salvation, as found in Scripture. With his characteristic wisdom, he tackles tough topics and questions, including grace and free will, repentance and faith, the role of the sacraments, and the necessity of good works.
Perfect for a parish small group study or for personal reflection, each of the six sessions in Saved: A Bible Study Guide for Catholics will help us begin to discover the infinite mystery of our salvation, deepening our relationship with the God who saves us.
In these pages, Fr. Mitch Pacwa, host of EWTN Live, will help you make the most of the treasure-trove of practical advice found in the Book of Proverbs. He explains in a succinct and readable way how God’s blessing is related to our behavior, how you can be life God, and how to live in accord with His law.
Because each Proverb is true in a certain sense and applicable in a certain way, Fr. Pacwa helps you relate each Proverb to your particular state in life as well as to your own spiritual journey.
The message of Proverbs is simple, yet difficult to live out. Read these pages, and you’ll come to understand the practical side of righteousness, and you’ll begin to grow in wisdom through patience, prayer, and God’s grace.
