3) CCC 26-183 (YOUCAT 7-19)
Considering your life experience and what you have learned in studying this subject, ask yourself: In what ways has God revealed Himself to me and what has been my response? Considering that Jesus is the fullness of God's revelation, ask yourself: Is it enough to know about Him? How can I come to know Him more deeply? In what ways does that change my life?
Lord, inspire me to read your Scriptures and to meditate upon them day and night. I beg you to give me real understanding of what I need, that I in turn may put its precepts into practice. Yet, I know that understanding and good intentions are worthless, unless rooted in your graceful love. So I ask that the words of Scripture may also be not just signs on a page, but channels of grace into my heart. Amen.
In what ways can I help myself and others to discover and grow in their understanding of the fullness of God's revelation?
