We could not be more excited and happy that you had a personal encounter with the Father’s infinite love for YOU. You are about to begin a journey that will change the course of your life, and change the lives of all those around you. Jesus loves you so much, and he has an incredible plan for you, a plan that will work great things in and through you.
For surely I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for your welfare, and not for harm, do give you a future with hope.”
– Jeremiah 29:11
God will not be able to fully reveal this plan to you, to start working great things in you, unless you invite him into the centre of your life. Don’t be afraid!
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.”
Pope Benedict XVI, Mass for the Inauguration of his Pontificate
What an incredible love story! God proves his love for us by sending his Son to die on the cross to reconcile us with Him. For love to be truly be love it has to be chosen. We are invited to make that choice through faith, placing God at the centre of all we do.
To begin this divine adventure, we invite you to pray the following prayer:
Lord Jesus, I believe that you know me and love me.
I have not always chosen to love you, and have broken my
relationship with you through my sins.
Thank you for proving your love for me on the cross so that our
relationship can be restored.
I open the door of my heart and I invite you to be at the centre
of my life – to be my Saviour and my Lord.
Direct me and help me to live the Gospel
with my whole life.
God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
Has given us a new birth by water and the Holy Spirit,
and forgiven our sins.
May he also keep us faithful to our Lord Jesus Christ
for ever and ever. Amen
