Today in RCIA the topic was the old testament. Father Mark talked a little about the 3 different kinds of books in the old testament: history (Genesis, Exodus, 1&2 Chronicles, etc.), prophetic (Isaiah, Jeremiah, Amos, etc.) and wisdom (psalms, song of songs, proverbs). And he gave us an assignment for next week. We have to each bring a passage from each type of book and then talk a little about it. Some of you may be thinking, “What?! Catholics reading the Bible? That can’t be right!” But, despite popular belief, Catholics are encouraged to read the Sacred Scriptures and learn God’s word. I’m excited to do this assignment and find a few passages that speak to me this week. I’m also excited to hear what the other RCIA candidates pick!
