Deacon Jodi Moscona, Billy Arcement
The Baltimore Catechism answer to the question, "Why did God make me?" should make us stop and ponder; reflect, really, on what we are truly all about in this enterprise called life. "Why did God make me?" "To know Him, to love Him, and to serve Him in this life and to be happy with Him in Heaven forever."
Note those last eight words - they tell us what the focus of our endeavor should be - happiness with God in Heaven for all eternity. When stress hits, when contradictions abound, when our own frailties seem overwhelming, how do we keep the end in sight?
