Forever Grateful for Mercy

Do we really understand what mercy is? Do we understand that without this gift of God's love, made possible by Jesus giving His life on the Cross, we all deserve death? In his latest booklet, Ralph Martin explains that mercy is a dimension of love that demands our response in order for it to bear fruit in our lives.

i.d.9:16 | Let's Get Started!

Fr. John Ricardo recently encouraged i.d.9:16 members with these words:

What is the single most important thing you and I can do to evangelize? Meet Him.

That is i.d.9:16’s goal—to help young adults meet Christ, hear His call, and decide to follow Him. We want to help parishes raise up young adult communities of missionary disciples.

Does your parish share this goal? Do you want to join with us on this mission? If you are interested in forming a new chapter or engaging young adults, contact us: www.id916.com/newchapter

The Mercy of God and the Joy Repentance Brings

How do we live so that God’s “joy may be in [us] and [our] joy may be full?”(Jn 15: 11) In this booklet, Sister Ann Shields, SGL, uses Scripture to describe the intimate relationship between repentance and joy. Repentance allows us to receive God’s mercy; it opens the floodgates of His grace—and sets us on a sure path to discovering the joy God intends for each one of us.

Mexico Mission Trip

This video captures the 2016 Renewal Ministries' mission to Mexico with a group of seniors from Father Gabriel Richard High School (FGRHS) in Ann Arbor. While there, students ministered to the impoverished in a garbage dump, an orphanage, and a senior men's facility. They also visited the Shrine of Guadalupe.

Renewal Ministries makes multiple missions to Mexico each year, including one geared to young adults, and other missions open to all team members. Medical personnel are welcome on these missions and serve those living in the dump through an on-site primary care medical clinic.

Striking the Last Blow Against Pride

Every day at Renewal Ministries’ office, we pray the Angelus together at noon, as a way of interceding for both our own needs and those of others who request our prayers. I think of it as “bundling” our requests and having the Mother of God present them to Jesus. After three recitations of the “Hail […]
