What do you really believe?
Description: In Mark 12:28-34, Jesus gives that so-familiar commandment to love God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength, and to love your neighbor as yourself. Our belief in God is proven by how we love, not by the words we utter. Every Sunday in Mass, we recite the Nicene Creed, a summary of our Christian beliefs, but words only prove that we have vocal chords.
This 2-page handout helps people meditate slowly and thoughtfully on the words of the Creed as an examination of how well they live the faith.
