Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord.
7 Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord. Consider the farmer who waits patiently for the coming of rain in the fall and spring, looking forward to the precious fruit of the earth. 8 You also must wait patiently, strengthening your resolve, because the coming of the Lord is near. 9 Don’t complain about each other, brothers and sisters, so that you won’t be judged. Look! The judge is standing at the door!
10 Brothers and sisters, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord as an example of patient resolve and steadfastness.
Baptism and Beyond is a sacramental preparation resource for Catholic parishes.
The Baptism and Beyond Parent Guide helps parents to understand the sacrament of baptism and also develop skills to foster the spiritual development of their child in the years between baptism and first eucharist.
Part I examines the symbols and scriptures of baptism and complements Session I in the Leader Guide.
Part II provides easy-to-understand information about the stages of a child's faith development and simple activities to connect their home with the life of the larger church.
Parents are encouraged to use the Parent Guide as an interactive journal and memory book during the initial, formative years of their child's life.
