Reflective Study Guide Questions

“God is faithful and will not let you be tried beyond your strength; but with the trial He will also provide a way out, so that you may be able to bear it.”

1 Corinthians 10:13
  1. Fr. Patrick speaks about how God has made us to be in a relationship with Him and to share in His being. How often do you think of God in terms of your personal relationship with Him? How can you focus more on growing in your relationship with Him?

  2. St. Paul tells us that God does not give us any trials that are beyond our strength. But sometimes we might feel as if He has given us something that we cannot handle. Have you ever felt like God has given you a trial beyond your strength?

  3. God is omniscient and knows what He is accomplishing in our lives.What are some ways He has fulfilled His promises to you in your life? How has He shown you that He is faithful?

About Father Patrick Mary Briscoe

Father Patrick Mary Briscoe has recently finished his studies in theology at the Dominican House of Studies in Washington, D.C. Ordained a priest in May 2016, he presently serves at St. Pius V parish in Providence, Rhode Island. He has two younger sisters–who are twins–and thus has no fear of picking fights, even when he’s outnumbered! 

Fr. Patrick graduated from Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota, where he majored in philosophy and French literature. Since joining the Dominican Order, he has served in campus ministry, as an intern at the Archdiocese of Washington, as a missionary in Kenya (alongside the Missionaries of Charity), and at St. Matthew’s Cathedral in Washington, DC. Following his ordination to the priesthood, he worked on special assignment for the Knights of Columbus in Krakow, Poland, as an organizer at the World Youth Day Mercy Centre.
