Discipleship

Discipleship Prayer   

Good and gracious God, Your Son, Jesus Christ, calls all people to follow Him and become His disciples, inviting us to know Him and share Him with others.
Touch our hearts and stir our spirit.
Help us daily to take up our cross and follow Him by living His Word and proclaiming His Good News to those around us.
May our faith in You increase, may our hunger for the Gospel intensify, and may our parish be strengthened as we learn to love one another as He has loved us.

Amen

Nov 14/15

We do good works because God is love and we yearn to live in God. By sharing love with others, we encounter the living God. (p.116)

Faith is something that we receive...To be receptive means to think of God as the potter and ourselves as the clay. God, through the Church, forms us. (p.9)

Life is Changed, Not Ended

So, just what is an adult Catholic supposed to "look like"? The answer very simply is: we are all to become saints...The early church referred to all of the faithful followers of Jesus as the saints. (p.4)

Drawing the Saints Close

Our Pilgrimage with the Saints

Oct 24/25

Jesus' summary of the commandments reinforces the crucial notion that love of God and love of neighbor cannot be separated. This was the message Pope Benedict XVI's first encyclical Deus Est Caritas - God is love. To love God, we must love our neighbor. To love God, we must live the commandments. (p. 106)
