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

Mar 28/29

Since God's very self has been and is being revealed to us, it means that we are called to pay attention to how and when that is happening so that we become capable of, as St. Ignatius of Loyola said, "finding God in all things." (p. 16)

Finding God in all things by Bishop Barron

Mar 21/22

When we recognize that God is the initiator, the instigator, the proactive One, we come to realize that our task in life is to discern God’s will and to respond as Jesus did, “thy will be done.” (p. 15)

Since the moment of our birth, God has been pursuing us, seeking us out, and inviting us to a deeper relationship with him. The saints were not people who were spiritually proactive. Rather, they were people who were highly responsive to God’s invitation. (p. 14)

Saints in the Making

Mar 7/8

This may come as a surprise. Revelation is often thought of as some type of mystical experience reserved for selected prophets, saints, and visionaries. However, revelation simply refers to the act of God revealing himself to us in order to enter into a deeper relationship with us. (p. 12)
