The incarnation of Christ’s spirituality by the Christians is how they become authentically human, be facing the uginess in ourselves and letting Christ transform us into His image.
Getting a true look at ourselves can be painful but is well worth it.
Because only in so doing can we learn to accept our weaknesses and strengths, overcome and see the beauty in ourselves and others, and develop heartfelt relationships with God and others, thereby becoming the light of Christ in a sin-darkened world.
We live out our faith because “faith without works is empty”(Jm 2:20,26) Only then we can say with St. Paul. “It is no longer / who live, but Christ who lives in me” (Gal. 2:20)
Jesus taught by word and deed the necessity of dying to our old selves (Lk. 22:42,2 Tim 2:11,12) and cooperating with God’s grace (1Per 1:13–16, Rom. 11:22) to daily reject the disordered impulses inherited from the first Adam and “put on the new nature” (Eph. 4:15,24) in Christ.
Looking back at the wonderful trip to Poland and looking forward to the upcomming trip to Panama, Fr. Juan María is the organizer who loves to bring the youth to an experience of the universality of the Church in the great events of the World Youth Days.
It is always great to receive the members of FOCUS and share our ministry with them for two weeks a year. They add so much and bring much joy and hope to the children and youth we minister. If your kids are in college, have them check out if a FOCUS bible study is on campus. They are great blessing to the Church
To Woman is entrusted the task and mission of passing on love and respect, understanding and compassion, hope and peace. To her is entrusted the task of nourishing the spiritual life of her children, bringing the reality of Christ to a broken world, being a symbol of truth and a sing of contradiction in a post Christian age.
