Something to think about...questions for this week
Last Sunday we heard about the descent of the Holy Spirit onto the Apostles and the birth of the Church. Paul implores the Christians in the region of Galatia to "live by the Spirit” – our “Advocate.” Do you allow the Spirit to work in you and through you? Does your life give witness to the Spirit? What can you do better?
(Though it varies from person to person, it generally takes no less than 21 days to develop a new habit. It also takes discipline, courage and determination on a daily basis.)
What is God calling you to do?
Discernment groups are meeting now for those men discerning a call to the priesthood, as well as for women discerning a call to the religious life to help answer the question, 'What is God calling me to do?'.
More information can be found by contacting the Diocesan Office for Vocations at 583-2864.
