Something to think about...questions for this week
We believe that the Eucharist is the preeminent way that Christ is present to us. We also believe that He is present when we read the scriptures. And we know that He is present where two or three are gathered in His name. Where else have you experienced Christ abiding presence? Has there been a time when you realized that Christ had been with you, even though you didn’t recognize it at the time?
(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.
