Living as Missionary Disciples in a Challenging World

 "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations."  Those words remind us of God challenges for those who believe in him 'to go forth.”  Yet within these challenging times, how can we do this safely and effectively. 

Pope Francis uses the term missionary disciples as a way of describing how we should live our discipleship.  He reminds us that all baptized are meant to be followers of Jesus. In essence, we are meant to be disciples, meaning one who follows.  In this case it is following the teaching of our Lord, Jesus Christ.     

This past February, our Joy of the Gospel Gatherings just started taking the first step to seeing possibilities of what could be before COVID19.  We found it was about support that needs to be patient.  It's about being a sower, that when he sees weeds sprouting among the grain, isn't impatient because of the weeds but takes a step back. By stepping back, we have a chance to refocus and discovery a way that lets the word take flesh and bear the fruits of new life, however imperfect or incomplete it may appear. The key taking small steps forward in the work of evangelization.

This September we began that process by install cameras within St Teresa Church, allowing us to celebrate Mass as well as our St Teresa Novena in person and online.  It was the ability to safely and effectively open both our school and religious education programs with in-class sessions.  In turn, we want to continue to look for opportunities that will help us to refresh, re-energize and refocus our faith community by taking small steps forward in the work of evangelization. 

We will be meeting both online via Zoom (instructions will be provided on how to log into the meeting on your computer) as well as in person at SMG Hall which has been transformed to support social distancing with dividers. 

If you are interested in participating within either of our open discussions, please call our Faith Formation Office. 

Please note, no dates have been scheduled as we want everyone’s input first.  Again, slow and steady.

Prayer

God, Almighty Father, when Mary surrendered herself to your Word, she conceived Christ first in her mind through faith, in her heart through hope and love, and finally in her body through the marvelous operation of your Holy Spirit. By her eagerness to be the mother of your Son, she opened the floodgates of your merciful love for all men and women. May she help all people to live by faith, hope, love, and obedience to your will. May she remind us always that you want to bring salvation to our brothers and sisters through our faith and good works. Help us to accept fully our responsibility to combat the culture of death and foster the culture of life in our American society. We ask this through Christ, Our Lord. Amen.

SPIRITUAL COMMUNION PRAYER

My Jesus,

I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.

I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul.

Since I cannot at this moment receive You Sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart.

I embrace You as if You were already there and united myself wholly to You.

Never permit me to be separated from You.

Amen
