FIVE SPIRITUAL PRACTICES
"They devoted themselves to the apostles' teachings and fellowship,
to the breaking of bread and the prayers." ACTS 2:42
The Book of Acts is our historical record of what the early disciples believed and practiced. Based on the lessons and examples passed on from Jesus and the first apostles, we can see the priorities that were, and still remain, the foundation of Christian life.
"For where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them."
When we take time away from our busy lives to focus on our relationship with God and the spiritual growth taking place within us, transformation happens.
Whenever we gather 'on purpose' to learn, to give thanks, to share our gifts, and to pray, we gain strength and clarity through one another. If your parish would like to plan a retreat or parish mission, contact us to see if we can help
Fifteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time
Just then a lawyer stood up to test Jesus. "Teacher," he said, "What must I do to inherit eternal life?"
He said to him,
"What is written in the law? What do you read there?"
He answered, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself."
And he said to him, "You have given the right answer; do this, and you will live."

Miracles happen when we share the gifts we have in abundance with others.
