This episode serves as a companion and follow up to our "Does God Speak to Me?" episode. Here we are joined by Julie Storr, from Lectio the Liturgy. Julie presented at our recent Draw Near Retreat in which the theme was, "Hearing God's Voice." Julie offers some great practical steps for not only hearing the Lord's voice, but also building a lifestyle in which a relationship with God characterized by talking with your loving Father is not just a wish, but an actual lived experience, rooted in prayer, in Scripture, and in the life of the Holy Spirit. Our journey with the Lord is one that is lived step by step! So many effective spiritual disciplines that help us grow in the life of prayer and relationship with Christ walk us through a process of steps (e.g. Lectio Divina, Ignatian Discernment, the ACTS prayer method, etc). If you are looking for a way to grow deeper in your relationship with Christ, if you are not sure if you have ever heard the Lord speak, this may just be a great place to start! This four step method to hearing God's voice comes from Habakkuk 2:1-2 "I will take my stand at my watchpost and station myself on the tower, and look out to see what he will say to me, and what I will answer concering my complaint. And the LORD answered me: "Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it."" Step 1 Quiet Your Heart and Mind Poistion yourself in faith to hear. I can hear Jesus' voice because he said so (Jn 10:1-5; Jn 1-:27) Step 2 Put Yourself in Jesus' Presence Prepare and quiet yourself to receive. Focus your spiritual eyes on what Jesus wants to give you. Use Scripture, music, art, to help reset your mind. Ask God direct questions. Ask and you shall receive! (Mt 7:7) (e.g. "What do you want me to know right now?" "How do you want to love me today?" "Who have you given me to love today?" Step 3 Pay Attention Pay attention to the spontaneous thougths, images or feelings in your heart that flow like a stream. Step 4 Honor God's Words Honor what the Lord has spoken by writing down what you receive. Do not doubt, just write. This four step method was adapted from Enounter Ministries (https://encounterministries.us/) and the book, The Four Keys to Hearing God's Voice.

In this episode, we conclude our five part study of Christifideles Laici. We discuss how life is a continual maturation process and in order to bear new fruit, we need to put in the effort to grow. Community is an integral part of this formation and we chat about how allowing others into our lives is necessary for this maturation and healing. We have deeply enjoyed journeying with you this summer and are excited to announce that Season 13 will begin on September 25th! God bless you friends and thank you for being a part of our community!

Discussion Questions: How are you being called to grow and mature? Do you believe that Jesus desires to heal you? How can you open your life to healing? How are you letting yourself be formed? Journal Questions: Where does the Holy Spirit long to bring fruit in my life? Are the fruits of the Holy Spirit present in my emotions? Are the fruits of the Holy Spirit present in my relationship with my spouse? With my community? With my children? Are the fruits of the Holy Spirit present in my home? At work? Do I have a teachable spirit? Quotes to Ponder: The gospel image of the vine and the branches reveals to us another fundamental aspect of the lay faithful's life and mission:the call to growth and a continual process of maturation, of always bearing much fruit. (Christifideles Laici Paragraph 57) To be able to discover the actual will of the Lord in our lives always involves the following: a receptive listening to the Word of God and the Church, fervent and constant prayer, recourse to a wise and loving spiritual guide, and a faithful discernment of the gifts and talents given by God, as well as the diverse social and historic situations in which one lives. (Christifideles Laici Paragraph 58) Scripture for Lectio: "He who abides in me and I in him bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing." -John 15:5 Sponsor - January Jane Shop: January Jane Shop is an online Catholic boutique known for their unique lifestyle products, including trending apparel, vintage stationery, mugs, folk art, tea towels, and other eclectic gifts.

In this episode, we continue with part three of our study on Christifideles Laici. We discuss how we are all called to evangelization, how our unique gifts allow us to bring Christ's light to the world in different ways, and how our lives can be a living witness of what we believe. We also reflect on why community with family, friends, and our parishes is essential in cultivating mission, and how our mission is reciprocally accomplished within communion.

How are you being called to participate in the time of re-evangelization? How are you experiencing a paralytic spirit of fear? Where in your life do you want to invite the Holy Spirit into? Journal Questions: Who am I? Where do I belong? How is God inviting me to make a gift of my life? How can I be salt and light to the world? Is my life bearing the fruit of communion? Quotes to Ponder: Communion and mission are profoundly connected with each other, they interpenetrate and mutually imply each other, to the point that communion represents both the source and the fruit of mission: communion gives rise to mission and mission is accomplished in communion (Christifideles Laici Paragraph 32) The family is the basic cell of society. It is the cradle of life and love, the place in which the individual "is born" and "grows". (Christifideles Laici Paragraph 40) Scripture for Lectio: "Each branch of mine that bears no fruit, he (my Father) takes away." John 15:2 Sponsor - SOLT Motherhouse Campaign Instead of a sponsor today, we wanted to highlight a fundraising campaign that is very near and dear to our hearts. The SOLT Sisters (Sister Miriam's order!) are building a Motherhouse in Corpus Christi, TX so that they can not only provide housing and medical care for their aging sisters, but also so they can better serve their community locally and abroad. The mission of the SOLT sisters is to be the light of Christ in areas of deepest apostolic need. They serve in many capacities including education, evangelization, pastoral care, retreats, health care, and drug rehabilitation. The sisters have already raised over $5.5M and are 73% of the way to their $7.5M goal. If you feel the call to donate to the Motherhouse Campaign, you can visit SOLT.net/motherhouse. There you can learn more about the campaign, donate, make a pledge, or share the word about the mission of the beautiful SOLT sisters. If you want to help the SOLT sisters but feel like you are unable to do so financially, join us in saying a prayer for their campaign.

[LA] Prope finem libri secundi confessionum suarum, Augustinus noster cum Deo colloquium serens peccati sui causam quaeritat. Post minutissimam inquisitionem eam tandem reperit. [EN] In today's podcast we will continue reading the confessions of Saint Augustine. At the end of the second book, Augustino tries to find out what is the cause of his sin: why he stole the fruits. After a long investigation he finds an answer.
In this episode, we continue with part two of our study on Christifideles Laici. We chat about unity within the Catholic Church, the role of your local parish, and the importance of community. We reflect on how easy it is to focus on the differences we encounter instead of the beauty of its complementarity and rich diversity. We discuss the need to restore the culture and how participation in our parish communities can build communion and encourage others to develop an authentic love of Jesus. Heather's One Thing - Family photos taken by Laura-Anne Heather's Other One Thing - The song Pure Abbie Gamboa from Upper Room Sister Miriam's One Thing - The Godsplaining Podcast with Fr. Gregory Pine Michelle's One Thing - Lavender Lemonade and Lavender Lemonade Cupcakes (Gluten Free Version Here). This is the lavender syrup I used. Discussion Questions: What is your investment in your local parish? How have you engaged with the Church with a consumerist mentality? Where in my heart do I fall into divisive thinking about the Church? What gifts and charisms is God inviting you to use in service of the Church? Journal Questions: How have I experienced communion with my parish and the Body of Christ at large? Am I allowing the gifts and preferences of others to be seen in the lens of complementarity? Am I praying for communion and revival within the Church? Quotes to Ponder: 'Communion' speaks of a double, lifegiving participation: the incorporation of Christians into the life of Christ, and the communication of that life of charity to the entire body of the Faithful, in this world and in the next, union with Christ and in Christ, and union among Christians, in the Church" (Christifideles Laici Paragraph 19) A member of the lay faithful "can never remain in isolation from the community, but must live in a continual interaction with others, with a lively sense of fellowship, rejoicing in an equal dignity and common commitment to bring to fruition the immense treasure that each has inherited. (Christifideles Laici Paragraph 20) Scripture for Lectio: “Abide in me and I in you” John 15:4 Sponsor - Endow Endow seeks to educate women toward a more profound understanding of their God-given dignity through study in small group communities of faith and friendship. John Paul II once said: “Woman has a genius all her own which is vitally essential to both society and the Church.” The Church needs you to be empowered to cultivate the feminine genius in every aspect of life and society. There are women just like you looking for friendship and who are looking to learn from the intellectual tradition of the Church. Be transformed by studying John Paul II's On the Dignity and Vocation of Women in an 8, 10, or 12-week Endow group. Start or join a group with other women to ponder the anthropology of man and woman, God's intention for their relationship, woman's vocation to motherhood, and the Church as Bride of Christ. Visit endowgroups.org for more resources on how to join or start your own Endow group.
562 Saul Why Are You Persecuting Me? A Guided Christian Meditation on Acts 9:1-6 with the Recenter With Christ app The purpose of this podcast is to help you find more peace in your life and connect with the true source of peace, Jesus Christ. Outline: Relaxation, Reading, Meditation, Prayer, Contemplation and Visualization. Get into a place where you can sit comfortably and uninterrupted for about 20 minutes.You should hopefully not be driving or anything tensing or unrelaxing. If you feel comfortable to do so, I invite you to close your eyes. Guided Relaxation / Guided Meditation: Breathe and direct your thoughts to connecting with God. Let your stomach be a balloon inflate, deflate. Scripture for Meditation ESV 1 But Saul, still breathing threats and murder against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest 2 and asked him for letters to the synagogues at Damascus, so that if he found any belonging to the Way, men or women, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem. 3 Now as he went on his way, he approached Damascus, and suddenly a light from heaven shone around him. 4 And falling to the ground, he heard a voice saying to him, “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me?” 5 And he said, “Who are you, Lord?” And he said, “I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting. 6 But rise and enter the city, and you will be told what you are to do.” NKJV 1 Then Saul, still breathing threats and murder against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest 2 and asked letters from him to the synagogues of Damascus, so that if he found any who were of the Way, whether men or women, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem. 3 As he journeyed he came near Damascus, and suddenly a light shone around him from heaven. 4 Then he fell to the ground, and heard a voice saying to him, “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?” 5 And he said, “Who are You, Lord?” Then the Lord said, “I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting. It is hard for you to kick against the goads.” 6 So he, trembling and astonished, said, “Lord, what do You want me to do?” Then the Lord said to him, “Arise and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.” Meditation: Saul, who later would have his name changed to Paul, was a man trying to carry out the law of Moses. He aggressively was seeking to carry out the law which would demand justice for sacrilege specifically for someone saying they were the son of God when they were not. Before his conversion, he didn't know or understand that this was God's true law so he tried to have them punished according to the law of Moses. By all evidence Paul is a passionate person who pursues the will of the Lord as he sees it. He was trying to do God's will although imperfectly. He sees vision and immediately seeks to change his actions to what the Lord requests.. The phrase kick against the pricks or goads is not in every ancient manuscript so some translations dont include it, but it is a reference to an equivalent of ancient cattle prods to move animals. If the animal kicked against the direction from the master it would be hurt. Paul was being hurt by his actions that were in contrast to what God wanted for his disciples. Weather in the form of a tormented conscience, or other spiritual consequences.This presents an incredibly valuable lesson for us who seek God's justice and mercy on earth Saul is afraid and immediately seeks to follow the direction God may give. The answer God gives is a simple one. The next right step. He does not lay out the whole gospel to Paul. He just points him in the right direction. Many times our corrections come this way. If you seek the Lords direction, be willing to take the next right step. Meditation of Prayer: Pray as directed by the Spirit. Dedicate these moments to the patient waiting, when you feel ready ask God for understanding you desire from Him. Meditation of God and His Glory / Hesychasm: I invite you to sit in silence feeling patient for your own faults and trials.

In this episode, we begin our five part summer study of St. Pope John Paul II's Apostolic Exhortation, Christifideles Laici: on the vocation and the mission of the lay faithful in the Church and in the world. We share why we are excited for the study, ways we have been personally convicted to grow in faith, and what the universal call to holiness looks like in our everyday lives. In a time when darkness seems to be growing, we ponder how Jesus is the hope for humanity and the sense of urgency we should feel in being His light bearers to the world. The Lord has called you to holiness and to bear fruit in this world, wherever you may find yourself. Friends, in our study of Christifideles Laici, you will hear us talk about the recurring theme of community. While reading this apostolic exhortation and listening to each episode by yourself will certainly bear fruit in your life, we want to take a moment to encourage you to reach out to your friends and start a small group to discuss each chapter. We provide on our website journaling and discussion questions you can use, download, and print to begin the conversations. Our hope is that wherever you are, you can build authentic friendships, rooted in Christ, with those around you.

What questions do you have before we dive in? How is God calling you to recognize the sacredness of the human person in your daily life? As we discussed in the Lenten study, how have you seen God invite you on mission in this season? Where is your place in the vineyard and what does it look like? Journal Questions: What words am I speaking into my family, my community, and my culture? What sensitivities am I noticing in my heart to the challenges and limitations in the world around me? How can I help? How is God inviting me into deeper prayer and surrender in my daily life? Quote to Ponder: The gospel records that the weeds and the good grain grew together in the farmer's field. The same is true in history, where in everyday life, there often exist contradictions in the exercise of human freedom, where there is found, side by side and at times closely intertwined, evil and good, injustice and justice, anguish and hope.

One of the most fundamental beliefs of the Christian faith is that the Bible is God's Word—and these words speak to us. The Scriptures spoke to generations before us, and will speak to generations after us until Christ returns. This is why we love to study the Scriptures inductively—taking into account the context of the text, making observations, drawing reasonable inferences, and applying these truths to our lives as the Holy Spirit guides us. BEGIN WITH PRAYER Begin in prayer, asking the Holy Spirit to lead and guide your time today. INTRO QUESTIONS Spend a few minutes reflecting on the past week. Think through the following questions: Were you able to spend time drafting a digital rule of life? If so, how did it go for you? What did you notice about your current digital habits? Did anything surprise you or give you pause? Was there anything you tried that you found helpful? Was there anything frustrating? SCRIPTURE READING Read the following scripture passage: Psalm 119:9-16 APPLICATION Careful study of the Bible is essential to a healthy Christian life and community. And it is not the only way to let our lives be shaped by God's Word and the Holy Spirit. Lectio divina, Latin for “divine reading,” is a devotional reading of Scripture that has existed for over 1,700 years. This practice emerged when literacy rates were low, and accessibility to written texts were few and far between. Communities of believers used this method to enable followers of Jesus—with or without a copy of the Bible (or an ability to read it)—to receive God's Word and consider how to respond. Practicing this spiritual discipline opens us up to more ways to hear from, experience, and respond to God—individually and communally. A benefit of lectio divina is that there is less temptation to read solely in order to consume information (a temptation to study inductively). In whatever way you interact with the Bible, Scripture is meant to be read with ears open to hear God's voice through his Word and respond! See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Matthew 11 : 25-30 Psalm 145 Guest David Roman- "Coach Roman" Maybe you've done lectio, but have you done Lectio while sweating in a hot room with a baseball/football/wrestling coach? You haven't?

This month Julie is sharing a sermon she preached at Detroit Church entitled, “Qualified!” No matter if you are irreligious, a “total heathen,” or a regular church-goer, Jesus' invitation to you is the same: “Follow me.” How you respond to that invitation matters far more than who you were before! If you'd like to have Julie come speak to your church, retreat, or camp, you can contact her here.Some key takeaways:How you encounter Jesus varies wildly depending on who you already think you are.Jesus breaks the shackles of preconceived ideas & stereotypes of himself as well as those he encounters.When Jesus says, “Follow me,” it's an invitation to a holy calling, a greater purpose, and a true identity!Recommendations:Read: Living Fearless by Jamie WinshipListen: Pete Grieg's pilgrimage on Lectio 365 appTo see if coaching is right for you, Click here to set up a FREE discovery call with Julie.Connect with Julie at juliebeader.comThis podcast is listener supported.

In our final episode of Season 12, we dive deep into how the Lord has been working in our lives since we began the season in January. We acknowledge how easy it is to get caught up in the struggles of life and forget to take time to stop, pause, and remember the blessings we have received. We open up about the seeds the Lord has planted in our hearts, the areas in our lives He is re-awakening, and the spiritual fruit we have seen blossoming. Through our vulnerability, we hope you are inspired this summer to reflect on how the Lord has been working in your life and share it with someone you're close to. Friends, we have enjoyed every moment of season 12 and are excited for where the Lord takes us next. Thank you for being on this journey of life with us. We hope you join us for our summer study that begins July 17 and our next season beginning in September. Heather's One Thing - The song Tend by Bethel and my fruit salad tree Sister Miriam's One Thing - The song Detour by Sarah Kroger (lyric video) or (live performance) Michelle's One Thing - The song - Benediction (Live) + Before, Behind, Beside (Spontaneous) by Rachel Morley & Kory Miller Discussion Questions: What is the spirit saying to you? Where is He blowing? What is being reawakened? What seeds have been planted in this past season? Where do we see choice fruit in your life? What desires has God placed on your heart? Journal Questions: How has the Lord been awakening my heart in this season? What needs to be nurtured and tended to in my heart? What needs to be pruned? What have I been learning about how God made me? Quote to Ponder: Holy Spirit, making life alive, moving in all things, root of all creative being, cleansing the cosmos of every impurity, effacing guilt, anointing wounds. You are lustrous and praiseworthy life. You waken and re-awaken everything that is. - St. Hildegard Scripture for Lectio: “Awake, north wind, and come south wind! Blow on my garden, that its fragrance may spread everywhere. Let my beloved come into his garden and taste its choice fruits.” - Song of Songs 4:16 Sponsor - Chews Life: At Chews Life, it is their mission to equip all Catholics with Rosaries for life. Chews Life believes that even the youngest Catholic can develop a devotion to the Rosary and come to know our Mother Mary. Their silicone Rosaries make this possible. Children discover through their senses, especially touch. Just as a baby knowingly caresses their mother's face, so too their little hands will come to know the Rosary and cherish it. Chews Life also makes Rosaries for adults! Chews Life's Rosaries are actually rosary bracelets, tha are designed to be with you all day and easily accessible. Each Rosary bracelets also feature a “bookmark” crucifix charm so that if you don't have time to get through a whole Rosary at once, you can use this charm to hold your place until you can continue your prayer.

In this episode, we welcome Jill Simons as our guest to talk about Charisms. A charism is a grace from God we are called to use to build up His Kingdom here on earth. We acknowledge a deep lie that many people believe they don't have anything special to offer our communities or the Church, but the truth is that charisms are given to every person by God. Jill offers practical tools to help discern your charisms, the theology behind charisms, and how charisms work within our vocations. Heather's One Thing - The song Most Beautiful by Upperroom and the unity that is increasing among denominations Sister Miriam's One Thing - The St. Joseph Consecration on Hallow beginning May 1st (read by Sr. Miriam) Michelle's One Thing - A Home in Bloom: Four Enchanted Seasons with Flowers by Christie Purifoy and The Blessed is She Journaling Bible Jill's One Thing - Encounter School of Ministry Resources Mentioned in this Episode: Many Parts Ministries Pink Salt Riot Many Parts on Instagram Pink Salt Riot on Instagram Jill Simon's Instagram Discussion Questions: What gifts and charisms has God entrusted to you? Who in your life lives out their charisms in freedom, boldness and generosity? What have you learned from them? How do you experience Christ's love and intimacy through your charisms and prayer? How have you silenced or hidden the gifts you've been given or the call on your heart? Journal Questions: How do I relate to my own gifts and charisms? Do I operate out of a performance mindset? How do my charisms play a role with my vocation and the people around me? What is the story of the Kingdom of God that the Lord is telling through my life and my charisms? How is Jesus encountering me through my charisms and gifts? What have I learned about my identity as the beloved through my charisms? Quote to Ponder: Christ has no body but yours, No hands, no feet on earth but yours, Yours are the eyes with which He looks Compassion on this world, Yours are the feet with which He walks to do good, Yours are the hands, with which He blesses all the world. Yours are the hands, yours are the feet, Yours are the eyes, you are His body. Christ has no body now but yours, No hands, no feet on earth but yours, Yours are the eyes with which he looks compassion on this world. Christ has no body now on earth but yours. — St. Teresa of Ávila (attributed) Scripture for Lectio: For God's gifts and His call are irrevocable. - Romans 11:29 Sponsor - Mary's Meals: Mary's Meals sets up community-run school feeding projects in some of the world's poorest communities, where poverty and hunger prevent children from gaining an education. The idea is a simple one that works. Mary's Meals provides one daily meal in a place of learning to attract chronically poor children into the classroom, where they receive an education that can, in the future, be their ladder out of poverty. Today, Mary's Meals is providing more than 2.4 million children with a daily school meal across five continents. But the need is great! The appalling reality is that there are still 73 million children living in extreme poverty in need of school feeding. Please help to reach the next hungry child waiting for Mary's Meals.

In this episode, we continue with part six of our Lenten book study Be Transformed by Dr. Bob Schuchts. We discuss how the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick heals the wound of hopelessness and share the different ways we approach these dark and sometimes scary places in life. While, in the moment, it may appear that we are alone, God never leaves us and wants to restore our hope in Him. Whenever you experience hopelessness, we invite you to surrender your sorrows to Him and courageously place your hope in our faithful God. Hey friends! We are going to continue this series with one more bonus episode next Monday, April 3rd to share further insights and conclude Be Transformed.

Michelle's One Thing - Missionaries! Other resources mentioned in this episode: S6 E13 - The Light Shines in the Darkness with Fr. Justin Brady Why Your Story Makes It Hard to Hope - Adam Young (The Place We Find Ourselves Podcast) Discussion Questions: Is Jesus' resurrection real and important in your daily life? What prevents you from believing that Jesus is who He says He is? For which wounds or sorrows have you started to lose hope for healing? What is the truth that God is inviting you to proclaim in response to feelings of hopelessness? Journal Questions: How have you encountered the sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick? Where in my life do I experience hopelessness? What obstacles in my life and heart make it hard for me to experience hope? What does the Holy Spirit need to remind me of in this season of life? Quotes to Ponder: “Every temptation comes down to this one final temptation, it is the temptation to believe that the satisfaction of the deepest desires of our heart is totally up to us.” - Fr. Albacete Healing and miracles often increase our hope, but they are not the basis for our hope. We have another more trustworthy, rock-solid foundation for our hope: the person, Jesus Christ, who describes himself as “the resurrection and the life.” He told Martha, anyone who believes in him will never die (see Jn11:25-26). Holding firm to this hope, we are promised a share in his life. All of us who believe in the Resurrection are already “raised to life” This is our hope. - Be Transformed, pg 150 Scripture for Lectio: "Cure the sick, raise the dead." - Matthew 10:7–8 Sponsor - Leanne Bowen: Today's sponsor is Leanne Bowen Fine Art.

In this week's episode, we continue with part three of our Lenten book study Be Transformed by Dr. Bob Schuchts. First, we discuss how Holy Communion heals the wound of abandonment, ponder what it means to allow the fullness of this Sacrament take root in our lives, and reflect on the beauty that Jesus will never leave us. Then, we move into how Confirmation heals the wound of powerlessness and share ways the Holy Spirit has inspired us to do things we never could do on our own. Hey friends! We know that Be Transformed is packed with incredible things, so we encourage you to not feel the need to rush. We want this to be a place where you can rest and be with the Holy Spirit. If you find yourself stuck on a chapter, we invite you to take the time you need and join us again when ready. May God bless you and bring you healing through His Sacraments!

Quotes to Ponder: “Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me and I in him” - John 6:56 “Anointing is not an act, but rather a state or mode of being and behaving and, so to say, a whole style of living.” - Fr.

Ever struggled to focus on reading the Bible? You're not alone! Today, I want to talk about one of my favorite ways to read and focus on God's Word. It's called "lectio divina," which is Latin for “divine reading.”.This practice was used by Christians long before it was common for individuals to be able to read or have a Bible of their own. Lectio divina is a four-step process that allows us to chew on God's Word, reflecting on the story of the good news of Jesus no matter what Bible passage we read, because the whole Bible centers around Jesus's life, death, resurrection, and return. The four steps are read, pray, meditate, and contemplate..1. Read: Begin by reading or listening to a Bible passage out loud. After that, take a moment or two just to sit with what you've heard..2. Meditate: Read or listen to the same Bible passage out loud again, keeping an eye out for words or phrases that stick out to you..3. Pray: Read or listen to the Bible passage again. After that, take a moment to pray about the word(s) that stuck out to you. You can talk to God about what you liked or didn't like, things you have questions about, etc..4. Contemplate: Read or listen to the Bible passage one last time. Finally, take a moment to focus on the word(s) that stuck out to you, resting in God's love and in the unshakeable hope of Jesus's life, death, resurrection, and return. • Kandi Zeller.• Every word of the Bible points to Jesus. He is fully human and fully God, and He offers rescue from sin and death to all who put their trust in His death and resurrection. How can meditating on these truths help us as we read Scripture?.“All the prophets testify about him [Jesus] that through his name everyone who believes in him receives forgiveness of sins.” Acts 10:43 (CSB)

Have you had an experience where Christ encountered you deeply in the Sacraments? Please share. Where in my life do I observe how each of the Sacraments impact my identity and my relationships? What fears, concerns, or intrigue do you have about this upcoming season of Lent and diving into the Sacraments? Journal Questions: What am I seeking from Christ in the Sacraments this Lent? How do I currently engage in the Sacramental life of the Church? Where in my life do I need more humility? How can I create more space for communion with others in my life, my home, my church, and my community? Quotes to Ponder: Celebrated worthily in faith, the sacraments confer the grace that they signify. They are efficacious because in them Christ himself is at work: it is he who baptizes, he who acts in his sacraments in order to communicate the grace that each sacrament signifies. The Father always hears the prayer of his Son's Church which, in the epiclesis of each sacrament, expresses her faith in the power of the Spirit. As fire transforms into itself everything it touches, so the Holy Spirit transforms into the divine life, whatever is subjected to his power. - CCC# 1127 “The desire and work of the Spirit in the heart of the Church is that we may live the life of the risen Christ.” - CCC, 1099 The sacraments are God's chosen remedy for healing our deadly wounds and infusing our souls with Christ's resurrection life. - Be Transformed, pg xv In the words of St. John Paul II: “The Holy Spirit [working through the sacraments] . . . purifies from everything that disfigures man . . . , he heals even the deepest wounds of human existence.” - Be Transformed, pg xv But when inspired and empowered by the Holy Spirit, our personal mission becomes a dynamic participation in Jesus' work of restoring all things to the Father. - CCC 850 Fr. Jacques Philippe expresses this common human condition of ours with great insight: “It is worth reflecting on the problem of pride. We are all born with a deep wound, experienced as a lack of being. We seek to compensate by constructing a self, different from our real self. This artificial self requires large amounts of energy to maintain it; being fragile, it needs protecting. Woe to anyone who contradicts it, threatens it, questions it, or inhibits its expansion. When the Gospel says we must ‘die to ourselves,' it means this artificial ego, this constructed self, must die, so that the real self, given us by God, can emerge.” - Be Transformed, pg 2 Scripture for Lectio: “All of us, gazing with unveiled faces on the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory.” - 2 Corinthians 3:18 Sponsor - CORDA Candles: Draw closer to the saints and create a peaceful place of prayer with CORDA candles.

Are you worn out? Burned out? Feeling exhausted or bone-weary? If so, Jesus invites you to come to him, and he will help you find life again.He will help you find the rest you need. Not the rest that comes from a good night's sleep or a delightful nap, although those are good and needed. No, Jesus is offering you the kind of rest that is found deep in the soul.The kind that no one can take away from you. That can help you face any situation. We are meditating on this promise of Jesus from Matthew 11 using the Lectio Divina Scripture meditation method. Settle in, breathe deep, and see where the Spirit guides you. Once you've meditated on the passage, then listen in to the conversation I have with Bonnie Gray, soul care coach and author, on her book “Breathe” and how the Lord helped Bonnie learn how to cope with her own anxiety and depression through breathing, breath prayer and lectio divina.

Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you'll recover your life. I'll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won't lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you'll learn to live freely and lightly.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
In this episode, we discuss how easy it is to settle for less than what God offers by clinging to earthly idols and loving other things more than Him. We share about some of our own idols and how turning to God instead has transformed our hearts. We admit how easy it is to accept less than the fullness of life in Jesus and turn to something or someone else in our sorrows. The truth is that Jesus is the only One who can truly satisfy us and bring real comfort in the broken places. Heather's One Thing - As the Deer Heather's Other One Thing - “Return” by Fr.

What good things in your life is the Lord calling you to reorder? How might the Lord be inviting you to give up your idols in Lent? What healing have I experienced in the past from loving Christ the most? Journal Questions: Who/what do I love the most? What am I placing my salvation in rather than God? What idols is the Lord inviting me to give up? What fears do I have about intimacy with the Lord? Quotes to Ponder: “It would seem that Our Lord finds our desires not too strong, but too weak. We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily pleased.” ― C.S. Lewis, The Weight of Glory “Our boat - your talents, your hopes, your achievements - is worth nothing whatsoever unless you leave it in Christ's hands, allowing him the freedom to come aboard. Make sure you don't turn it into an idol. In your boat by yourself, if you try to do without the Master, you are - supernaturally speaking - making straight for shipwreck. Only if you allow and seek his presence and captaincy will you be safe from the storms and setbacks of life. Place everything in God's hands. Let your thoughts, the brave adventures you have imagined, your lofty human ambitions, your noble loves, pass through the heart of Christ. Otherwise, sooner or later, they will sink to the bottom together with your selfishness.” ― St. Josemaria Escriva “Let yourself be vulnerable. Let your walls down, your carefully constructed fortresses breached, your fiercely guarded heart laid bare. Let your wounds be touched, your fears revealed, your deepest desires, damaged dreams, and most daring hopes unveiled before the Bridegroom, who has the power to redeem, restore, and resurrect them. Drop your independence and the idea—which you clutch so tightly—that you can do anything to protect and save yourself. And LET HIM LOVE YOU.” ― St Elizabeth Scripture for Lectio: “‘For I will take you out of the nations; I will gather you from all the countries and bring you back into your own land. I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean; I will cleanse you from all your impurities and from all your idols. I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws.” ―Ezekiel 36:24 - 27 Sponsor - Be Love Revolution: Ten years ago, Be Love Revolution began with the intention of helping young women know the personal and transformative love of Jesus, and empowering them to be God's love in the world today.
