Each of us is called to be a disciple, a follower of Christ. The life of a disciple is challenging but it is the most fulfilling way to live. Called by name by the God who created us, we are shaped by the teachings of Jesus Christ and continually guided by the Spirit. As we grow more deeply into this identity as disciples of Jesus Christ, we discover the valuable virtues that mark God’s people.
Confidence in the God of Salvation
Our faith gives witness to a God who is worthy of our trust and invites us to model this confidence to those around us. Explore a few key Bible passages that teach us to surrender to the power of divine love and rely on the God who created and redeems us.
God’s Nature, Our Challenge
Jesus calls us to be merciful as his heavenly Father is merciful (Luke:6:36). Explore on of the psalms that offers thanks for God's mercy in salvation history, and reflect on two gospel stories that illustrate the meaning of mercy then and now.
One of the great theological virtues, hope is a sign of our trust in God, the foundation for making our way through difficulties, and an invitation to witness to God's care in our lives. A psalm, a Pauline passage, and a gospel passage allow us to explore this virtue of which our world is in such need.
Hospitality was a hallmark of the ancient Mediterranean world and, according to St. Paul, is among the characteristics to be found in the Body of Christ, the church. True hospitality begins with the recognition of human dignity and the desire to respond effectively to human need. Here Catherine Upchurch, recognized nationally for her keen ability to make the Scriptures come alive for Catholics, explores how three biblical settings encourage us to be people of welcome.
