STEWARDSHIP REFLECTIONS

“…the Gentiles are co-heirs, members of the same body, and co-partners in the promise in Christ Jesus through the Gospel.” (Ephesians 3:6)

Today we celebrate that Christ came to all of us, not just the Hebrews. He has given each of us unique gifts. We all have different yet equally valuable roles to play in the Body of Christ. Pray daily and ask God how He wants you to use your gifts so that we may all “be one”.

WEEKLY CATECHISM:

CHAPTER THREE: I BELIEVE IN THE HOLY SPIRIT
Article 9 I BELIEVE IN THE HOLY CATHOLIC CHURCH
Paragraph 2 The Church—People of God, Body of Christ, Temple of the Holy Spirit

A priestly, prophetic, and royal people

783 Jesus Christ is the one whom the Father anointed with the Holy Spirit and established as priest, prophet, and king. The whole People of God participates in these three offices of Christ and bears the responsibilities for mission and service that flow from them.208
784 On entering the People of God through faith and Baptism, one receives a share in this people’s unique, priestly vocation: “Christ the Lord, high priest taken from am ong men, has made this new people ‘a kingdom of priests to God, his Father.’ The baptized, by regeneration and the anointing of the Holy Spirit, are consecrated to be a spiritual house and a holy priesthood.”209
785“The holy People of God shares also in Christ’s prophetic office,” above all in the supernatural sense of faith that belongs to the whole People, lay and clergy, when it “unfailingly adheres to this faith . . . once for all delivered to the saints,”210 and when it deepens its understanding and becomes Christ’s witness in the midst of this world.
786 Finally, the People of God shares in the royal office of Christ. He exercises his kingship by drawing all men to himself through his death and Resurrection.211 Christ, King and Lord of the universe, made himself the servant of all, for he came “not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”212 For the Christian, “to reign is to serve him,” particularly when serving “the poor and the suffering, in whom the Church recognizes the image of her poor and suffering founder.”213 The People of God fulfills its royal dignity by a life in keeping with its vocation to serve with Christ.
The sign of the cross makes kings of all those reborn in Christ and the anointing of the Holy Spirit consecrates them as priests, so that, apart from the particular service of our ministry, all spiritual and rational Christians are recognized as members of this royal race and sharers in Christ’s priestly office. What, indeed, is as royal for a soul as to govern the body in obedience to God? And what is as priestly as to dedicate a pure conscience to the Lord and to offer the spotless offerings of devotion on the altar of the heart?214

IGNATIAN SPIRITUAL EXERCISES

OLM is hosting the Spiritual Exercises for the year 2019 – 2020. The retreat lasts almost 9 months and is individually directed (each participant has their own personal Retreat Director; so each person’s retreat is personalized & unique). It is Church approved, originally by Pope Paul III in 1548 (as part of the Catholic Reformation), composed by St. Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Jesuits. It is a compilation of classical Catholic spirituality including the “devotio moderna”. This Retreat focuses on facilitating one’s actual Experience of God – and a practicum of Discernment involving finding the Lord in the deepest areas of one’s soul. By praying through one’s own life and the life of Christ, one experiences God’s Presence, Healing, and Call to salvation and vocation, including any major life decisions. Application deadline: Jan 15, 2019. Registration fee: $100 (bursaries available). For more info: Thelma 778.789-4238 or website http://jsav.ca/ or to apply [email protected]
