Retreat Guide on Calling of 12 Apostles: The Complete Christian

A good motto is a rallying cry that motivates, focuses, and energizes. When a priest is named a bishop, he always chooses a motto to serve as a guide along the difficult path of his mission.

We all have a mission, and we all have tough stretches along the path of life. Why not choose a motto for our Christian journey?

In this month’s Retreat Guide, The Complete Christian: A Retreat Guide on the Calling of the Twelve Apostles, we would like to offer one, based on the three essential elements that Jesus reveals in that Gospel passage:
·        The first element is prayer – we’ll look at it in the first meditation.
·        The second element is fellowship – we’ll look at that in the second meditation.
·        And the third element, which we will examine in the conference, is apostolate, or apostolic action.

To pray, to love, to give. Not bad for a motto. Though some would say that it sounds even better in Latin: orare, amare, dare.

 

As always, this Retreat Guide can be watched, listened to, or read – whichever helps you pray better. Check it out now at www.RCSpirituality.org (scroll down the page for retreat number nine) or on Vimeo.
