Deuteronomy 6: 4-13 “…’Therefore, you shall love the LORD, your God, with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength.’....”

Psalm 18: 2-3a, 3bc-4, 47 and 51 …I love you, Lord, my strength...”

Matthew 17: 14-20 “…‘Amen, I say to you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘ Move from here to there,’ and it will move.  Nothing will be impossible for you.”

Today’s message in the readings hit home in a particular way.  I felt like Moses pulled me aside and spoke to me in my generation, reminding me to keep God first.  It was remarkable in another way, as I saw how little we change from one generation to the next.  The message could so easily have been written to our generation as we live and move seemingly without stopping so much of the time.  We need the encouragement to teach our children, and keep the thought in front of ourselves, on our wrists, or on our foreheads.   The message was so practical and down to earth; I really felt like I could relate and apply it to my life today as I worry I’m supposed to fix the world I live in by myself.

* Our Way of Life *

 

"Our diverse talents and abilities, our differences in culture, nationality and age are assets for the richness of the community. Although we may be engaged in a variety of ministries, we all share the common call to apostolic discipleship in a community of the Catholic Apostolate of St. Vincent Pallotti."(OWL, 91)

"Christ, the Apostle of the Eternal Father, and his mission are central to our personal and community life, giving meaning and direction to our thinking, our spirituality, our prayer, action and suffering." (OWL, 19)

"As a community of disciples we are gathered around Jesus, the Apostle of the Eternal Father. Like the first disciples, we want to be with Jesus, be sent out by him and return to him to evaluate our service in the light of his presence." (OWL, 88)

"As Pallottines, it is our special charism to foster growth in faith and love among the laity, to awaken them to awareness of their apostolic call, and to cooperate with them in furthering the apostolic mission." (OWL, 21)

"Our relationships with one another should be marked by a love that bears all, believes all and hopes for all, a love that is neither conceited nor jealous, which hurts no one, nor is embittered or resentful. It is never discouraged but remains patient and kind. It rejoices with others and shares their suffering. It is with this kind of love that we should help and support one another." (OWL, 90)
