The Family: The first school of Discipleship

It was not, of course, an ideal environment for growing in the faith, and it was probably a different environment than most of you face, but, whatever the circumstances, God provides what we need, if we make good use of what He has made available.

La Familia: Primera escuela del discipulado

Crecí en una granja en el noreste de Kansas, donde montar a caballo a nuestra escuela de un sola salón, cuidando de los cerdos y el ganado, trabajando en los campos, y pasar tiempo con la familia vino tan naturalmente como respirar.

Discipleship: Continuing Conversion in our Journey of Faith

Friendship with Jesus does not begin with our human initiative. It begins with Him. “Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you,” He tells us (Cf. Jer 1:5), “before you were born I dedicated you.”

El discipulado: Conversión constante en nuestro camino de fe

Amistad con Jesús no comienza con la iniciativa humana. Comienza con Él. “Antes de formarte en el vientre materno, yo te conocía”, nos dice (Jeremías 1:5), “antes de que salieras del seno, yo te había consagrado”.

Discipleship: A Journey, not a Destination

Mark the Evangelist recounts a telling story about a blind man named Bartimaeus cured by Jesus because of his professed faith. After Bartimaeus was healed of his blindness, he followed Him “along the way” (Mk 10:52); that is, he became His disciple.

El discipulado: Un viaje, no un destino

Marcos el evangelista relata una historia acerca de un hombre ciego llamado Bartimeo curado por Jesús a causa de su fe profesada.

‘Do whatever He tells you’

“Do whatever He tells you” (Jn 2:5). These words of the Mother of God at the Wedding Feast of Cana are like a bright beacon pointing the way to our happiness and the way to the Heart of Christ.

‘Haced lo que Él os diga’

“Haced lo que él os diga” (Juan 2:5). Estas palabras de la Madre de Dios en la Fiesta de la Boda de Caná son como un faro luminoso que señala el camino de nuestra felicidad y el Corazón de Cristo.

Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

The famous Russian author Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn spent nearly 50 years studying the history of the bloody revolution that took the lives of some 60 million of his countrymen. In the process, he read hundreds of books, collected personal testimonies and wrote volumes on the Communist Revolution in Russia. He concluded, “men have forgotten God.”
