How we pray and how we act are important to Jesus. When talking about salt he asks, "Salt is good; but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored?" Of course there isn't any real way to restore saltiness to salt. The reality is, through our prayer and coming to know Jesus more deeply in our 'interior life of prayer' and the regular reading of sacred scripture discipleship begins to grow. If we become true disciples and give everything to Jesus, the true cost of discipleship, then we will be like useful salt for God.
This week we also focused on the attributes of Jesus that we have recognized thus far. Check out the video below for further reflection on this weeks theme. The Extended readings for this week in the Catechism of the Catholic Church are: Being useful salt: CCC 782. On Prayer: CCC 520, 1425, 2601, 2632, 2759-2865. Perseverance in Prayer: CCC 728, 2613, 2623, 2671, 2761.

April 4th 2019: Accepting the 'other' and Peters Declaration
This week we discussed Luke 8-10. AHHH!!! There was so much happening! It's so hard to pick a handful of highlights, but the attempt has been made in the video below. The biggest highlights this week is Jesus acceptance of the 'other'. In this context 'other' refers to those who may not be of the same culture, heritage, or even religion. Also, the first climax of Luke happens, Peter declares that Jesus is the Messiah!
For this weeks extended readings to go along with the video Catechism paragraphs: Women in the Church: 641, Transfiguration: 516, 554, 1151, 2583, 2600 Accepting the 'other' or our neighbor who isn't even from our own faith, culture, or homeland: 2822, 1825, 2083
For next week, join us in reading Luke 11-14
We are gathering at St. Vincents School 5:30 PM Thursday, April 11th
