Mark 6:7-13 - A roadmap for life | Parish News for Thursday, 4/15/21
Three ways to lean into
Holy Spirit in your faith journey
We are faced with opportunities everyday to either lean into the Holy Spirit or to lean away as our faith is tested every day. Whether in big, traffic-stopping ways or small, conscience-niggling ways, we are faced with opportunities every single day to either lean into the Holy Spirit or lean away from him. Each of us, of course, knows the choice we
to make, but we also know that sometimes the choice to lean on the Spirit can be a challenge.

You've read the book,
now see the movie
After reading a great book, I love to think about how great it would be as a movie! I enjoy imagining a live-action portrayal of the story. The same is true when I read Scripture. Our love for Scripture should lead us beyond merely studying Scripture to being immersed in the world of the Bible. For example, imagining the life of Christ, his look of compassion and tenderness, his resolute willingness to face his passion and his joy in sharing his life with his disciples, allow Scripture to come alive in our lives and help us know Christ more deeply.

St. Joseph: Guardian of the mystery of God
St. Joseph understood the new role God planned for him by contemplating Mary’s motherhood, which drew him from fear to taking Mary his wife into his home.
"Joseph did as the angel of the Lord commanded him and took his wife"
It was with this concise and gravid passage signaling the resolution of St. Joseph’s dilemma with which Pope St. John Paul II begins his Apostolic Exhortation on the person and mission of Joseph of Nazareth,
. The incarnation of Jesus Christ, is, as Blessed Columba Marmion taught over a century ago, the mystery upon which all the mysteries of Christ, all the mysteries of our faith, rest.
