Vocation, a divine call from God to devote oneself to his services. As a catholic it is my job to serve God, not just as a St. Lucy student today but after I graduate and throughout my life. In order to lead out a vocation it is important to practice ministry. Ministry allows us to spread the good word of the Lord and as a way for us to introduce our faith to others. This is important to church growth both physically and spiritually.
After a few visits, we now talk more frequently and even hosted a day for all of my remaining family to get together. I was able to reach over and share some of the class material during a recent call and was encouraged to her them take the subjects into prayer and study. I prayed that God could use me when I first applied to Liberty University, and that he would help me with my steps. This course has provided a medium to help share scriptures and encourage others as he provides for our
From daily masses to days of holy obligation, or certain dates that require the devout to attend a special mass for important religious holidays such as Easter, music is vital to the Catholic Church. Mass in itself is considered to be one large song and with prayers sung by the priest and congregation, this music allows the words sung to reveal the true meaning of the sacred mysteries that cannot be understood in words alone. Through singing, besides allowing for more understanding of the word of God, brings the congregation together as one to worship as community is an important aspect of Catholicism and a reason it is considered a sin to skip Sunday Mass. This communal characteristic of Catholicism, in combination with a musical liturgical worship, creates a wedding with the focus being centered on the sacrament being performed with the support of the community around the couple, and unveiling the mysteries of God that can otherwise be not
Since then, I knew something had to be done- I pushed myself past the point I never knew I was capable of. The struggles did hurt, but I never stopped. I kept moving forward, suddenly realizing that I needed to slowly put the pieces back together and battle my illness. Growing up, I was relatively thin and ate less than the average boy. My friends always mocked me for being underweight and questioned me when I did not feel comfortable showing my
My Catholic school education has instilled in me the Catholic values and way of life. We have helped out the less fortunate, dying, sick, hungry, and elderly in our community. I was a captain of our Dance Marathon which raised over $34,000 dollars this year for the University of Iowa’s Children’s Hospital. We help these people without judgement. Everyone deserves respect and should be given it at all times.
What are the main types of bullying? Everyday millions of children wake up afraid to go to school because of bullying. Bullying is an aggressive behavior from one person to another weaker person and it’s also when someone is being hurt by either words or actions it may occur directly or indirectly. It is widely founded in schools. It creates long term effects to the person who is being bullied and to the bully himself.
I envied those who could speak better than me. I used to envy anybody who could easily make new friends. I was jealous of those who had no worries as they were quite good enough in every walk of their lives. I was depressed from a young age because I lacked so many skills in me which, if had been present, could have made me the best in life. Anyway, I kept on hating myself and the world moved on.
I constantly felt alone in my thoughts and the way it reflected on my behavior. I kept to myself way more than kids my age usually did. I had to learn to grow up fast due to my setting I grew up in. It didn’t really help my emotions that I was incredibly shy and absolutely despised putting myself out for people to notice. “Maybe you wouldn’t feel all sad and alone if you tried to make new friends at school,” mumbled my Mom.
As the months went by, things turned out to be great! I had the opportunity to serve in The Church and in my community but as the year came to an end, my year mark as a member of The Lord 's Church drew closer. I was getting worried because I was always told by my leaders that I should think of the opportunity that I had to serve a mission. It wasn 't something that I ever thought of doing because I always felt like I wouldn 't be able to stay away from my family for so long, worrying about who would take care of them, or whether something would happen to them while I was away, or if I would ever see them again.
I have been a member of the Tung Chung Praise Ministry from 2008 to 2015 as a choir member, and have volunteered a number of hours to attend and host worship events such as the Feast Hong Kong for three years. I am currently a Sunday School Teacher in Our Lady of Visitation Chapel, Tung Chung, where I teach the Bridging Class (ages 5 -12) about Catholicism and Church Etiquette. Personally, to be an educator does not mean to discipline, it means to be the influence, to encourage curiosity and instil knowledge that would gradually make pupils wise. Being brought up in this community as well as being the eldest sibling in my family, I was brought up to be selfless, patient and understanding. With them as my extended family, I was encouraged to follow
