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.
All Saints Catholic School’s mission statement states “The Mission of All Saints Catholic School is to provide an atmosphere rich in the Catholic faith where each child is challenged to grow in a safe environment. Through word and example the
“Behold your mother!” By these words, I recognize that the Blessed Mother has an active role to play in my faith and spiritual life. I also realize that this is how the LORD Jesus wished to bring His Sacrifice to completion. He entrusted His mother to His beloved disciple, and in the beloved disciple to all mankind. She thus became our Mother in the work of salvation. This dedication further illustrates the great love with which the LORD Jesus offered His life for all
The last key value of being caring that I strive to have is to be kind. Something I find important is the value of being kind to all around you even if you do not agree with what they may be saying. This has been a struggle for me as I do not agree with some of the views others around me share, but I find the
They have never turned their back on me and they have always done what is right for me even if I don’t agree with it at the time. They both have taught me very important life lessons but there is two that stick out to me the most. One is respect. They told me from a very young age you give everyone a fair chance and you never assume they are going to be a bad person until you get to know them. They told me with respect you also have to be forgiving.
There were times when my parents spoiled me but I was always taught to be thankful of the things that I had and to not be so selfish. Having two other siblings helped me prevent the want of being selfish. I do not know what I would do without my family. My family is very inspiring because they show me all aspects on how I should live my life through their experiences like education, parenting, and work ethic. My family’s past experiences also teach me how to live my life the best way possible.
Throughout my many years of Catholic education, I have met so many incredible people, all with varying levels of faith. It is in these people that I realized that my Catholic education is not some force in my life that limits my views to what is strictly and literally outlined in scripture and directs my fellow peers and I to all practice and believe in the same way. Rather, it is a guiding force that shows me the path of justice and righteousness and provides me with the necessary tools to blaze my own trail from wherever my faith leads me at a given time, back to this ultimate path. My catholic education teaches me about my faith and gives me all of the necessary tools to understand it, but grants me the freedom to do with these tools what I
As the article reads, “We need a religion that will show us that although we are only transient beings, and although we will never know a setup that differs in any radical way from the present one, it is nevertheless possible for us to commit ourselves to life so completely that we do experience eternal joy in life and can say that it has all been worthwhile.” (page 41) This means that we can use the common teaching of many religions that focus on treating others with kindness and respect to make the world a better place for those that are currently living in it, as well as for those that will live in it for years to come. If we accept that death will come, we would likely have a different outlook on how we live our
You must be dedicated and determined to help those who truly are sufficient and understand that you are the reason they do feel better or why they will. When going into any situation whether it’s at work or in your personal life always make sure that you have and understanding to their beliefs and lifestyle and have compassion for them because a lot of people don’t have families to be there in their time of need or someone to just come hold their hand and say you will be okay. I honestly love the fact that I can leave work every day knowing I did something to make another personal feel much better about themselves then they did
