Nourishment for the Spiritual Pilgrimage

Daily Devotions for Christian Disciples

"In the morning, while it was still very dark, he got up and went out to a deserted place, and there he prayed" (Mark 1:35). Jesus taught by his words and actions. He went by himself to pray when he was tired, when faced with upcoming trying events, or when he just wanted to be alone in the presence of his Lord. He gave us guidance about what to pray, how to pray, and why to pray, and was very familiar with the Hebrew Scriptures. Thus, if we want to become Jesus' disciple we should follow his model and invest time and emotional energy into prayer, Bible study, and reflection. <>Nourishment For The Spiritual Pilgrimage provides an aid for those who want to participate in the spiritual pilgrimage of becoming a lifelong disciple of Jesus Christ. It offers insight and support for those who daily want to turn their hearts, souls, and minds to God's will in their lives, as they strive to help in bringing about God's kingdom in this present time. There are countless other devotionals, but hopefully this can offer something that many of the others may not, a specific focus on the concept of discipleship.

Freut euch und jubelt

Apostolisches Schreiben "Gaudete et exsultate" über den Ruf zur Heiligkeit in der Welt von heute

Author: Franziskus (Papst),

Publisher: Verlag Herder GmbH

ISBN: 3451814765

Category: Religion

Page: 128

View: 350

Franziskus fordert gerne einmal "Gesichter von freudigen Menschen", der Papst hält Freude für ein zentrales Element im Leben. Das hat er in seinen Werken, Ansprachen und Predigten immer wieder klargemacht. In seinem Lehrschreiben "Freut euch und jubelt" formuliert er neue Gedanken dazu und verbindet sie auf originelle Weise mit dem Begriff der "Heiligkeit". Heiligkeit als etwas, zu dem jeder von uns berufen ist, zu einem erfüllten und gelingenden Leben. Franziskus spricht über unseren konkreten Alltag, über die Herausforderungen und Sorgen, aber eben auch eine Freude, die das Leben durchzieht und trägt. Die Gedanken des Papstes sind ein kostbarer Schlüssel zum Evangelium, das als Botschaft nicht nur froh, sondern auch Freude macht, und das Franziskus uns so neu aufschließt. Sein persönliches Lob der "Mittelschicht der Heiligkeit", eine päpstliche Ode an die Freude und ein inspirierendes Werk für alle - Christen und Nichtchristen.
