Call to Greatness
Who would’ve thought that we’ve been on the road for a month already? I’ve been travelling with this team of amazingly holy people, who 2 months ago were total strangers. We had a team Costco visit a few weeks ago, and as I walked in, the man at the door asked if these 9 people behind me were with me. Without a second thought I said, “Yup, they’re my family.” That’s what we truly are now. We’ve all become on big family on an adventure driving across the country, spreading the Word of God.
So far it’s been full of good laughs, fun host homes, intense spiritual growth, and life-changing experiences.
Coming down from the Mountain
Often, it is so easy to just stay in the mountain and not want to come down. During NET training it was like we were on the mountain at the Transfiguration. In the gospel of Mark, it tells us how Jesus brought Peter, James and John on a journey to a high mountain to be apart by themselves. Than before their eyes Jesus was transfigured!! He was in His full glory, in dazzling white like no beauty on Earth could ever amount to.
In the Footsteps of Saints
“To be saints is not a privilege for the few, but a vocation for everyone.” - Pope Francis
In light of All Saints Day being this month, I thought I would talk a bit about saints. All Saints Day is a day of celebration for those who have attained heaven, those named and recognised by the church and all the unnamed saints as well. How great is it that all the unnamed saints get a day to celebrate them! Not that the named saints aren’t pretty cool... Each team on NET is allocated two patron saints and our two saints as the Swift Current team are St Rita and St Francis Xavier.
