Tuesday: Eucharist– one body and Bread broken, we are called to be broken and shared in the world

Wednesday:Confirmation– anointed, gifted with the power of the Holy Spirit and sent out into the world to bring about the Kingdom

Thursday: Reconciliation– metanoia and its deeper meaning in the life of the community, looking at what it means to be reconciled and to be reconcilers

Friday: The Sacrament of the sick: The need for healing in order to be sent out.  Aspects in our lives and community that needs to be healed.

Transmitting the Faith

Transmitting the faith means to create in every place and time the conditions for this personal encounter of individuals with Jesus Christ.  The faith –encounter with the person of Jesus Christ is a relationship with him, “remembering him” (in the Eucharist) and, through the grace of the Spirit, having in us the mind of Jesus Christ.  Pope Benedict XVl stated: “Being Christian is not the result of an ethical choice or a lofty idea, but the encounter with an event, a person, which gives life a new horizon and a decisive direction…………..

This personal encounter allows individuals to share in the Son’s relationship with his Father and to experience the power of the Spirit. The aim of transmitting the faith and the goal of evangelisation is to bring us “through him (Christ) in one Spirit to the Father” (Eph 2:18)


What is not believed or lived cannot be transmitted

The Gospel  can only be transmitted on the basis of “being” with Jesus and living with Jesus the experience of the Father, in the Spirit; and, in a corresponding way, of “feeling” compelled to proclaim and share what is lived as a good and something positive and beautiful.  If a living relationship with Christ and, therefore, his Father and the Holy Spirit, does not exist, we have not succeeded in “transmitting” the faith. The faith has not been transmitted unless the Person and the relationship at the centre of the faith have been transmitted.  And we can’t successfully transmit the relationship at the centre of the faith unless we ourselves consciously participate in that relationship.
