The Lord himself gives the Church her mission statement.
Jesus sent the seventy-two disciples to preach his coming into the world.
Trying to live minimally has taught me what it is like to pursue mission with an undivided heart.
Discipleship means choosing Jesus above everything else, even the good things.
Jesus is the center of our lives and the savior of the world. Following him means asking what he wants, rather than what we want.
In times of crisis, the only solution that will work is to turn back to God and make him the center of our lives.
When I had to leave everything behind for the priesthood, the Annual Catholic Appeal allowed me to go to seminary for free, and the money spent on my education was money well spent.
The priest crisis is merely a symptom of a greater crisis in discipleship.
