Strengthen the spiritual life of the parish
Living City Magazine of the Focolare announces the release of Called to be community — A guide to living a spirituality of communion as a new resource for those involved in adult catechesis to deepen the Gospel life of their parishes and local communities.
The 88-page manual is rich in content and gives guidelines on how to implement the Gospel in daily life, thus forming the kind of “living parish communities” that were envisioned by the Second Vatican Council. It offers participants the means to deepen their faith and the opportunity to put the Gospel into practice — together!
Called to be community has been specifically prepared for small groups in parishes and other pastoral environments or home places where Christians can be of “one heart and one mind” in living out a spirituality of communion — a spirituality that belongs to the whole Church. In the words of Pope John Paul II: “We need to promote a spirituality of communion, making it the guiding principle of education wherever individuals and Christians are formed.”
This guide will lead one to discover God who is love, and ways to respond to his love through love of one’s neighbor. It outlines the essential points of a spirituality of communion, and offers practical exercises to make them an integral part of life.
Called to be community can be a great tool for those responsible for adult catechesis in the parish and even for those who are not yet part of parish life. Its simplicity and accessibility to everyone makes this program an invaluable resource to make the parish a school of communion and contribute to the fulfillment of Jesus utmost desire, “May they all be one, as you, Father, are in me and I in you” (Jn 17:21).
