Forming Apostles Online
If the Verbum Dei Missionary Family is a ship, many understand that the cutting edge is to form apostles. With this awareness we have tried to be active in pursuing our School of apostles, even in the time of lockdown. This weekend, in our Zoom SOA (Saturday 9am-11am), Marichelle, a Verbum Dei apostle, shared to us the talk of “To Be Christ.”
The core of tis truth of faith is that we are called to be Christ in the world of today. The secret is the loving dialog with Jesus which TRANSFORMS US.
She emphasized that in the middle of a challenging moment in her life, she was doing an outreach to children and realized that to be like Christ is the MAXIMUM FULFILLMENT. She also reminded us of the importance of PERSEVERANCE and to “fix our eyes on Jesus” (Hebrews 12:2). Finally, she underlined that we can be good shepherds and help form Jesus in others.
The dynamism of the School of Apostles is vital as our mission. Our Verbum Dei founder, Jaime Bonet, would often state “Jesus does not need more adorers or admirers only, he needs imitators.”
There is hope for us all that God will transform and change us from caterpillars to beautiful butterflies!
