Week 2 – Discovering Change (Young Adults)

Community Reflection “Jesus took Peter, James, and John and led them up a high mountain apart by themselves. And he was transfigured before them, and his clothes became dazzling white…” – Mark 9:2-3a The Transfiguration has always been a strange and unrelatable event for me. It’s hard for my mind to comprehend what is happening and relate to the dazzling white, tent proposal, and talking clouds.

Community Reflection “The Spirit drove Jesus out into the desert, and he remained in the desert for forty days, tempted by Satan…” – Mark 1:12-15 This spartan passage from the Gospel of Mark provides the reader with hardly any details of Jesus’ temptation in the desert.

Community Reflection Can you believe Lent is already upon us? The post-Christmas season of Ordinary Time this year has flown by and hasn’t necessarily felt very ordinary. 🤣 With everything we’ve endured individually and collectively…with our shared suffering, sacrifice, and deprivation…it may seem as if our Lenten journey began last year and continues today.

February 2021 Discipleship Letter

February 2021 Hello Fellow Disciples, St. Joseph is the Patron of the Universal Church.

We must deepen our own faith in order to better share it with …
