THEOLOGY OF THE BODY CLASS
6:15 PM to 8:30 PM
God stamped into every human heart the desire for spousal union and life-giving love. These longings are most often fulfilled through the sacrament of matrimony. However, they are also fulfilled through a life offered to God in consecrated celibacy.
Al men are called to be husbands and fathers in some way, and all women are called in some way to be wives and mothers. These desires do not exclude a religious calling. These desires are placed within us for a reason. There is a reason that a priest is called “Father.” There is a reason St. Teresa of Calcutta was called “Mother” Teresa. Consecrated religious beget (generate) many spiritual children by their union with Christ and the Church. So the real question is: How is God calling each of us to live out the desire to be a husband and father or a wife and mother?

The whole goal of St. Mark Youth Ministry is to lead teens and their families to a life-long, personal relationship with a real person – Jesus Christ.  Every task of our ministry, every lesson, event, retreat, service and all of our activities and conversations point to and flow through the Eucharist the source and summit of our faith, and in our model Blessed Mother Mary.


This is what we are about.

We plant seeds one day that will grow.

We water seeds already planted knowing that they hold future promise.

We lay foundations that will need further development.

We provide yeast that produces effects far beyond our capabilities.

 

We cannot do everything, and there is a sense of liberation in realizing that. 

This enables us to do something, and do it very, very well. 

It may be incomplete, but it is a beginning, a step along the way, an opportunity for the Lord’s grace to enter and do the rest. 

We may never see the end results, but that is the difference between the Master Builders and the worker.

We are workers not Master Builders…ministers, not Messiahs. 

We are prophets of a future that is not our own.

Announcements
In thanksgiving for Fr. Kevin Ryan

This Thanksgiving, I am thankful for you, Father Kevin:
For giving your life for our good, for being our Good Shepherd and Father.
For enriching our lives, strengthening our faith and making God’s invisible ways visible through the Sacraments.
For bringing us into God’s family through Baptism,
For taking our sins to Christ that we may finally forgive ourselves,
For transforming the bread/wine that we may become one in Christ
For bringing God’s healing and mercy for us in most need of His loving touch,
For joining us in marriage that we may become a living example of Christ and His Church,
For calling down the Holy Spirit upon each of us that we may live according to God’s will and purpose for us.
For multiplying our gifts by providing ministries that we may serve others,
For sharing God’s word, His truths, His purposes, His ways and His unending love.


Thank you Lord for Monsignor Ryan for all the ways You bless, lead and love us through him! Amen
