Today, our message is from Fr. Simeon
Gallagher, OFMCap and his thoughts for
SP Faith Formation Grades K-4
us on our Parish Mission this week:
“Spirituality For Relationships”
SP Parish Mission “Breaking Relationships”
Fr. Simeon, welcome to St. Paul’s in Rome
and St. Joseph’s in Lee Center !
Thursday: November 6th:
“Upon reflection we realize that the core experience of
all life is expressed in relationships. This defines the
inner life of the Trinity itself. It is relationships that
grow and mature us in our life journey; nothing escapes
this inescapable reality. It is within relationships that
we experience the greatest joys of life and also the
most bitter disappointments. In the four presentations
of this Parish Mission fundamental aspects of spiritual
development are reflected through the lens of relationships: Faith, Prayer, Conversion, and Community.
All four are intricately linked one to the other.
The end result of this Parish Mission is a ‘spirituality’
that will enable us to recognize God in each other”.
