Spiritual Motherhood

SpiritualMotherLogo4x41Spiritual Motherhood is a supernatural way for women to care for souls, especially priests.  It is a type of maternity that nurtures Divine Life in others by doing Gods Will centered on the Holy Eucharist, faithful to the Magisterium of the Catholic Church and it focuses on Authentic Marian Femininity and Maternity.

“If the desired renewal of the Church depends for the most part on its priests, then it will also depend to a larger degree on the families and in particular women and mothers” (Pope St. John Paul II, May 4, 1987).

Who can become a Spiritual Mother?

Stephen Ministry Update

Stephen Ministry

When do we need God’s love most?  Of course, we need that love every second of our lives.  But at times, God’s love is especially precious to us, times when:

·We lose a loved one;

·Life becomes so confusing that we do not know where to turn; or

·Life just becomes meaningless and depression sets in.

At times like these, it is very important to have someone who cares.  Our church has trained parishioners to serve as Stephen Ministers, who offer a ministry of Christian Caring.  If you are interested in the care of a Stephen Minister or are interested in serving as a Stephen Minister, contact Desiree Alford at 615-568-3378.  We are seeking applicants to join this ministry now!

Now that this season’s elect and candidates enjoy full membership in the Church through the sacraments of initiation at the Easter Vigil, the RCIA has entered the period known as mystagogy, which comes from a Greek work meaning “leading/teaching in the mysteries”. 

For the next seven months RCIA participants will experience more fully the mysteries of our faith through the Gospel message and through the experience of the sacraments they have just begun to receive.  It is by looking back on Jesus’ passion, death, and resurrection just experienced during the Triduum and Easter, and through the sacraments of initiation, that one can begin to look forward with a proper perspective for Christian living – living the particular way of life of a disciple of Christ. 

This period of mystagogy has deep roots in the early history of the Church.  There are even significant writings that exist today of post-baptismal lectures by St. Cyril of Jerusalem, traditionally thought to have been conducted at the site of Christ’s empty tomb.  How powerful would that have been?!

This is a time not just for our neophyte (“newly planted” in faith), our newly baptized, but for the community as a whole, to deepen in knowledge of the mysteries of God, the paschal mystery of Christ, and the sacraments.  During this Easter season leading up to the celebration of Pentecost, we, too, are given an opportunity for ongoing transformation through the Church’s liturgy.  The Mass readings during this time focus us all on the early Church and true discipleship; the prayers are focused on the neophyte, but direct all of us to our own baptism and confirmation and the promises made therein.

As we seek to live well this blessed time in our Church, please continue to pray for those now in full communion, their godparent and sponsors, the RCIA team, and our St. Joseph family as we all continue this shared journey of faith into discipleship and union with God!
