Is God Calling You?

Is God calling you to be a media apostle?

 

The Society of St Paul is a Religious Congregation for men dedicated to the apostolate of the mass media. Founded in 1914 at Alba, Italy, by Blessed James Alberione, the Congregation is now present in 32 countries across the globe.

The members of the Society of St Paul – Priests and Brothers – are engaged in the work of evangelization through the powerful means of communication such as the press, cinema, radio, television and other audio-visual and digital media. Creatively faithful to the charism of their saintly Founder who was a “man who saw tomorrow”, and animated by the spirit of their Patron, Paul the Apostle – the greatest missionary ever, the members dare to dream of employing at the service of the gospel whatever new means of communication technological advances may make available in the future.

Jesus, My Heaven: Day 9

Jesus My Heaven
Day 9

Heaven is the possession of God, and God will be possessed by those who have loved him upon the earth and have been faithful in serving him.

Blessed James Alberione

Wonder:
How can I keep my gaze fixed more on Jesus?

Deepen:
From the Scriptures:
A new heaven and a new earth.

Revelation 21:1-5

Decide:
Today I will ask for the grace of final perseverance and the gift of heaven.

Father in heaven,
may we continue to strain forward,
with our gaze fixed on Jesus, your Son,
who leads us in our faith and
brings it to perfection
through the Holy Spirit.
Help us to persevere,
so that this work of holiness
begun in us
may be finished when
the day of Christ Jesus comes.
Amen.
