Being Poor in Spirit

Being Poor in Spirit

March 26, 2011

Sadness, although can sometimes be helped with professional help, it doesn’t always require it and is a normal reaction to the losses we experience. When we recognize sadness as a natural occurrence that comes to us all from time to time, we are better able to help ourselves and others through the challenge. Jesus experienced sadness throughout His life on earth. We can learn from His example, as well as look to Him for support during our sad times.

 

 

It’s never easy to leave things or people and move on to something new and unknown.  But whether we recognize it or not, we grow and mature through times of transition in our lives.  And while we may want to hang on to life as it once was, we can’t let fear hold us back. Being able to transition smoothly is key to our recovery and can determine how quickly we can move on. With special guests from Active Catholic Teens Youth Group from the Church of St. Ann in Lawrenceville, New Jersey

 

To cope with suffering is part of what it means to be human.   At some point in our life,  we all face suffering or hardship; whether this be the death or serious illness of aloved one, or personal suffering due to physical, emotional or mental pain.  The question to answer is; what do we do with this suffering?  Can we offer it up to God?  What does this even mean?  Choosing how we approach our suffering is important.  How can our suffering help someone else?  How can we learn how to transform our suffering into holiness?

 

 

Many of us have experienced the loss of a friend or loved one. Whether the death be a result of a sudden and random accident, a prolonged sickness like cancer or something as devastating as suicide; it is an agonizing experience to go through. When someone dies young it makes it even more difficult. So how do we grieve and get through such an overwhelming loss? How can our faith and prayer give us hope to go on? This episode also features a music video by Realfaith TV cast members Alina and Justin Zimmerman. Justin wrote the song to help him grieve the sudden death of a close friend.

 

 

As baptized Catholics, we are called to be missionaries and tell the world about Christ and His saving grace. What does this mean, and how do we answer this call to be missionaries? What does it take to be a missionary in today’s world? Do we have to travel to faraway lands to do missionary work, or is this something we can do in our own community?
