Mary Has Chosen the Better Part...

 

You are not a bad person, nor have you done anything so wrong that God has distanced Godself from you.  You are still working hard with the day-to-day duties of a parent, spouse, or child.  However, amidst the chaos of daily life, what are your top priorities?  What are you gaining and what are you losing in your daily choices?  A day of prayer can be not only useful, but even essential, to help you look back and allow God to direct you to what is better now and for eternal life.

Aging and Finding God

 

As we advance in years, we are more and more aware of the finiteness of our lives.  We will examine ways of putting to rest our fears and expanding our hopes in finding the fullness of life now and the expectation of infinite joy and happiness to come.

Being Real with God

 

It can be challenging to be fully myself with God. There can be barriers to revealing my thoughts, desires, fears, hopes, etc. to God in prayer. It is often when such barriers exist that it feels as if God is not there for me, that God is not listening. We will explore these experiences, praying for the grace to be more real with God, and sharing and practicing ways to do so.

Joy

 

Joy is the experience of the Kingdom of God even while it is still coming in this life. Joy is a gift but we need to receive that gift in our own hearts.  We will explore the meaning of joy and look at ways to activate joy in our daily lives.

Đức Tin Thời @ (A-còng)

 

Ngày nay, không ai phủ nhận những sản phẩm trí tuệ nhân tạo (artificial intelligent - AI) như điện tử, điện toán và những ứng dụng internet như Facebook, Tweeter, Instragram, Youtube… đang đóng góp rất nhiều cho cuộc sống con người hiện nay.  Tuy nhiên, chưa bao giờ đời sống con người bị đặt vào những thách đố nghiêm trọng như hiện nay về: công ăn việc làm, tương quan xã hội, niềm tin tôn giáo, cùng những giá trị văn hóa và truyền thống gia đình.  Một Ngày Cho Tâm Hồn năm nay sẽ tập trung tìm hiểu, học hỏi và cầu nguyện về những ảnh hưởng cùng thách đố từ các trang mạng xã hội đối với đời sống đức tin và gia đình của mỗi người như thế nào.  Một Ngày Cho Tâm Hồn sẽ bằng tiếng Việt do Lm. Phạm Đức Hạnh, SJ hướng dẫn và mở ra cho mọi người có lòng ao ước, từ 20 tuổi trở lên.

Living in Fullness and Freedom

 

Our lives offer us a multitude of choices of how to be and to act in the world. After we set aside anything sinful, how do we choose? What might it look like to live in the fullness and the freedom of choosing according to God’s ways? We will reflect and pray with these questions.

Compassion

 

Compassion is the most common way in which we express love for one another.  We do not need to be compassionate with God (except in Christ) but we do need to be compassionate to each other.  Furthermore, God’s principle way of being present to us in difficult times is His compassion.

A Conversation at the Well

 

This encounter between Jesus and the woman who came to get water, led to a transformation. What encounters have we experienced that led to like transformation?

Exodus

 

Someone said, “Life is a journey.”  Exactly.  That journey is a continuation of exoduses.  In human life, everyone has to go through many exoduses biologically, physically, psychologically, socially and spiritually.  Have you ever looked back on these exoduses to see how they influence your present life and future?  This prayer day is an opportunity for you to look back on the journeys of the past and prepare for future ones.
