Booklet by Michael Fonseca
A 12-week introductory program that helps you to discover Jesus as your personal savior and Lord, while bringing you into a deeper personal relationship with the Blessed Trinity.
Instruct Me in Your Ways, Lord, is a follow-up to Lead me into the Deep, Lord. It consists of a guidebook of 7 Revelations that will be done over 14 weeks. In this program, we are attempting to become familiar with the Pentateuch or the first five books of the Old Testament, so that our understanding of Jesus and the New Testament will be enriched. The Pentateuch reveals the beginning stages of God’s Plan of Salvation unfolding amongst His people and being brought to a glorious climax through Jesus’ death on the cross, leading to His resurrection.
Shepherd me into your Kingdom, Lord continues the journey you began in Lead me into the Deep, Lord, and beckons you into deeper waters. God’s Trinitarian love for us. We follow the same format as Lead me into the Deep, Lord. We attempt to help you continue to develop a consistent practice of daily prayer through a trusting face-to-face encounter with our Lord. You will use all that you learned about the practice of prayer in Lead me into the Deep, Lord, like different Methods of Prayer, the Discernment of Spirits, and the Examination of Conscience. Under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you will continue to have the opportunity to develop your own internal authority about your life of covenant union with God.
Make Us Your Holy Family, Lord is written specifically for Catholic Families. The intent is to give them a deep appreciation of their marital covenant and to help them raise their families within their covenant union with God and with each other. We try to offer them the spiritual help and encouragement they would need to build their domestic church in their family.
Pour Out Your Spirit Upon Us, Lord continues the journey you began with Lead Me into the Deep, Lord. Over 14 weeks, you will be reflecting and praying on The Acts of the Apostles. Acts gives us a riveting account of the spread of the Church, Jesus' Covenant family, under the power and guidance of the Holy Spirit. Luke wants to give readers a theological understanding of the spread of the church that unfolded after the Ascension of the Jesus, and the Outpouring of the Holy Spirit. Just like them, we too have been sent to bring Jesus Christ to the ends of the earth!
Pray with the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola.
Journey with seven New Testament saints to appreciate their obedience to God's will, resulting in the spread of God's kingdom and their transformation.
Come to appreciate the importance of the Church in God's Plan of Salvation. Jesus established an unbreakable bond between Himself and His covenant family. Through the sacraments, God's life and love is celebrated in the midst of His covenant family, because Jesus is Emmanuel. Through Jesus, the Blessed Trinity dwells in our midst.
