A Blessed New Year to all. A brother of mine (a Secular Franciscan) wrote a short piece on the mission of a Disciple of Christ. Here it is.
The Creed and Mission of a Disciple
As a disciple of my Lord and Savior,
I profess that
Through Jesus Christ
we have been given the perfect gift,
the Incarnation of the Love of God.
Through His birth,
we have been given the hope of redemption in Him.
Through His death,
we have been given His infinite compassion and mercy.
Through His resurrection,
we have been given the fulfillment of the promises of our faith in Him.
And through His Holy Spirit,
we have been given the grace
to become witnesses of His Love.
to be instruments of His Will,
to be servants in leading others to Him,
that we may be all united
in the peaceful bliss of eternal life.
By this creed,
I live and sanctify my daily life.
For this mission,
I commit and consecrate my whole self.
