This weekend we were joined 4 Religious Sisters from 2 different communities and 39 priests. While all of us are called to be saints through the universal call to holiness, Christ has set some apart for priesthood and religious life.
What is the purpose of this weekend conference? It’s simple: individual hearts and their journey with Christ. Imperfectly, with mistakes along the way, this weekend is about joining the journey of hearts being pursued by Christ.
The Closing Prayer at Mass says, “… to lead us from former ways to newness of life.” This weekend, a time of restoration, is a beginning point of Jesus leading us to be better than we were before we came. Somewhere along the way, God touched your heart this weekend. Maybe it was during Mass, Adoration, Reconciliation, or in the words of a talk. What He has in store for you next a mystery. The graces from this weekend will bear fruit in the days and years to come. There is a whole journey of life and grace ahead. The key to this weekend is what you do next.
Clare is a longtime Youth Minister at Mary Mother of the Church in St. Louis. She has attended a Steubenville conference every year since 1999! She took some time to answer some of our questions, so take a look at what she shared!
Jesus, Your scars tell our story. Your victory is our victory. Your life is our abundance of life.
Jesus tells us that in His name we have authority over the brokenness and lies of our lives, so we reject them and announce the truth of Jesus Christ. Proclaim them. Believe them. Say them again and again.
