Week #12 - Seven Deadly Sins - Seven Lively Virtues Join noted Professor of Theology and author, Fr. Robert Barron, in this revealing presentation as he sheds light on the Seven Deadly Sins those great spiritual blocks that inhibit our relationship with God and others - and the antidote to them, the Seven Lively Virtues! Fr. Barron uses Dante's DIVINE COMEDY to expose these sinful patterns in our lives and show how they are effectively counteracted by the cultivation of virtue through the development of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. This fascinating journey shows the path that God has designed to lead us to health, happiness and holiness.

Patience
Patience is a virtue that brings with it many rewards. One of the most rewarding benefits advanced by this virtue is found in the habit of delayed gratification. We live in a culture that is constantly shouting, You deserve it, and, you can have it right now! The result is many people fall prey to instant gratification. Instant gratification places a serious roadblock on our path to being the best disciples and stewards we can be. This is where patience can reward us. One of the hallmarks of stewardship is generosity. However, it is difficult to be generous if we too frequently give in to instant gratification. Advertisers would have us believe that we can spend our way to happiness. The truth is that sharing first and spending second is the path to sustained happiness and greater generosity. When it comes to developing patience with our spending habits, the best course of action is to preface every spending decision with the question, Do I need this or do I simply want it? This question is at the heart of good financial stewardship. The modern media feeds our subconscious minds with hundreds of images every day, all intended to blur the difference between what we legitimately need and what we simply want. If we are not careful these images can have a powerful influence on our attitudes. Whoever controls the images controls the culture (Bishop Robert Morneau).

MEET A SEMINARIAN PAUL SOLOMON


Paul Solomon first felt the call to the priesthood, when he was in seventh grade, serving Mass at SS Peter and Paul in Naperville. As he looked at the stained glass window of Christ the King, he felt a movement in his heart, and a voice speaking to him softly, Come, follow me and he was convinced that he was called to the priesthood, High school brought a big transition and sports became a priority. Paul was spending most of his time in football and baseball and living a typical high school life style. During his junior year, however, he realized that something was missing in his life and participating in Adoration and Reconciliation that was available afterwards allowed him to establish his prayer life. In senior year he made a visit to the College of St Thomas and Sr. John Vianney Seminary. Praying after Mass there, he heard the same voice he had heard seven years before, Come, follow me and felt sure that he was in the right place. Paul is now in his 3nd year of Theology at Pontifical North American College in Rome. Paul feels that he has been blessed by many great experiences and opportunities, and to be so close to Pope Emeritus Benedict as well as Pope Francis, to walk the streets that great saints and martyrs once walked and to be able to pray and study with students from all over the world.

Hospitality

A STEWARDSHIP MOMENT
In todays Gospel Jesus continues to teach his followers how to embrace his attitude toward the Law, and its fulfillment. Among these familiar teachings, Jesus enjoins his followers to be generous givers without regard to whether they will receive equally back from those to whom they are being generous. He directs them not to refuse either the person who begs or the person who wants to borrow from them. They are not to react in these situations by trying to protect themselves and make sure that they will be treated fairly. Jesus wants his listeners to have an attitude toward another person that transcends that other persons character, motives or behavior. In this way, he maintains, they must be perfect, as their heavenly Father is perfect. How might we cultivate such an attitude toward giving?

Join us for Hospitality the weekend of March 1st and 2nd after all the Masses hosted by The Prayer Group in the PLC.
