Transcript of Catholic Women Fully Alive
May at least the first hour of your work and pay be dedicated to charity and service of the least of God’s Kingdom. The First Hour Scriptures
But we are created in Christ for good works, to glorify God - Eph 2:10; Mt 5:16
Thus we are to be fruitful in every good work - Col 1:10
We are not to grow weary in doing good - 1Cor 15:58; Gal 6:9-10
What will you do for God for all the good God has done for you? Psalm 116
To those to whom much has been given, much will be expected - Lk 12:48
“Charity and justice are actually two sides of the same coin or like the right and left hand of the body of Christ, the church. When we do acts of charity, we ought to be thinking about how we can be part of the solution on a systemic level so that people are not devastated by unjust actions of others. At the same time, acts of justice which are not rooted in charity can easily become politicized and lose the connection to the Gospel mandate of charity.” Strength Training - Generosity Pick an object that speaks to you.
Prepare to share why with the group. Stretch Break Work versus leisure
Leisure as re-creation, growth, formation, worship
The means by which we grow spiritually - 1Pet 2:2
It was by the Word of God that Jesus resisted the devil - Mt 4:4,7,10
It is by God's Word in our hearts that we can resist sin - Ps 119:11
“Each of us ought to see our own faith formation as a lifelong journey. The Lord invites us to a deeper knowledge of him. With each passing year, we are to improve our relationship with him, with the church, and to the world at large through His grace…“Let us continue to foster adult faith formation study groups in our parishes centered around Bible study, prayer groups and renewal groups so as to further solidify this wonderful education and formation goal which has been such a large part of this diocese’s history.” Restrooms, Coffee, Water, Stretching Stretch Break Scriptures
“Our Christian communities must become genuine ‘schools’ of prayer, where the meeting with Christ is
expressed not just in imploring help but also in thanksgiving, praise, adoration, contemplation, listening
and ardent devotion, until the heart truly ‘falls in love.’ …It would be wrong to think that ordinary Christians
can be content with a shallow prayer that is unable to fill their whole life.” Cardio – Personal Prayer Life Scriptures
It is a type of spiritual sacrifice that we offer to God - Heb 13:15
A way to respond to the goodness of God - James 5:13
Our assembling is designed to stir one another to love and good works - Heb 10:24-25
“The Sunday Eucharist (Mass) is the highlight of the church’s expression of faith and community. We need to have a greater sense of the importance of the day of the Lord, not just to remember and keep it holy, but also to begin to love the day of the Lord. Sunday ought to be the highlight of our week, the first day of the week, not the last day of the weekend. We give to God his proper due by giving him the first hours of the first day of the week each Sunday.”
Spiritual health is NOT low carb! Nutrition and Hydration – The Mass Share with your fitness partner:

What excites you most about being Catholic? Stretch Break
May the first impression you give be as a disciple, a follower, of Christ. The First Hour Scriptures
Jesus commissioned us to spread the message and do the work of the Gospel. - Mt 28:16-20
People know God by what they hear and what they are taught. We are to share our faith and the word of Jesus in the Gospel. Romans 10: 13-14, 17
“We are called to go forth into the world and to introduce others to our very best friend, Jesus Christ and to his body the church. We announce this good news not only to those who may never have heard of Jesus Christ or never had a relationship to the Catholic Church, we also announce this good news in what is called today the “new evangelization.” Pope John Paul II encouraged the entire church “not to re-evangelize but to a “‘New Evangelization,’ new in its ardor, methods and expression.”” Stretching - Evangelization Why Spiritual Athletes?
Bp.’s Pastoral: “What if we were as devoted and excited about our faith and activity in our church as we are about the Green Bay Packers? Wow!”
