Living as Missionary Disciples

The Holy Spirit

Living as missionary disciples is a way of being Church. 

The Holy Spirit, the animator and sanctifier of the Church, her divine breath, the wind in her sails, the principle of her unity, the inner source of her light and strength, her support and consoler, her source of charisms and songs, her peace and her joy, her pledge and prelude to blessed and eternal life.

With the help of the Holy Spirit evangelizers can transform the world. (Living As Missionary Disciples pgs. 18-19)

Living as Missionary Disciples

In addition Terrie Baldwin, Director of the Office of Evangelization shares some ideas to ponder on the newest document from the USCCB Committee on Catechesis and Evangelization, Living as Missionary Disciples.  Living as a missionary disciple comes from one’s own personal way of living, the privilege we hold as baptized members of the church and it looks at how we share this spirit in each of our ministries.
