“Mobilizing the faithful in a grace filled consecration to promote the love of God and neighbor from the moment of conception to natural death.”
Members participate in four overarching spiritual disciplines to assist in the nurture of their consecration to God and service to humanity and in particular the least. The four spiritual disciplines are: prayer, study, community and apostolic witness. We will consider the first of the four disciplines, prayer.
“Prayer is to the Christian what breathing is to all humanity.” Our union with the Divine, His children and mission through intimate prayer cannot be overvalued. Prayer is the heartbeat and breath of all we do with and for Him. While there is a broad range of prayer and unique interaction of every soul with the Lord, each member of the apostolate is united daily in at least three particular forms of prayer:
Other forms of prayer are engaged in or welcomed. Some form of morning and evening prayer is required, along with a minimum of weekly participation in Mass. Devotions such as Eucharistic Adoration, Chaplet of Divine Mercy and Contemplative Prayer are encouraged. Again, “ Prayer is to the Christian what breathing is to all humanity.” Pray!If you have a sense like those participating in the Apostolate, that now is the time for God’s people to unite in a deeper consecration to God and neighbor, especially “the least.” Contact us now and let us discern together your participation in the lay associates of the Missionaries of the Gospel of Life.
