“Mobilizing the faithful in a grace filled consecration to promote the love of God and neighbor from the moment of conception to natural death.”

Study, is the second of the four (prayer, study, community and apostolic witness) spiritual disciplines engaged in, to nurture each member’s consecration to the Lord and humanity.

Today, more than ever, sound information (even sacred information) is readily available to equip God’s people for personal transformation and mission to the world. Many are simply not making the time to ponder, ingest, or study, the messages that can yield life. Study must be a discipline we value and work at, for our own sake and that of others. We would do well to heed the admonition of St. Paul and Sacred Scripture: “Be eager to present yourself as acceptable to God, a workman who causes no disgrace, imparting the word of truth without deviation (2 Timothy 2:15).”

Members are encouraged to participate (privately and corporately) in ongoing study and learning. Among the sources and opportunities presented by the Apostolate for study:

  • The Sacred Scriptures
  • The Catechism of the Catholic Church
  • Papal Encyclicals (especially Evangelium Vitae) and other Church Documents
  • The Lives and Teachings of the Saints and Fathers of the Church
  • The Divine Office or Abbreviated Forms of The Office (ex. The Magnificat Periodical)
  • Spiritual Devotions
  • Pro-life Materials and Resources, starting with
  • Local and National Pro-life and Pro-family Websites
  • Legal, Political, Social and Demographic Issues, related to life and family

As we freely give ourselves to the grace-filled discipline of study, we will experience the renewal and transformation of our minds and be better equipped to work for the establishment of His kingdom on earth as it is in heaven. May you know the blessedness and fruitfulness of study.

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 as a lay associate in the Missionaries of the Gospel of Life. Contact
