On this 6th day of Christmas, my gift to each of you within the Say Yes to Holiness Community is an awareness and access to resources from another phenomenal apostolate–Real Catholic.
Now, you might be wondering, why am I pointing you in the direction of other apostolates? Don’t I want you to only be a part of the Say Yes Community?
Yes and no.
Yes, I DO want you to be a part of the Say Yes to Holiness Community. It is one of my greatest joys and privileges to be able to help inspire, encourage and accompany you on the journey towards holiness, and I pray every day that what I share and provide for you helps you take one more step closer to being the saint God created you to be, and to embrace the life He created you for–a life of purpose, peace and abundance.
So, yes, I want to share that journey with you.
But it is no also. Because I fully realize that I am only one part of the beautifully talented and gifted Body of Christ. What others have to offer, and other apostolates, are worthwhile in that TOGETHER we become holier, and TOGETHER we draw closer to God and become more like Jesus.
Our God is a God of ABUNDANCE, and that is another reason why I share resources and point people towards other apostolates. Because it’s only by being in union with, in, and through Christ that we have any chance of getting to our Heavenly homeland, and as far as I am concerned, my #1 goal is to see you at the Heavenly banquet table. If it’s because of work that I do, great, but if it’s because someone else spoke the words of life you needed in a particular moment to be able to remain faithful to the journey, then all the better. What is important is that we GET THERE.
And that’s why, part of these 12 Days of Christmas, I am going to be sharing what I have to offer, but also point you towards some of the best of what others have to offer too.
The more the merrier, eh?
So, here are your 6 gifts for today–1 from me, and 5 from Chris at Real Catholic. Enjoy!
The 30 Day Unhackable Catholics Book Club will be discussing the book, Unhackable, by Kary Oberbrunner.
The book itself is broken down into 30 days, so each morning, the group will gather briefly to watch a video from the author Kary Oberbrunner and to share with one another insights from the prior day’s challenge (given at the end of each day/chapter in the book).
Throughout the day, Unhackable Catholic Book Club members are encouraged to post and continue the conversation by sharing about what steps they are taking to become Unhackable in work and life.
(And here is a Link to purchase Unhackable book on Amazon so you are ready to participate in the Book Club on January 7th!)
I will keep praying that these gifts will help you grow closer to God and become more like Jesus throughout this wondrous Christmas season, and may your day be merry and bright!
