LIFE APPLICATION LITURGICAL COLOR CCC REFERENCES REFLECTION / ACTIVITY Jesus is on the road to Jerusalem where He will take up His cross and die. Those that follow Jesus must be willing to walk that same road with Him and follow Him all the way to Calvary. Jesus requires 3 things in order to be His disciple: ~To put God first above all family, including myself. ~To take up my cross(s); ~Renounce all material possessions that detract me from God. Practice discipleship everyday! Jesus tells me that discipleship is not always easy. The Kingdom of God requires preparation and a price. Following Jesus has a cost. Am I willing to pay it? It will not be easy, but Jesus has promised to be at my side.

List one new way of transportation available to you today that the disciples did not have and one new way of communication: [transportation] A reading according to the holy Gospel of Luke Luke 10:1-12, 17-20 “Revised Standard Version of the Bible, copyright 1952 (2nd edition, 1971) by the Division of Christian Education of the Glory to you, Lord. Council of the Churches of Christ in the United States of America. Used by permission. All rights reserved.” After this the Lord appointed seventy others, and sent them on ahead of him,National two by two, into every town and place where he himself was about to come. And he said to them, "The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; pray therefore the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest. Go your way; behold, I send you out as lambs in the midst of wolves. Carry no purse, no bag, no sandals; and salute no one on the road. Whatever house you enter, first say, `Peace be to this house!' And if a son of peace is there, your peace shall rest upon him; but if not, it shall return to you. And remain in the same house, eating and drinking what they provide, for the laborer deserves his wages; do not go from house to house. Whenever you enter a town and they receive you, eat what is set before you; heal the sick in it and say to them, `The kingdom of God has come near to you.' But whenever you enter a town and they do not receive you, go into its streets and say, `Even the dust of your town that clings to our feet, we wipe off against you; nevertheless know this, that the kingdom of God has come near.' I tell you, it s hall be more tolerable on that day for Sodom than for that town. The seventy returned with joy, saying, "Lord, even the demons are subject to us in your name!" And he said to them, "I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. Behold, I have given you authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy; and nothing shall hurt you. Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you; but rejoice that your names are written in heaven." The Gospel of the Lord. Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ. [communication] During your lifetime you will have many important missions, some small, some larger, and some more difficult than others. List one that you have already faced opposition to; one that you failed to do when you had the chance; and one that you were successful at: The Grail Prayer Lord Jesus, I give you my hands to do your work. I give you my feet to go your way. I give you my eyes to see as you do. I give you my tongue to speak your words. I give you my mind that you may think in me. I give you my spirit that you may pray in me. Above all, I give you my heart that you may love in me your Father and all humanity. I give you my whole self that you may grow in me, so that it is you, Lord Jesus, who live and work and pray in me. Amen. Created by Doreen Gerczak [email protected] Successful: Remember that, like the disciples, you are the hands and feet of Christ now and that everyday you will have new opportunities to lead others to Him. He really does need your help. Rejoice! † A reading John 15:1-8 CCC: 618,according 2544-45 to the holy Gospel of John Glory to you, Lord Jesus Christ "I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinedresser. Every branch of mine that bears no fruit, he takes away, and every branch that does bear fruit he prunes, that it may bear more Created by IDoreen [email protected] fruit. You are already made clean by the word which haveGerczak spoken to you. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in me, and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing. If a man does not abide in me, he is cast forth as a branch and withers; and the branches are gathered, thrown into the fire and burned. If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you will, and it shall be done for you. By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit, and so prove to be my disciples. The Gospel of the Lord. P Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ. The vine grower is The Father. Jesus is the True Vine; we are the branches. Having a relationship with Christ; keeping His commandments and loving one another is a way of bearing fruit. My life must be rooted in Christ. I make the decision to bear fruit or become dead wood. Pruning helps us to grow. Fruit can only grow and ripen on the branches. Without God I cannot achieve anything. I need to ask God for what I want. If I fail to bear fruit I will be separated from God. There are only two choices: life or death. Choose to be fruit! CCC: 2074, 2732 Jesus sends out 70 (other sources say 72) disciples to towns and places He will soon visit to prepare the way for Him by proclaiming the Good News and sharing His love and peace. Their instructions were to: Failed to do: whether he is able with ten thousand to meet him who comes against him with twenty thousand? And if not, while the other is yet a great way off, he sends an embassy and asks terms of peace. So therefore, whoever of you does not renounce all that he has cannot be my disciple. The Gospel of the Lord. Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ. In today’s Gospel Jesus tells us the parables of the man desiring to build a tower and the king preparing to go to war. Both needed to consider the cost of their plans in order to be successful. Being a disciple requires both a plan and a price. Keeping in mind the cost of the 3 requirements of a disciple, write your own discipleship plan, including any worldly obstacles you struggle with that detract you from Christ. How can you put God first in your life? Opposition: Pray this every morning…. Whoever does not bear his own cross and come after me, cannot be my disciple. For which of you, desiring to build a tower, does not first sit down and count the cost, whether he has enough to complete it? Otherwise, when he has laid a foundation, and is not able to finish, all who see it begin to mock him, saying, `This man began to build, and was not able to finish.' Or what king, going to encounter another king in war, will not sit down first and take counsel Pray for more disciples; travel light, trusting God for everything; do not linger; to use these words first upon entering a house: “Peace be to this house”; accept what others give to them; cure the sick and witness the nearness of God’s reign. To accept or reject the disciples was to accept or reject Christ. People who refuse to hear the Word of God will suffer more than the people of the city of Sodom. (Read Genesis 19) The disciples return successful and are full of joy. Jesus reminds His disciples not to be joyful that demons were subject to them, but for the fact they will have a place in Heaven. God made me to know Him, love Him, and serve Him. God has chosen me to lead others to Christ. I am sent forth to do His Will at each Mass. (“Missa” in Latin means “sent forth”) True Vine or Consequences. Choose the correct statement.

I will decide if I ever produce fruit. “To cling always to God and to the things of God-this must be our major effort; this must be the road that the heart follows unswervingly.” St. John Cassian 3.
