We ARE – – the Fantastic Four!!
Does God give us superpowers? Yes, if we let Him! Along my Cursillo Journey:
- He stretches me . . . . to do things I never wanted to do, to go places I never asked to go. I am not a natural leader – but He’s led me to deliver Rollos, serve as Rector, chair the School of Leaders, take active roles in the Parish Ministries and the Knights of Columbus, and to meet people I never would’ve encountered – especially Jesus! Reed Richards, Mr. Fantastic
- He makes me burn with the joy of faith . . . to evangelize, to share the witness of my life, to light up my moveable square yard, to keep those around me on fire! Johnny Storm, Human Torch.
- He gives me strength . . . . makes me a rock, enables me to do things beyond my own power. Ben Grimm, The Thing
- He provides an invisible force . . . . the power of prayer – to persevere on the Journey, to act without drawing attention, to protect those I love, to do things that only the Holy Spirit can do and only the Holy Spirit can know. Sue Storm, The Invisible Woman.
The Fantastic Four had to work as a team to defeat Dr. Doom. What powers has God given you? Are you letting your superpowers work to bring Jesus to your world and defeat doom?
Fortunately, there are more than four of us – our School of Leaders will meet on April 14, May12, and June 9 at 7 p.m. at St. Joseph’s Parish in Freeburg, IL. Please join your fellow Leaders in faith! (And, with any luck, this could be my last column – you’re freeeee!!)
Romans 1: 12: “What I mean is that both you and I will be helped at the same time, you by my faith and I by yours.”
De Colores and Peace!
