Resolve to build your Christian legacy
Legend surrounds the brief life of Saint Wenceslaus I, Duke of Bohemia (907-935), originally venerated because of his martyrdom but most remembered today because of a Christmas carol that celebrates him as a model of generosity.
Separating fact from fiction may be difficult after 1,000 years, but your own record of generosity should be easier to tally. Will anyone sing praises of your generosity a millennium from now? A hundred years? Ten minutes after you are gone? If not, what can you do today to start building your own lasting legacy as a disciple of Christ?
Perhaps you can begin by asking yourself the questions Pope Francis asked in his Christmas homily: How do we welcome the tenderness of God? Do I allow God to love me?
(From VISION's collection of reflections for the Year of Consecrated Life)
A year to say thank you
During the Year of Consecrated Life, as we are called in a special way to take time to celebrate the Catholic sisters, brothers, priests and others in consecrated life whose faith, hope, and love have been an inspiration to us, please take time to say thank you.
We welcome your thank-you stories. Please feel free to post them on our facebook page or send them along to us to share.
And please make use of the many other Year of Consecrated Life materials we have available on our website, such as other prayers and podcasts, weekly reflections, and much more.
