How close do you feel to Jesus Christ? Do you feel you have met him? Personally? Intimately? Have you sensed his call to be his disciples, to follow in his steps? Have you felt the joy of knowing Jesus Christ?
If a person claims to have met Jesus without being changed
then they have not met the real Jesus.
The Journey is a program of evangelization developed by Paulist Evangelization Ministries, and it provides a way for each of us to deepen our sense of the experience of Jesus in our lives.
The full program consists of three parts:
- In Part 1, each session focuses on our personal encounter with Jesus.
- In Part 2, participants reflect on what it means to belong to Jesus’ community, the Church.
- In Part 3, the sessions explore how we encounter Jesus’ way of life as disciples.
Six sessions, each 90 minutes, will help set your spiritual life in a new direction. Anyone can be part of these sessions—no matter how active you are in the parish. Everyone can benefit. Over that six week period, The Journey will give you many opportunities to renew and deepen your personal experience of Jesus. In line with the encouragement of Pope Francis, The Journey is a way to increase your sense of being a personal follower of Jesus.
“Let the risen Jesus enter your life, welcome him as a friend, with trust:
he is life!
“If up till now you have kept him at a distance, step forward.
He will receive you with open arms.
“If you have been indifferent, take a risk:
you won’t be disappointed.
“If following him seems difficult, don’t be afraid, trust him,
be confident that he is close to you,
he is with you
and he will give you the peace you are looking for
and the strength to live as he would have you do.”
