CURRENT DISCUSSION SHEET:
1. Jean Vanier - Arms Wide Open - August 2019
Community, Virtues, Feeding the hungry
Jean Vanier - founder of the L'Arche communities, was a spiritual giant who longed to help people know and live with Jesus. This month we read how he did this - through encounters with the poorest and weakest in society, particularly those with mental illness. (TO)

2. A Taste of Lectio Divina - Bible Month - July 2019
The Bible, Holy Spirit, Reading, Meditation, Prayer, Contemplation
The Church has a long spiritual practice of reading Scripture slowly in a way that allows us to listen to a word or phrase that seems to ‘speak’. It is a personal way of listening to the Holy Spirit, and becoming spiritually attentive to the Word touching us inwardly. (TO)

3. Mary's Impact on Youth Today (2) - June 2019
Mission, Personal Faith Development, Marist Idendity
Even though different cultures speak in different languages, there is still a universal language of connection that goes beyond words. This helps us to understand each other's personalities, and feelings. This can be challenging, but so rewarding if we allow ourselves to just 'connect' (TO)

4. Mary's Impact on Youth Today (1) - May 2019
Marist Life, Identity, Mission, Global family
Marist Youth were invited to deepen their connection to the Marist identity through lenses of community, interiority, solidarity and mission. We, too, can weave our Marist identity and mission into our everyday life. (TO)

5. Being Made Welcome - April 2019
Virtues, Christian Life, Community
When we are made welcome, we feel blessed and honoured. It is important that we are welcoming to visitors and to those in our church communities, without expecting to be 'repaid' (TO)

6. St Joseph - March 2019
Saints, Family, faith, hope, love
St Joseph left a legacy to all. Inspirational in his role as father to Jesus and protector of the Holy Family, we can learn a great deal from his humility, kindness and great faith. (TO)

7. Smallness - February 2019
Christian life, outreach; personal faith development
Tiny irritations in life - like little foxes - can sometimes build up and destroy our composure. With God's grace, we can become attuned to hurting humanity, and how we can provide a word or a touch to those who need our understanding. (TO)

8. Advent - Watching; Waiting; Longing - December 2018
Advent, Hope
Our deepest desire, planted within us, is our Advent for Christ. (TO)

9. A Little is a Lot in God's Hands - November 2018
Christian Life; Virtues; Community; Feeding the hungry
Jesus's feeding of the crowds stands out and challenges us as disciples. We must, like the disciples, learn the value of small people and small things. (TO)

10. Young Marists on Mission - October 2018
mission, Marist Life, outreach; personal faith development
Do you sometimes wonder what you can do to make this world a better place? Magdalena Webb, a young Marist woman working for the Logos Project,(a Marist Youth Development organization, recalls a recent immersion experience in Brownsville, on the border of Mexico, and the inspiration it was to their group. (TO)
