How I was led by the Nazareth spirit?
Two significant changes have happened to me since I became an LJ:
First, it has made me aware of my mission in the Church. I became aware that, like the clergy and the religious, I have also an important and irreplaceable role to play in the church. I realized that the Church will not succeed in its mission unless the laity, who comprises the majority member of the Church, is activated. Thanks to Lay Josephine!
Second, I see work differently now. Before, I just see work as a means of livelihood. Now, I see God in my work. I have become aware that work is a participation in the creative, redemptive, and transformative work of God. This awareness of God’s presence in work inspires and motivates me to work well, knowing that the quality of my work reflects the quality of my love for God. Oh, how the world of work will change if only it is animated by the spirit of Nazareth. Thanks to SSJ!
