This is the 1st of 3 presentations given at a Parish Mission on February 22-24, 2015 at Cathedral of Christ the King in Superior, WI. Using the "Fruits of the Spirit" that St. Paul writes about in Galatians 5:22-23, we can look for these signs in our journey of faith: Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self-Control. We look for these "fruits" in four regions of our lives:
- WHAT do I do with the "stuff" in my life?
- WHO are the people in my life?
- HOW do I behave?
- WHY do I do what I do?
As we look for the signs of the Spirit in our lives, we can quickly and clearly observe God's hand at work in our hearts.
