This is the 2nd of 3 presentations given at a Parish Mission on February 22-24, 2015 at Cathedral of Christ the King in Superior, WI.  We look at three areas in life to determine our spiritual fitness:

  • Resources: the "stuff" in our lives
  • People: how we relate to others
  • Myself: Body, Mind, Heart, and Soul

Looking at these areas we ask three simple questions:

  1. What external measure can I use to evaluate my life?
  2. What patterns do I see?
  3. How does this help me be a better disciple of Christ? 

As we determine our fitness, we call upon the Lord to guide our efforts as we continue on our journey of faith.
