Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Sherry Weddell's book Forming Intentional Disciples is an excellent resource for Catholics interested in going to heaven. I strongly encourage you to read it and live it.

As a Catholic, you have a responsibility to live your life for Our Lord in an INTENTIONAL way. That means you follow Our Lord as a disciple and live your life according to Our Lord's will - practicing your faith when it is convenient and when it is difficult. As an INTENTIONAL DISCIPLE, others see you a faithful Catholic who loves Our Lord.

Being an INTENTIONAL DISCIPLE requires a conversion and transformation. There is a constant battle between the forces of evil and the forces of good in your life. Every soul is constantly being tempted to reject Our Lord and seek the way of the world. Our Lord is with you. Can you be sure you are with Our Lord? Conversion is key to having a deeper relationship with Our Lord. You are either growing closer to Our Lord or you are not. Weddell reminds us that most Catholics are not disciples of Christ and do not even know what it means to be a disciple of Christ! For the next several weeks, we will be looking at the FIVE STAGES OF CONVERSION that are offered in Weddell's book. These stages are:

INITIAL TRUST
SPIRITUAL CURIOSITY
SPIRITUAL OPENNESS
SPIRITUAL SEEKING
INTENTIONAL DISCIPLESHIP

Everyone needs Christ but not everyone knows how to find Him or just how far he or she has strayed away from Our Lord. In the next several weeks, these Pastor's Notes will address each one of these stages of conversion. Knowing where you are on the journey is essential to becoming an INTENTIONAL DISCIPLE. Conversion of the heart and mind will lead a person closer to Christ and to becoming an INTENTIONAL DISCIPLE.

Let us pray for each other along the journey that ALL may seek to become intentional disciples and be open to conversion.

God Bless, Fr. Don Kline Pastor

Formación de Los discípulos intencionales

Queridos hermanos y hermanas:

El libro de Sherry Weddell "Formar Discípulos Intencionales" es un excelente recurso para los católicos interesados en ir al cielo. Le recomiendo a usted para leerlo y vivirlo.

Como católico, usted tiene la responsabilidad de vivir tu vida por Nuestro Señor de una manera intencional. Eso significa que usted sigue Nuestro Señor como discípulo y vive su vida de acuerdo a la voluntad de Nuestro Señor - la práctica de su fe cuando es conveniente y cuando es difícil. Como DISCÍPULO INTENCIONAL, los demás te ven un católico fiel que ama a Nuestro Señor.

Ser un discípulo INTENCIONAL requiere una conversión y transformación. Hay una batalla constante entre las fuerzas del mal y las fuerzas del bien en su vida. Cada alma es constantemente tentado a rechazar Nuestro Señor y buscar el camino del mundo. Nuestro Señor está contigo. ¿Puede usted estar seguro de que usted está con el Señor? La conversión es clave para tener una relación más profunda con el Señor. Usted está bien creciendo más cerca de Nuestro Señor o no lo eres.

Weddell nos recuerda que la mayoría de los católicos no son discípulos de Cristo y ni siquiera saben lo que significa ser un discípulo de Cristo! Para las próximas semanas, vamos a estar buscando en las cinco etapas de la conversión que se ofrecen en el libro de Weddell. Estas etapas son:

TRUST INICIAL
CURIOSIDAD ESPIRITUAL
APERTURA ESPIRITUAL
búsqueda espiritual
DISCIPULADO INTENCIONAL

Todo el mundo necesita a Cristo, pero no todos saben cómo encontrarlo o lo lejos que él o ella ha desviado de Nuestro Señor. En las próximas semanas, Notas de éstos Pastor abordarán cada una de estas etapas de la conversión. Saber dónde se encuentra en el viaje es esencial para convertirse en un DISCÍPULO INTENCIONAL. La conversión del corazón y la mente conducirá a una persona más cerca de Cristo y de convertirse en un DISCÍPULO INTENCIONAL.

Oremos unos por otros a lo largo del viaje que todos puedan tratar de convertirse en discípulos intencionales y estar abiertos a la conversión.

Que Dios los bendiga,
Padre Don Kline
