Practical resources. Living Your Discipleship includes resources for lectio divina prayer and is designed for use in small groups for Advent, Lent, or RCIA programs.
Wide audience. Drawing from Scripture and real-life stories, Living Your Discipleship is written for Catholics and other Christians, from youth to older adults.
Grounded in real life. Findings from the Collegeville Institute Seminars’ research on vocation are incorporated throughout the book.
Companion videos. Visit our video page to view Lives Explored stories from Christians living out their callings to discipleship.
“At a time when a revolutionary pope is calling us all to be “missionary disciples,”
the authors of this slim volume offer us a luminous set of meditations on the basic features of Christian discipleship. They remind us that Christianity is as much a way of life as it is a belief system.
Filled with practical yet perceptive insight, these reflections offer a wonderful resource for small faith sharing groups and RCIA programs and would provide rich spiritual reading for retreatants.”
—Richard Gaillardetz, Joseph Chair of Catholic Systematic Theology at Boston College, and Diana Gaillardetz, parish RCIA and Adult Faith Formation Coordinator
