Bible Study Evangelista - How to Be a Monstrance, Atlanta Eucharistic Congress, 2019

August 26, 2019
 

Have you prayed and prayed about, and worked and worked on a situation, but it has not changed in the least? Could it be because you are operating in your flesh, rather than in the Spirit? What does the Holy Spirit want to do?

Here’s a little different treat: my talk from this year’s Archdiocese of Atlanta’s Eucharistic Congress.

Thank you to my newest Friends of the Show, Janet L; Patricia H; Lindsay B; Lisa P; Christina S; Gail & Chuck D; Shawn S; Shelley M; and Janette S, for loving and lifting me!

Bible Study Evangelista is on the Laudate app!

LOVE the Word® is a Bible study method based on Mary’s own practice: lectio without the Latin.

L – Listen (Receive the Word.)

O – Observe (Choose one or more of the following personality approaches to connect the passage to your life and recent events.)

Every FIAT temperament gets the same Observe step this week:

In what relationship or circumstance have you been relying solely on your own understanding rather than seeking God’s will? How can LOVE the Word help you discern God’s guidance?

V – Verbalize (Pray about your thoughts and emotions.)

Remembering that He loves you and that you are in His presence, talk to God about the particulars of your O – Observe step. You may want to write your reflections in your LOVE the Word® journal. Or, get a free journal page and guide in the right-hand margin.

E – Entrust (May it be done to me according to your word!)

Jesus, I trust in You! + Amen.

*LOVE the Word® exercises are offered according to FIAT: the four personalities, or “prayer forms,” explored in Prayer and Temperament, by Chester Michael and Marie Norrisey: Franciscan, Ignatian, Augustinian, and Thomistic: FIAT! These prayer forms correspond to the Myers-Briggs personality types.
