Spirituality and Discipleship


How do we follow Jesus Christ today?
How do we live life fully, with Jesus Christ at the centre of our lives?

Christian Spirituality is about focusing on Jesus Christ - and discipleship is the process of constantly returning our hearts, minds, bodies, and souls to face him throughout a lifetime – so that we become more and more like Christ himself. It is . . .

To sit at the feet of Jesus,
To learn the love of God and neighbour,
To look for and wait on God,
And listen for
The Spirit breathing life into our lives:
Deep calling to deep.

This is something I do,
In intimacy of prayer and reflection.
This is something we do,
As Christ’s body, the Church.
This is spirituality and discipleship
As the very hands of God.

To be filled with the Holy Spirit,
And nurtured for Christ;
To be faithful to his Word,
And formed for the works of God:
This is spirituality and discipleship
Walking hand in hand.
