This site offers a virtual study group, Consecration to Jesus through Mary, to promote fellowship for those of us who desire it but may not have enough time to participate in extra activities outside of home and work or school life. The purpose of this virtual forum is to enable you to participate in a group that is not time-bound and is at your fingertips, to share your insights with others and benefit from the insights of others. All content is monitored and may be removed if it does not fit the general objectives of the forum.
If you are actively trying to live your Christian faith, you probably talk to God regularly. You may engage in personal prayer, mass, prayer groups, devotionals, or one of many other means of prayer. As your relationship with God grows, inevitably, the question comes up, "How can I best serve you?." Often the answer is simple, though we don't necessarily see its value, "Live out your vocation with love and truth." If you're a religious, live out that vocation as it was intended and according to your responsibilities with fervor and love. If you are married, be the best husband/father, wife/mother you can be, always serving your family in purity and with love even when difficult discussions and circumstances arise. And so it follows for every person, no matter their current station in life. Still some are called to alter their course of life for God. Prayer and spiritual direction help ascertain the ministry that God may desire.
This world is an incredible place. The people, each individual unique, have the potential for greatness. Yet often we find ourselves pursuing misguided ideals and goals, sometimes through no fault of our own. This misdirection of our true purpose in this life takes a great toll on our success as a society and directs us away from our path towards eternity with God. We continue to, and always will, struggle wlth crime, drug use, depression, poverty and more. Personally, we struggle to varying degrees with the pursuit of a misconstrued "happiness" often at the expense of others.
