Thank you for sharing these thoughts, as they are most helpful to me and, I’m sure, to others in our forum. One of the purposes of this project is not only to ascertain the tools we will need, but to also fully understand the role of the laity in the world and where we, as laity, are expected to function. To understand that the world is ordered to the human person, and that secular things, though not profane, are temporal, crystallized for me how I might better approach friends and co-workers with the message of salvation. As we often tell catechumens, we are all on a journey of faith – yet in different locations on that journey. So, we each need to communicate our journey with the other members of the forum and I am excited about the possibilities this dialog will produce – beginning October 1st.
