Thomas Hall, founder of LoveToBeCatholic.com, a sort of Catholic You Tube, writes about his experience of the small group version of the Called & Gifted process in Minnesota last weekend.
Tom had been invited to tell his story and received a warm welcome. He writes:
"The Called and Gifted seminar in a great idea. We all have received gifts, through Baptism and Confirmation, for the ways God intends his love to reach others through us. This seminar helps people discover these gifts! I hope these types of programs become widespread. I believe that many lay men and women want do more, but do not quite known how to discern God's call. This weekend, a group of wonderful and dedicated Catholics in Faribault, Minnesota are sacrificing their time with family to figure it out. God bless them."
Groups like the one Tom describes are meeting all over the country and other parts of the world from Cairns, Australia to Singapore. As the sister facilitating a discernment group in her mid-western parish wrote us last week. "The process is amazing."
What do we expect? When we start seriously attending to the work of the Holy Spirit in the lives of real men and women, how could it help but be amazing?
