  1. Awesome! Love the part of volunteer vs .baptismal responsibility! ! We often or I often think volunteering is a part of team talent treasure. I have never thought it as not being optional.
    Dr. Sutton hits it out of the part again. She was great when she visited the Diocese of Syracuse .
    I also liked the concept of the beloved being a “he or she”. I not so much a feminist as I like that perspective because it’s easy to slip yourself into that role. Thanks again for the awesome job.

  2. Excellent! I feel the call for greater conversion myself and plan to share this with our entire staff at Sacred Heart. We have been using the “discipleship” language in our all-family catechesis this year, and this defines both the opportunity and the challenge for each and all of us. Thanks for the illumination and accompanying audio – Shalom! Greg
