Special to this blog: THE DAUGHTERS OF ST PAUL BEGIN A CHARISM COURSE IN SOUTH CAROLINA!


Beginning January 21st from 5:30-7:30 in the John Paul II Evangelization Room of the Pauline Book & Media Center on 243 King Street, Charles, SC, the Sisters of the Daughters of St. Paul will begin courses on the Pauline Charism for the lay association.

The Pauline Lay Association was founded by Blessed James Alberione in 1917. It is one of the branches of the Pauline Family of religious and lay apostles. The course consists of Eucharistic Adoration, a deeper study of spirituality and faith, and evangelization. There will be Scripture, music, short movies, movie clips and faith sharing to illustrate the Pauline Charism.


BE PART OF A NEW SPRINGTIME IN THE CHURCH
Pope John Paul II called the Church to a New Evangelization and heralded a “great springtime” for Christianity. He called Blessed James Alberione “The First Apostle of the New Evangelization.”  As a lay catholic you may realize that most of our contemporaries meet the risen Christ through you.

ARE YOU CALLED TO BRING THE GOSPEL THROUGH MEDIA?
If you feel called to bring the gospel using the new means of communication, writing, art, books, music, movies, and social media or want to experience a deeper spiritual life through scripture and prayer, join us for monthly sessions in the Pauline Charism.

WHAT IS THE PAULINE CHARISM?
“Charism” is the Greek word used in the New Testament for “gratuitous gift.” These are spiritual gifts given to all Christians by the Holy Spirit to represent Christ as a channel of God’s goodness for people.  The Pauline Charism is a way of living Christ in the spirit of the Apostle St. Paul. It is a Charism in the Church that integrates personality, natural talent, life-experience, education and creativity for the spread of the gospel.  The Pauline Cooperator is a faithful lay person whom the Spirit calls to share in the Charism of Blessed Father Alberione and Mother Thecla Merlo and to realize it together with the other religious institutes of the Pauline Family.

I didn't realize that the two things were alternative ways to do the same thing. You're relaunching the distance program then that descended from the work done a decade or so ago? I should add explicitly here a message about the distance program as an alternative to those who are not near Charleston, shouldn't I? How's the best way for them to express interest in that? How cool that you have interest from so many distant areas.
