St. Francis of Assisi
Francis was born in 1182 to a merchant couple who imported luxurious fabrics and sold them in Italy. His parents thought Francis would also become a successful fabric merchant. Instead, he decided to join the second crusade and had a fancy suit of armor made for him. But on his first night out, he had a vision: the Lord was sending him back. He then faced the jeers of his neighbors, who thought him a coward. Francis, undeterred, turned away from war to peace and vowed he would await a further sign from God.
Francis then had a vision in which God told him to repair His church. Francis took this literally and with his own hands began to rebuild the church where he had been praying. But God meant a bigger church: Francis’s mission was to help rebuild the whole faith.
Scripture Verse (Matthew 14:27-31)
In the account in Matthew’s gospel, Jesus comes to the apostles, walking on the water during the storm, they are afraid and think he is a ghost. Peter tells him “Lord if it is you; command me to come to you on the water.” Jesus said to him “Come.” Peter got out of the boat and began to walk on the water toward Jesus, but when he saw how strong the wind was, he became frightened and beginning to sink, he cried out, “Lord save me.” Jesus stretched out his hand and caught him and said to him “Oh, you of little faith, why did you doubt?”
Lauren Daigle - Trust in You
So Why Do I have to move out of my comfort zone? In a previous email, we approached the subject of “corporal and spiritual works of mercy” and hoped that you might begin to understand that it’s important for us to learn how to love others through service. In this Lauren Daigle song, “Trust in You,” she sings about trusting in God. Please answer the following questions. What does it mean to step out of your comfort zone? Would trusting in God help you to step out of your comfort zone even further? Please give us a few examples or ideas of how you will begin to serve others in the weeks and months to come that involves stepping out of your comfort zone. Please share an example of how your sponsor or parent has stepped out of their comfort zone to serve others.
