The Way


The year of St. Paul…

This past Sunday the reading for mass was on the conversion of St. Paul, one of the first great evangelists of the Catholic faith. The story of Saul to Paul is a great story; it truly shows that God works in mysterious ways.

Saul, as he was known before his conversion, was on his way to Damasks to persecute the Christians, the followers of Christ. The movement was known as the “way”. I like that, for some reason that really struck me, the “WAY”.

But if you put it simply, Catholicism is the “Way”; it is the Church that Jesus Christ established here on earth. History proves the point and the Gospels point to it.

The “Way”…

It fits in to so many different scenarios:

1.       I have found the “way”

2.       I have lost the “way”

3.       I know the “way”

4.       I want to know the “way”

5.       I have known the “way”

6.       Teach me the “way”

7.       Be the “way”

 

And so on, it allows for the imperfection of humanity to exist and allows for the grace of God to priciest. God, in all his glory never seems to stop amazing me, such a simple work, yet so much meaning.

 

Today I will continue along the path, the “way” to God. I will walk slowly with my hands to my side and my eyes on the path, following the footsteps of Jesus. I will allow Mary, the mother of God, to hold my trembling hand and guide me to her son, whispering soft words of love. Today I will allow the Holy Spirit to wipe the tears of sorrow from my eyes so I can see my “way” down the path of salvation. Today I will continue my journey along the path of the “way”

About Paul Sposite

Paul Sposite - Life Coach I began my career as an instructor. As an instructor there are two basic requirements. You have to know yourself, so you know where you’re drawing your inspiration from. And you have to actively listen to the others, and then respond to the subtext of what they are saying. In learning about myself I started to focus a lot on my students, how they learned, what questions they were asking and how I could best modify my methods to best serve them. I believe that if you use your real life problems/issues as insights to the issues you need to heal, you’ll grow. From my experience in the classroom, creating curriculum and material to support my training, I developed an interest in how people process information. This interest turned into my interest in Life Coaching.
