The Door of Spiritual Growth

Our faith journey begins with an encounter with Jesus Christ and is constantly in motion. Our ability to open this door helps determine whether we are moving closer to God or falling away from Him. This door encourages us to Encounter Jesus on a daily basis as we progress in our faith journey.

At St. James there are numerous opportunities to attend a variety of spiritual growth exercises outside of participating in the sacraments and Mass. I always look at spiritual growth as practice and preparation to encounter Jesus. It would be rare for any team to advance to victory without practice. So why not practice to meet Jesus? There is no doubt in my mind that the more I practice my faith, the better person I will become and be prepared to live with the Lord for eternity. Isn’t that what life is all about?
