Receive instruction that respects academic integrity and the Truth as interpreted by the Magisterium. These are of the utmost importance in the efforts of Holy Apostles to form the servants of God. Saint General characteristics[edit] The English word saint is from the Latin sanctus, in origin a term in indigenous tradition connected to the name of the god Sancus, but in Christian context used to translate the Greek ἅγιος (hagios), derived from the verb ἁγιάζω (hagiazo), which means "to set apart", "to sanctify" or "to make holy".[6] The word appears 229 times in the Greek New Testament,[clarification needed] and 60 times in the corresponding text of the King James Version.[7] As used by the apostolic authors of scripture, saint did not refer to deceased persons who have been granted sainthood, but rather to living persons who had dedicated themselves to God.[6] The word was originally a technical term in ancient Roman religion, but due to its "globalized" use in Christianity, the modern term (in English or Romance languages) is now also seen as translation of comparable terms for people "worthy of veneration for their holiness or sanctity" in other religions.

Beyond Countercultural Catholicism - Catholic Exchange Over the last three years, serving the Church professionally in various ways, I have heard a lot about the need for a “countercultural” Catholic witness. Clergy and lay leaders regularly stress certain ways in which our faith goes against the grain of popular culture, especially regarding secularization and certain moral issues. We have heard often about the “countercultural” nature of pro-life advocacy, authentic marriage, and sexual morality. Likewise, it is said that Christian belief itself – and orthodox Catholicism in particular – is countercultural, in an age of relativism and hyper-pluralism.

Discipleship In a Consumer World - Catholic Exchange It is hard to live a Christian life in the modern world. But the main difficulty does not come from the overt enemies of the Church, or the issues on which the so-called “culture wars” turn. Of course, I acknowledge the threat from those who would usurp the Church’s freedom, and degrade cultural morality. In our everyday lives, however, such radicalism is not the main obstacle to discipleship. The difficulty of Christian life in our culture has more to do with a general atmosphere of indifference to truth, made worse by a culture of consumerism. Our challenge is to live faithfully in a society that tries to reduce everything – even God Himself – to the level of a lifestyle accessory.

The Divine Mercy Message from the Marians of the Immaculate Conception The message of The Divine Mercy is simple. It is that God loves us — all of us. And, he wants us to recognize that His mercy is greater than our sins, so that we will call upon Him with trust, receive His mercy, and let it flow through us to others. Thus, all will come to share His joy. The Divine Mercy message is one we can call to mind simply by remembering ABC: 47 Best Quotes From Pope Francis’ Cultural Manifesto Pope Francis recently wrote an Evangelii Gaudium– an apostolic exhortations on the Church’s gospel mission in the modern world – for all clergy and lay people.
