Assessing Contemporary Challenges with the Mind of Christ
January 25, 2016 @ 7:00 PM - 8:00 PMFREE
Special guest speaker and renown spiritual author FR. JOSEPH ESPER, Pastor, Immaculate Conception Catholic Church, Ira Twp., MI, reflects much of St. Paul’s counsel: “But test everything; hold fast what is good” (1 Thess. 5:21), as well as those of St. Peter: “Therefore, preparing your minds for action, and being sober-minded, set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ” (1 Peter 1:13).
“Assessing Contemporary Challenges with the Mind of Christ” offers fresh perspectives for Catholics seeking to honestly recognize and overcome the unique spiritual challenges confronting us in our increasingly secularized society. Fr. Esper offers down-to-earth spiritual remedies that will include our need to be re-grounded in daily prayer, repentance, and an ongoing conversion to Christ (Mt. 4:17) so that we may become “as wise as serpents and innocent as doves” (Mt. 10:16) amid the present cultural milieu.
Ultimately, Fr. Joseph Esper challenges each of us to consciously accept (with renewed fervor) our universal call to holiness: “Do not be conformed to this age, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect” (Rom. 12:2).
