One of the many joys of my priesthood is to live in a community of priests who are on fire for spreading the Gospel. I am inspired daily by their love for Jesus Christ, their testimony, their prayer, their hard work, and their preaching.
Each Monday we gather for a little rest around the fire and share stories of our work of sharing the Gospel. I’ve often left our fire side chats thinking how good it would be if someone captured all the preaching that had been done throughout the week and put it one place. I kept waiting for someone else to do it until I realized that I probably should.
So, inspired by our talks around the fire, welcome to “afire”. It is the preaching of the Legionaries in the Tri-State, inspired by the charism of the Regnum Christi movement. My prayer is that it will be for you something of a “fireplace” where you can find light, warmth, and inspiration as you come closer to Jesus Christ.
Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love!
