PRIESTFIT PRESENTATION CHALLENGE
"Be eager to present yourself as acceptable to God, a workman who causes no disgrace, imparting the word of truth without deviation." 2 Tim 2:15
Jan 2-Feb 2, the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord. The prophet Malachi asks us, "who will endure the day of his coming? And who can stand when he appears?" As priests we are called to offer due sacrifice to the Lord. Desiring to better our health and fitness in the new year, let us be refined in the refiner's fire. Like Jesus, let us also be tested through what we suffer so that we will be able to help those who are also being tested. With the help of the Holy Family, we will become strong, and we will be more able to serve the King of Glory and his holy church.
The Presentation challenge is a check in with our brother priests on the following goals:
Start/end weight (not necessarily about loss, some may need to gain or maintain)
Spiritual exercise (sacrifice)
We will offer a daily reflection to help in this journey. The goals are to be presented with the Lord in a new way on this sacred feast and to ignite a community of brothers who wish to carry forth a message of wellness in our presbyterate.
