9.00 – 9.30:        At ease, be at home!

9.30 – 10.30:       Mass: Creating a Eucharistic Experience at Home

  • What has worked and What has not worked in our passing our faith?
  • Your Home is the Church
  • Kitchen is the sacristy; Washroom is your Baptistery; Bed Living Room is your Choir area; Dining table is the altar and your parents are the primary minsters of the Eucharist/ The priest at home. So you are the priest! Are you Happy!
  • So what did Jesus do at the last supper table?
  • Living the Eucharist at home by creating a Eucharistic Experience at home where there should be a parallel between:
    • Mass parts (Celebrant Greeting; Penitential Rite; Word proclaimed; Offertory; breaking of bread and wine; communion and farewell
    • Mass Actions need to have a parallel at home (Take, bless , give thanks, break and give)

10.30 – 10.45:    Morning Tea Break

10.45 – 11. 30: Share your struggles in passing the faith

11:30 – 12.30:    Challenges in accepting realities: Our own brokenness and flaws. (wedding at Cana and the Syrophoenician woman episode)

  • Are we truthful? Jesus remained silent to Pilate’s question, “what is truth” and only the truth can set us free.
  • We may have facts, facts can indicate truth, but truth is always an emotional experience not a rational concept!
  • Realities Exist, we can deny it and not bypass it, but Realities is the first sign of truth
  • Accepting the Realities is the second and the link to truth
  • Letting the accepted realities change us, alter us, refine us in actually the truth.

12.30 – 1.15:      Lunch

1:15 – 2.30:        Accompanying on the Faith Journey without arguing or admonishing.

Emmaus Example: God can be experienced only through you and NOT through a seminary or at Potta. Luke 15:

2.30 – 3.15:        Let us listen to them! (Five youngsters why they stopped going to church etc.,)

3.15 – 4.00:        Leveraging your children’s beauty and all they have.

They too have God-sense you need to recognize that. Do not make children in your image! They have a better person to be imaged after and he said that thousand of years ago! Your job is to recognize that image! Those become your connecting points!

4.00 – 4.30:         Creating the Eucharistic Experience at home:

Sum up and praying for consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
