This term we are learning to be Attentive & Discerning.
Attentive: We are attentive when we listen to our calling from God to love and serve one another in all that we do. We are attentive to our experiences and can see where they will take us in our future vocations.
Discerning: We are discerning when we decide to do the right thing in the interest of the needs of others because we know the positive impact that will have on their lives.
Why is being attentive so important?
How could you use your gifts to be attentive to others?
Could you be a good listener? Could you help your friends? Could you give money to charity?
A Prayer for Attentiveness
Give us a spirit of attentiveness to turn our attention to those who we can help with the gifts and talents you have given us.
Show us how, with your assistance, we can learn to draw them closer to you, day by day, through kind acts of service.
Grateful and Generous
Let us be…
Grateful for our own gifts, for the gift of other people, and for the blessings of each day; and generous with our gifts, now and in the future.
