Discipleship

“The torch of our faith has been given to us not to delight our eyes but to enkindle the torches of our fellow men.” -Servant of God Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen

Discipleship.

Something that we all need.  Something that much of our culture has lost.

In this youth group lesson, the topic of Discipleship is taught using Mary as an example.   I explain to kids that discipleship involves "sitting at the feet of" someone.  You learn from their words and actions, you live the way they live, you emulate what they believe.  Mary was the first and most perfect disciple of Christ.  She "pondered all these things in her heart" and told us to "do whatever he tells you."
