“The Cycle of the Christian Life”
Meeting Jesus is the beginning of new life. From this encounter, we are free to choose whether we follow Him or return to our former lives. If we follow, we become converted, bit by bit, to be like Him. This allows us to enter into shared lives of love with Him, a state we call communion. Those who enter communion with Christ have everything (the summit of the spiritual life), but they cannot keep it to themselves or it will die. From communion we must go on mission to help others to meet Christ. In this passing on of the Faith, the cycle begins anew both for the one sharing and the one hearing. This is the fundamental cycle of the Christian life, and the way of eternal life handed down by the Apostles: Encounter, Conversion, Communion, and Mission.
