Xt3 Podcast: SCENE 2012 - A Podcast on Xt3.comhttp://www.xt3.com/library/view.php?id=10367SCENE (Sydney Congress Embracing the New Evangelisation) provides a mini World Youth Day experience in the heart of Sydney during non World Youth Day years. SCENE 2012 will build on Madrid 2011 and help to prepare for Rio in 2013. IN HIM is the theme of SCENE 2012. During this Year of Grace we have been invited to contemplate the face of Christ and to recognise, respond and receive the grace that is being offered to us in him. SCENE is an event where you can do just that. At SCENE we will START IN HIM through prayer, preaching, the Scriptures and the Sacraments, CONTINUE IN HIM through teachings and workshops. Finally, by our presence in the city with the Vocations Expo, live music, and evangelisation initiatives, SCENE will help us to GO FORTH IN HIM to witness to the abundant life he offers.

One of the most effective ways is to pray with the Word of God, assimilating it until it becomes part of ourselves. Then when we evangelise we give Jesus, alive in our hearts. This can transform the world, our society and our families. Verbum Dei will share from their experiences and demonstrate a method of praying with the Word of God in small groups that can lead people to Jesus. In 1998 Kylie Cullen (BA, BTh, STB) entered the Verbum Dei Missionary Fraternity, an Institute of Consecrated Life, in Sydney and professed her Perpetual Vows in 2009. She has dedicated herself to their specific charism of prayer and ministry of the Word through facilitating spiritual retreats, schools of the Word, schools of formation and sacramental programmes in the parish.Thu, 19 Jul 2012 07:02:20 GMThttp://www.xt3.com/library/view.php?id=10367&episodeId=1746http://www.xt3.com/library/view.php?id=10367&episodeId=1746Reaching Gen Y - Youth Mission TeamReaching Gen Y How do we reach Gen Y?

Dave Callaghan, MGLBeing a True Disciple In the early church, Christianity was a persecuted religion. If you chose Baptism, you knew that your commitment to Jesus might be tested by torture, even death. Slowly Christianity became an accepted part of society, and discipleship became simply a 'lifestyle choice'. However, the Church is moving back into a time of persecution, and again we are being called to radical discipleship. What does this mean in a modern world? How do we decide for sainthood in a culture of compromise? What will be the consequences if we take this stand for Christ?Thu, 19 Jul 2012 02:49:10 GMThttp://www.xt3.com/library/view.php?id=10367&episodeId=1742http://www.xt3.com/library/view.php?id=10367&episodeId=1742The Spirituality & Mission of the Catholic ArtistThe Spirituality & Mission of the Catholic Artist "you are the custodians of beauty in the world."
