Thank you, Fr. Tangorra, for your article. There continues to be, even after explicit Church direction to the contrary, serious deficiency among the laity in our formation needed for us to live our vocation — our part in the apostolate of the Church to evangelize. The Church affirms of us:. Christ conferred on the Apostles and their successors the duty of teaching, sanctifying, and ruling in His name and power. But the laity likewise share in the priestly, prophetic, and royal office of Christ and therefore have their own share in the mission of the whole people of God in the Church and in the world.
In this way, their temporal activity openly bears witness to Christ and promotes the salvation of men. Since the laity, in accordance with their state of life, live in the midst of the world and its concerns, they are called by God to exercise their apostolate in the world like leaven, with the ardor of the spirit of Christ. This vocation of the laity requires of our shepherds, adequate shepherding.
We need the offices of priest, prophet and king given to the clergy exercised our our behalf — making us a people rightly disposed for the sacraments dispensed that they may be fruitful; forming us rightly in the Word, in the revealed truth of God; shepherding us rightly toward full maturity in Christ and the fulfillment of our call.
Ceremonies however beautiful, or associations however flourishing, will be of little value if they are not directed toward the education of men to Christian maturity. Every act of ecclesiastical governance, consequently, must be aimed at fostering communion and mission. The call to the laity to be witnesses in the secular world, to be evangelizers in the secular world, to defend the Faith against the anti-Catholics in the world — our call to be Catholics in the secular world — requires adequate formation, which requires the active and sincere help of the clergy.

I hoped to hear of this need for solid and complete adult faith formation for the laity in your article, explicitly addressed, because we need the problem to be addressed more faithfully by priests — by our pastors. Dear Thomas, I am glad that you found this essay helpful. I understand the need for us priests to help train the laity to be evangelists.
I work as a chaplain at William Paterson University in Wayne, NJ and part of my job is to train the young people to be evangelists. Honestly, most every parish provides Bible Studies, Faith Formation for Youths and Adults, and other such opportunities. I know most parishes are always looking for good catechists.
Vincent de Paul societies, soup kitchens and homeless shelters that also provide the faithful opportunities to evangelize and become a witness to the face of Christ to those who are under-privileged. And, lets not forget that our Catholic schools can always use volunteers to help and to fund-raise! There are many opportunities to get involved. Many parishes use a stewardship model these days that asks their parishioners to tithe, not merely money, but time and talent. In this situation the different ministries and organizations of the parish have a fair for people to sign-up and get more involved.
Sadly, in most cases its always the same people who sign-up for everything.
There is no lack of opportunity to serve. But, I hope that you find a parish that will afford you the opportunity to exercise the threefold munus that you have received at your Baptism and Confirmation. All rights reserved.

The Hebrew Covenant: Priest, Prophet, and King: Prefigurations of Christ Before we can briefly dip into the rich heritage of the notion of priest, prophet, and king in the Hebrew Scriptures, it must first be stated that Christians understand both Testaments,Hebrew and Christian, as one unified work of Divine Revelation.
Prophet The greatest of all the prophets was Moses, who gave the Law, Torah. See Maccabees Prophecy is not necessarily a vision of the future, but an exhortation to obey the Torah, and about teaching the Torah, so as to avoid the malediction of God.
Exploring the Identity and Mission of Jesus
Confirmation Incorporated into the Church by baptism and given the foundational character needed for anyone to exercise the Christian vocation, the sacrament of confirmation acts as a capstone upon baptism, the way Pentecost is the capstone upon Easter. The Ministerial Priesthood There is a difference in both degree and essence—ontology—between a non-baptized, a baptized, a confirmed, and an ordained person. About Father Philip-Michael F. Tangorra, STL Fr. Comments Thomas Richard says:. October 30, at am.
Thank you for your work in the Church. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age. Matthew In a Biblical context, a disciple is one who is enrolled in the school of Jesus; He is their leader, their teacher, and they desire to learn from and look more like Him. What does a disciple learn in the school of Jesus?
Three things: their new identity in Christ, their calling, and their new purpose. Understanding these things is the key to living as a disciple who makes disciples. Discipleship begins not with what we do but who we are.
Before Jesus did anything. She delivers Israel from the hands of Holofernes and she too leads Israel in a magnificent new song that is preserved in the Greek version of the Hebrew Bible, the Septuagint. Because of her astonishing faith, and like Mary risks it all, she is to praised. And perhaps this is why they were so treasured by her son.
