“So I exhort the elders among you, as a fellow elder and a witness of the sufferings of Christ as well as a partaker in the glory that is to be revealed. Tend the flock of God that is your charge, not by constraint but willingly, not for shameful gain but eagerly, not as domineering over those in your charge but being examples to the flock. And when the chief Shepherd is manifested you will obtain the unfading crown of glory. Likewise you that are younger be subject to the elders. Clothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another, for “God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.””
– 1 Peter 5:1-5
Live the Faith! Tip of the Week:
If not for the influence and mentorship of Jan Tyranowski, we may have never known Karol Wojtyła as Pope Saint John Paul II. Jan’s willingness to share the love of God and the beauty of the Church with the young men in his community resulted in more than ten men becoming priests and one of them becoming one of the greatest saints in modern history. Today, on the feast day of Pope Saint John Paul II, take some time to pray about who you might be able to help mentor or, if you need a mentor of your own, for God to send that person into your life.
Pope Saint John Paul the Great, Pray for us!
