Spiritual Heroes in New Jersey

I travelled to New Jersey for a Spiritual Hero training day as part of the Spiritual Books program at Immaculate Conception Seminary at Seton Hall. About 50 people took part in three sessions which explored the background to the Spiritual Hero program, the structure of the Hero's Quest and the practical ways we use the program to help people with life changes and spiritual growth.

I'll be posting some photos of the event soon, and am going to try to do some posts giving more information about Ordinary Hero, Spiritual Hero and Working Hero.

Everybody wants to be a hero, nobody wants to be saved. We all want to be saviors, but we are never the sinners who need saving. The only reason St. Paul was a hero was because he knew the mercy of Christ and became an ambassador of mercy. St. Peter was a hero because he knew from his sins that he could not depend on his own efforts, but needed to depend on Christ, and, in doing so, be the Rock for others. I hope your heroes project focuses on the heroism of confronting sin in our lives, accepting mercy, and bearing the witness of that mercy to others in love.

In other words, a spiritual hero is one who keeps faith in God's merciful love. For those who know they are sinners, that takes the courage of Ste. Therese, the simple courage to have confidence in God's love.
