    7. Richness of Catholicism is “tradition and faith,” we must commit ourselves to this faith-filled tradition to “know” Jesus and follow Him who gives new life.

    B. Religious should try to live the essence of the Gospels and the church.
    C. As religious, we should live affective and effective bond with Jesus in the congregation and in the mission.

    QUESTION
    1. Whether Jesus is disciple or master? Can we call Jesus the first disciple? Since he served God and lived the discipleship?
    2. How can the kingdom of God be a new form of life?
    3. A liturgy professor once said: The Holy spirit does not come down whenever we call to inspire us or help us. If it comes, it comes to take full possession of us (Holy Spirit over shadowed Mary) and we no more ourselves but the holy Spirit controls us for a purpose. Therefore, is it right or wrong to ask for the help of the Holy Spirit.
