The catechesis of the day of Tiziana, Apostle of the Interior Life

Tiziana lives in Rome as an Apostle of the Interior Life. The Apostles are consecrated women who dedicate themselves full time to prayer, study (particularly philosophy and theology), community life and spiritual apostolate. The community of Apostles of Interior Life (AVI), officially approved by the Church of Rome in 1996, is present in Rome with an apostolic house and a house of formation as well as University of Kansas-Lawrence and Texas A&M in College Station.Their apostolate focuses primarily on young adults through evangelization (the Apostles take the initiative to approach them in their meeting places and particularly on campus and university residences) and spiritual accompaniment. They carry out popular missions, catechesis for deepening of the faith, cultural debates, lectures on current issues, prepare for marriage, preach retreats and spiritual exercises addressed also to the clergy and members of male and female religious institutes. The Apostles pursue three main apostolic objectives: 1 introduction to the life of prayer. Everywhere in every structure we hear about the importance of prayer. However it is necessary for someone to stand by you as you learn from the Holy Spirit; 2. help to discern the will of God in everyday life in order to embrace one's state of life with determination and fidelity; 3. form to do apostolate. It is not uncommon to find people who are very busy, very attentive to the life of faith and to the life of prayer, but which often fail to communicate to others the treasure they have inside. Faith is strengthened through sharing. Together with the School of Faith the Apostles put on the Catholic Spiritual Mentorship Program, a program of formation to become apostles (teaching others to pray, grow in virtue, and make good decisions through appropriate communication techniques) and to make themselves available to respond to people's growing need to be listened to, supported, and encouraged. Over the years the Apostles have formed other branches: the priestly branch, the branch of consecrated laywomen, the lay branch of the Family of the Apostles of the Interior Life, binding themselves with promises to live the charism of the Apostles according to their state of life. --- This podcast can be also listened in italian at this link: www.lacatechesiditiziana.cloud --- This podcast can be also listened in spanish at this link: www.lacatequesisdetiziana.cloud

Letter from Tiziana and the Apostles of the Interior Life
Dear friends, We hope that the season has gotten off to a blessed start! We Apostles are in the process of rebranding these daily meditations/podcasts in the hopes that they may become an apostolate that involves the whole community, including our non-English speakers. Thus we would like to move forward with the podcast in the Italian language only. Thank you for “following” us this far, and thank you for your patience: at times it probably wasn’t the easiest to understand what we were trying to say. God Bless you, and know that we hold you close in our hearts and prayers!Love,The Apostles of the Interior Life

- Press the PLAY button to listen to the catechesis of the day and share if you like -+ A reading from the Book of Proverbs +Like a stream is the king's heart in the hand of the Lord;           wherever it pleases him, he directs it.   All the ways of a man may be right in his own eyes,           but it is the Lord who proves hearts.   To do what is right and just           is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice.   Haughty eyes and a proud heart–           the tillage of the wicked is sin.   The plans of the diligent are sure of profit,           but all rash haste leads certainly to poverty.   Whoever makes a fortune by a lying tongue           is chasing a bubble over deadly snares.   The soul of the wicked man desires evil;           his neighbor finds no pity in his eyes.   When the arrogant man is punished, the simple are the wiser;           when the wise man is instructed, he gains knowledge.   The just man appraises the house of the wicked:           there is one who brings down the wicked to ruin.   He who shuts his ear to the cry of the poor           will himself also call and not be heard.The Gospel of the Lord.

Some fell on the rock; and as it grew up, it withered for lack of moisture. Some fell among thorns, and the thorns grew with it and choked it. Some fell into good soil, and when it grew, it produced a hundredfold.’ As he said this, he called out, ‘Let anyone with ears to hear listen!’Then his disciples asked him what this parable meant. He said, ‘To you it has been given to know the secrets of the kingdom of God; but to others I speak in parables, so that“looking they may not perceive,and listening they may not understand.”‘Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God. The ones on the path are those who have heard; then the devil comes and takes away the word from their hearts, so that they may not believe and be saved. The ones on the rock are those who, when they hear the word, receive it with joy. But these have no root; they believe only for a while and in a time of testing fall away. As for what fell among the thorns, these are the ones who hear; but as they go on their way, they are choked by the cares and riches and pleasures of life, and their fruit does not mature. But as for that in the good soil, these are the ones who, when they hear the word, hold it fast in an honest and good heart, and bear fruit with patient endurance.The Gospel of the Lord.

So when he heard about Jesus, he sent some elders of the Jews to persuade him to come and save his servant's life. The elders came to Jesus and begged him earnestly, saying, "He deserves this of you, for he loves our people and even built a synagogue for us."Jesus went with them. He was not far from the house when the captain sent friends to give this message, "Sir, do not trouble yourself for I am not worthy to welcome you under my roof. You see I didn't approach you myself. Just give the order and my servant will be healed. For I myself, a junior officer, give orders to my soldiers and I say to this one: 'Go,' and he goes; and to the other: 'Come,' and he comes; and to my servant: 'Do this,' and he does it."On hearing these words, Jesus was filled with admiration. He turned and said to the people with him, "I say to you, not even in Israel have I found such great faith." The people sent by the captain went back to his house; there they found that the servant was well.The Gospel of the Lord.

But just when he had resolved to do this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, "Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife, for the child conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will bear a son, and you are to name him Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins."

He also told them a parable: "No one tears a piece from a new garment and sews it on an old garment; otherwise the new will be torn, and the piece from the new will not match the old. And no one puts new wine into old wineskins; otherwise the new wine will burst the skins and will be spilled, and the skins will be destroyed. But new wine must be put into fresh wineskins.

He got into one of the boats, the one belonging to Simon, and asked him to put out a little way from the shore. Then he sat down and taught the crowds from the boat. When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, 'Put out into the deep water and let down your nets for a catch.' Simon answered, 'Master, we have worked all night long but have caught nothing. Yet if you say so, I will let down the nets.' When they had done this, they caught so many fish that their nets were beginning to break. So they signalled to their partners in the other boat to come and help them. And they came and filled both boats, so that they began to sink. But when Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus' knees, saying, 'Go away from me, Lord, for I am a sinful man!' For he and all who were with him were amazed at the catch of fish that they had taken; and so also were James and John, sons of Zebedee, who were partners with Simon. Then Jesus said to Simon, 'Do not be afraid; from now on you will be catching people.' When they had brought their boats to shore, they left everything and followed him.The Gospel of the Lord.

- Press the PLAY button to listen to the catechesis of the day and share if you like -+ A reading from the holy Gospel, according to Matthew +Jesus said to his disciples, "Imagine someone who, before going abroad, summoned his servants to entrust his property to them. He gave five talents of silver to one, then two to another, and one to a third, each one according to his ability; and he went away. He who received five talents went at once to do business with the money and gained another five. The one who received two did the same and gained another two. But the one with one talent dug a hole and hid his master's money."After a long time, the master of those servants returned and asked for a reckoning. The one who received five talents came with another five talents, saying: 'Lord, you entrusted me with five talents, but see I have gained five more with them.' The master answered: 'Very well, good and faithful servant, since you have been faithful in a few things, I will entrust you with much more. Come and share the joy of your master.' Then the one who had two talents came and said: 'Lord, you entrusted me with two talents; I have two more which I gained with them.' The master said: 'Well, good and faithful servant, since you have been faithful in little things, I will entrust you with much more. Come and share the joy of your master.'"Finally, the one who had received one talent came and said: 'Master, I know that you are an exacting man. You reap what you have not sown and gather what you have not invested. I was afraid, so I hid your money in the ground. Here, take what is yours.' But his master replied: 'Wicked and worthless servant, you know that I reap where I have not sown and gather where I have not invested. Then you should have deposited my money in the bank, and you would have given it back to me with interest on my return."Therefore, take the talent from him, and give it to the one who has ten. For to all those who have, more will be given, and they will have an abundance; but from those who are unproductive, even what they have will be taken from them. As for that useless servant, throw him out into the dark where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.'"The Gospel of the Lord.
