As we Catholics continue to celebrate the Easter season, we are excited about sharing with you a new service from the Yeshua Catholic International Leadership Institute.
It’s our new Weekly Catholic Leader.
We plan to publish it every week — except when those weeks when we publish The Catholic Leader, our monthly flagship publication.
Whereas our monthly Catholic Leader runs to several screens (or pages if you print it out) and includes several stories on a variety of topics, each issue of the Weekly Catholic Leaderwill deal with just a single story about a single topic – one we hope will be relevant and imminently practical for leaders in all walks of life, from parents to the top officials of large international organizations.
As always, our focus will be on highlighting what Jesus taught and modeled regarding leadership, and how modern leadership research is affirming his lessons and leadership behaviors.
We’re adding this new service because we want to help Catholics everywhere more fully integrate their faith with their lives.
Often, especially when our lives are caught up in an almost overwhelming load of tasks and responsibilities and what we know about our faith comes largely from what we learned as children and adolescents, integrating our faith and our lives appears to be just one more daunting task on our plate.
It doesn’t have to be that way. The Son of God willed us a good life, a purposeful life, a meaningful, generous and satisfying life that would help us become all that he equipped us to be even while we help build the Kingdom for all to enjoy and share.
In this Easter season, please try to set a few minutes aside each day to consider how God is calling you to live — to thrive as you develop your talents and strive to serve the common good. Meanwhile, we’ll do all we can to help you connect the dots to achieve the life God wishes you to have and to share.
Happy Easter … and blessings always,
Owen Phelps, Ph.D.
Director, Yeshua Catholic International Leadership Institute
