The exclusive interview with Pope Francis in American Magazine.

So much is being said in the media right now about Pope Francis, and truly much of it is some distortion of what he said or didn’t say.

The best thing we can all do is take the time to read the actual interview. Then, at least we will be starting from fact and not conjecture.

From there we can discuss what it means and if necessary how to apply it to our lives.

But let’s first actually read the interview.

The Joy of Christ – An ‘Imagine Sisters’ Vocational Video

This morning, why not take a few minutes and share this with someone…

Few will grow to hear the calling of a religious vocation if it is never made an option to them.

Plus, this video is a perfect example of recognizing the importance of joy in life.

Daughters of St. Paul: “Ask the postulants” Web Vlog

The Imagine Sisters Movement is a fantastic thing. It is group started by some of the Daughters of Saint Paul and a few lay people to help spread and grow female religious vocations. It is fair to say that it is off to a fantastic start.

Similarly, the Daughters of Saint Paul have a few dynamic sisters that have really grabbed social media by the horns and are using it to grown their voice in the world. The most recent example is a fantastic idea called, “Ask the postulants.” It is a YouTube/VLog series and features two younger postulants. Here is their first episode:

This is how you do New Media. It isn’t just about putting the same old message into a new medium, it is about conforming the message to the medium as well. This video is much more effective than a 4 minute video highlighting the Daughters of St. Paul. They deserve kudos and I hope to see more orders doing something similar.

Girls need to see that these are real people living real and holy lives. Yet, by making this a more casual interaction, it gives young women insight into a life of reality, and not one cloaked in mystery. The idea of living a life that is counter-cultural is scary. That is how the evil forces work, making a religious life a real option, that exists in joy, love, and holiness is the best way to appeal to young women.

Hats off to the DSP and Imagine Sisters.
