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

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

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.
