Fall: Change For Christ
Here at Saint Gregory's the season of fall is finally showing its true colors. Colors of deep contemplation and shallow shades of browns, yellows and greens are all starting to cover the trees as well as the floor. Every morning before class I make my way down the paved walkway and am surrounded by leaves all on the floor, and cool fresh air that I can't get enough of. From spring to fall colors I have come to the analogy that Christ is allowing us to change. Change colors that is. We can be bright and colorful in the springtime. When fall comes I think It's a reminder that no matter who we are, whether its people of faith or not. We are all experiencing Christ calling to change who we are, and whether we like it or not, we do change colors. The fact of the matter is what draws us deeply more in Christ is Christ himself. So when we think of fall and the colors of it. We are really accepting the change that comes within us. Fall break, it's time for a change, change for Christ.
My name is Br. Vincent Mary Carrasco, my friends call me Vinny. I graduated with a Bachelors in Theology and currently in my first year of temporary vows in formation with the Capuchin Franciscan province of Mid-America studying at St. John Vianney Seminary. I enjoy blogging and bringing out the greater message and bigger picture in life. I have always had a passion for helping those people who have no one to help them. One of my favorite things is seeing someone joyful and happy because of the work or joy that we bring. In my experiences, I give catholic insight, prayers, reflections and thinking that help me grow in my own faith. I hope you enjoy it.
